Revolutionizing pet waste: reLit’s Eco-Conscious Journey

October 11, 2023by melissa

Revolutionizing pet waste: At 1847 Stone Milling, we embarked on a mission rooted in sustainability, innovation, and genuine care for our environment. Our journey began with a simple idea: to create the highest quality, eco-conscious organic flour in Canada. With the unwavering support of the Grain Farmers of Ontario, we not only achieved this goal but also revolutionized the concept of pet waste management.

1. Redefining Pet Waste: From Wheat to Waste to Compost

We harnessed the often overlooked portion of wheat from the milling process and transformed it into something extraordinary: an absorbent, clumping, dust-free, and odour-free litter that is 100% compostable. This means your pet’s waste can go directly into your green bin or composter, reducing landfill waste and redefining how we perceive our pets’ environmental impact.

2. Eco-Certified Excellence

Our commitment to eco-conscious practices is not just a promise; it’s a certification. We are proud holders of the Organic Certification through Eco-Cert Canada for nine years running. Our products are:

  • Non-GMO
  • Free from Synthetic Pesticides or Herbicides

3. Recognitions and Grants

We are honoured to have received support from various organizations, such as:

  • Grain Farmers of Ontario – Grain Innovation Fund
  • Guelph Innovation Centre
    • I.D.E.A Fund
    • COIL
  • AgPartnership Open for e-business
  • Greenbelt Fund
  • Fanshawe College Community Consultancy Program

4. Quality Assurance
