One spontaneous morning, we found ourselves walking into one of Miami's "high kill" animal shelters to adopt a friend for our rescue cat. Astonished by the number of cats available, we asked the attendant to show us a cat that was unlikely to be adopted, and therefore euthanized that evening. We were directed to a cage full of kittens, and in the back, was a tiny, dirty, awkward looking tuxedo that could barely stand straight. We were in love!! Leo blossomed into a cat full of personality and energy, a dog in a cat's body! He captivated our hearts and we are so thankful to have found our furkid, Leo!
Leo was the inspiration to do more. As an environmental scientist, and now cat rescue volunteer, EcoLeo founder began creating environmentally friendly products to raise money for the never ending rescue work. EcoLeo developed into a business shortly after thanks to the support from our wonderful customers. With environmental concerns on the rise, it is important now, more than ever, that we consider our carbon footprint in our daily habits. 8 million metric tons of plastic enters our oceans annually with 3600 tons coming from the Los Angeles area alone! Plastic fills up our landfills and kills millions of marine and wildlife animals each year. We sought to make a difference for our cats, our environment and animals in need. EcoLeo gives back by donating a portion of all sales directly to small 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescues, or to fund our own rescue efforts and causes, such as providing veterinary care to animals that we rescue or feeding community cat colonies. Is there an non-profit organization that you would like to support? Shoot us a message, we would love to hear about them!
