Catalyst Pet, a sustainable, high-performance cat litter made with upcycled soft wood – announces it has received accreditation from the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC), a respected non-profit organization dedicated to creating a more sustainable pet industry.
The PSC’s Accreditation Program enables pet companies to act on their sustainability claims and make their impact come to life. To become accredited, companies must complete a comprehensive third-party sustainability assessment, complete a formal verification of their assessment, and show annual improvement.
In April 2020, the company doubled down on its mission to improve the planet by entering a partnership with rePurpose Global, the world’s first Plastic Credit Platform helping people and companies finance the removal and recycling of ocean-bound plastic waste. The partnership allows Catalyst to fund cutting-edge recycling, support ethical wages for marginalized workers in India, and reduce the amount of plastic waste going to landfills and waterways.
“Our motto is right on every package: Love your pet, change your planet,” said Lindsey Bonnani, senior brand manager for Catalyst. “By getting accredited, we’re able to show our customers, retailers and pet community at large how we’re protecting our planet while offering a high-performance product at the same time. You don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.”
