We live in a world where convenience has become paramount. When you walk down the aisles of any grocery store, the shelves are now dominated by disposable, single-serving packages made for people who are overwhelmed with busy schedules and mile-long to-do lists. Despite increasing concerns about global environmental issues, the fast-paced nature of modern life often leads us to believe that we must choose immediacy and ease over long-term sustainability. At Boxiecat, we believe that with a little forward-thinking and ingenuity, we can give our customers the best of both worlds!
When Boxiecat owner, Josh, first came up with the idea for a subscription cat litter delivery business, he wanted to create a service that was both convenient for customers and environmentally friendly. Josh knew that “in order for a business model to be truly good for people and their cats, it has to take environmental impact into account. The immediate benefits of the product and service have to be grounded in a structure that promotes long-term well-being and it is important to make sure that Boxiecat considers both convenience and sustainability.”
Boxiecat provides a highly useful service that cat-lovers can enjoy without feeling guilty about environmental drawbacks. According to Barbara Nefer of About.com, “the litter itself is environmentally friendly, since it’s a biodegradable clumping variety, and its packaging is designed to be as earth-friendly as possible.” Boxiecat’s signature bags are recyclable and the boxes in which customers’ orders are shipped are Cradle to Cradle™ certified which is the highest certification for manufacturing and considers the full life cycle of the product. The biggest factor that contributes to Boxiecat’s status as a green business, however, is that Boxiecat ships via USPS. Because USPS already makes stops at every house in America six days a week, Boxiecat takes advantage of existing distribution routes rather than creating new ones. This may seem like a small detail, but it allows Boxiecat subscribers to eliminate repeat round trips to the store, saving an estimated 40,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions for every 1,000 subscribers annually!
While Boxiecat is a little more expensive than your average store-bought brand, the exceptional performance of this premium brand of clay kitty litter makes it well worth the price tag. Boxiecat litter is 100% natural with advanced dust control and unparalleled clumping and odor-fighting capabilities. Paired with free shipping and Boxiecat’s commitment to environmentally-sound practices, the Boxiecat litter delivery service is a sustainable convenience that cat-lovers can feel good about.
