Earth Day was founded in 1970 by Wisconsin Senator, Gaylor Nelson, surrounding the Santa Barbara oil spill of 1969. Each year on April 22nd millions of people celebrate Earth Day by making a pledge to do their part to maintain a healthy, sustainable environment.

Automated Pet Care Products, Inc. is also making a pledge. This year, we will host an 'Earth Day Ideas' contest. We invite you to share your recycling tips and energy saving ideas with us by posting a reply to this blog. On April 22nd, we will choose a random winner to receive an ECO friendly Litter-Robot, and a package of biodegradable litter pan liners. We look forward to reading your 'Earth Day Ideas.'
