In a bid to raise awareness of the amount of cat litter going to landfill, sustainable cat litter firm Natusan has teamed up with 27-year-old illustrator Max Tilse to create recyclable litter boxes with miniature fairytale façades modelled on homes spanning three periods Victorian, Tudor and Edwardian.
Designed to be in keeping with your current home or one that you long to own, the collection of three period-inspired litter boxes are made from durable, recyclable cardboard, and are also part of a zero-waste subscription service that delivers biodegradable litter kits to customers’ homes, which are then collected, composted and turned into fertiliser a month later.
Renowned for his series of miniature sketches in front of iconic landmarks, including London’s Big Ben to Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Natusan commissioned 27-year old illustrator Max Tilse to curate the collection.
Rachel Andre, director of Natusan, said: “Making a conscious change can go a long way when it comes to looking to improve your pet’s environmental impact; from switching to a sustainable, organic cat litter, to trying toys and bedding which are made of natural fibres – there are a variety of simple solutions to help matters.
“Looking after your cat’s loo is admittedly one of the less glamorous parts of being a pet parent – but is part and parcel of looking after our four-legged friends. With over a third of owners (37%) admitting their pets accessories reflect their own style. Whether you aspire to own one, or currently live in a period property, these coordinating eco accessories could add their very own bit of curb appeal to your home.
She added: “We are always looking to help conscious cat parents and the environment. Our 100% natural and biodegradable clumping litter has been purposefully designed to reduce waste – helping you to make a difference. Period properties aren’t always known for their eco creds, so we thought this collection could be a great way of giving them a sustainable makeover.”
Self-taught illustrator Max Tilse said: “Having two cats myself, I had no idea of the environmental impact of cat litter, so it was great to combine two of my passions.”
