KINGSEY FALLS, QC, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Cascades will launch a new pet homes line for small animals made from recycled cardboard. This product line includes a cat chalet whose design was inspired by Canadian hunting lodges, a cat teepee inspired by First Nations traditions and a birdhouse.

Cardboard Cat Chalet and Teepee
Fun and playful, these cat houses are also perfect for lapdogs, ferrets or domestic rabbits. The recycled cardboard teepee and chalet were created by two young industrial designers from the company Loyal Luxe, a Québec company located in Mont St-Hilaire.

Cardboard Birdhouse
The birdhouse can accommodate several species of birds, such as the blue tit, the downy woodpecker and the nuthatch. Made from 100% recycled cardboard, at least 90% of which is postconsumer, the birdhouse roof is made with NorShield® cardboard which renders it water-repellent, thus protecting it against bad weather and extending its life. With its printed design, the birdhouse can be decorated by your children who will have fun making it more attractive.

These products are recyclable or compostable (industrial compost) with the exception of soiled pieces, which must be thrown in the garbage.

Donation to the SPCA
The first days of July are a period where many household pets are abandoned. Cascades has thus decided to support the SPCA via a donation for each cardboard teepee and chalet sold during the month of July 2011.  The company hopes to raise the awareness of the population to the cause of abandoned animals during this period of the year.

On the Web
Pet homes will be for sale at Cascades' online boutique,, starting June 27th, 2011. Visit the SPCA Web site at, for additional information on the partnership between the two organizations. Watch for the next few eco responsible products from now to the end of the year, and regularly visit the online boutique for more information on Cascades' latest innovations.

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres. The Company employs more than 11,000 employees, who work in more than 100 units located in North America and Europe. Its management philosophy, its more than 45 years of experience in recycling and its continued efforts in research and development are strengths that enable Cascades to create new products for its customers. Cascades' shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange, under the ticker symbol CAS.
