Earth Day-Friendly Skoon Can Help You Save the Planet

The first Earth Day happened 50 years ago, on April 22, 1970. That day, 20 million Americans stepped out to speak up for protecting the environment and making our planet a better place. Each year since, more and more people have participated and worked to reduce their carbon footprints.

But did you know that this Earth Day you can also reduce your cat’s carbon pawprint? By selecting a health kitty litter like Skoon cat litter, you–and your cat—can commit to saving the planet and making the world healthier for everyone.

Here’s how

Skoon Is inherently Biodegradable

Biodegradable products have a huge impact on the well-being of our planet. Because they naturally degrade, these types of products have little to no impact on our earth. Traditional litters are far from biodegradable.

Typically made from clay, silica and chemicals, and according to Humboldt Pet Supply, these litters aren’t usually processed as waste to biodegrade naturally, nor are they processed in an environmentally-conscious manner. Clay takes so long to break down, in fact, that many landfills use clay as a lining for the bottom of the pit to keep toxins from sinking further into the earth. And that’s still better than silica-based options. Silica cat litters take about a million years to decompose.

On the other hand, Skoon is a completely natural and inherently biodegradable cat litter. The litter is made by breaking down large diatomite boulders into pebbles. Each resulting pebble is a concentrated deposit of fossilized algae skeletons with other naturally occurring minerals. Each Skoon pebble traps odors and absorbs moisture naturally and better than most man-made litter alternatives.

Skoon Is Hypoallergenic

Because Skoon is all-natural, it’s better for respiratory systems—yours and your cat’s. Our hypoallergenic cat litter is non-toxic and low-dust.

Traditional cat litters’ small particles mean that your cat can easily inhale the litter, causing health problems. Skoon’s pebbles are large enough that they eliminate this hazard. No toxins and low dust mean better air to breathe and a healthier planet.

Skoon Is Planet Friendly

Overall, Skoon is 100% natural and healthy for cats, people, and the environment. With no harmful additives or chemicals, Skoon means better breathable air for you and your furry friends. And because it’s four times lighter than clumping litter, it generates less waste, and less energy to produce and transport, therefore, reducing your cat’s carbon footprint over a lifetime. Creating a foundation of support for our environment will determine the legacy we leave behind. 

Switching to a new cat litter may seem like a small step to take, but each small step contributes to big changes for our planet.
