Yesterday's News® makes perfect sense for anyone who is environmentally conscious. A significant portion of the content of our litters comes from post-consumer waste derived from newspapers. When newspapers aren't recycled, they are either dumped into landfills or incinerated, and that's not healthy for the planet. We encourage everyone to send their discarded newspapers to a recycling center and to support companies that use recycled materials by buying their products.
Concerned about the inks? A decade ago, the inks used to print newspapers and other materials commonly contained toxic heavy metals such as lead and cadmium. Fortunately, that has changed dramatically! Now, most publishers print using harmless organic inks and/or soy-based inks. The process used to make Yesterday's News neutralizes these inks so there will be no residue left on your cat's paws or fur.
