Our goal is to establish long-term relationships wherever possible, which enable truly collaborative partnership. Below are the local partners we currently support.
SPCA - Tokoroa SPCA / Waikato Paws for Life
We’ve been sponsoring these organisations since 2010, and provide our kitty litter product on an on-going basis to the Tokoroa SPCA/Waikato SPCA and Paws for Life charities. The Tokoroa SPCA and Paws for Life are both registered charities whose mission is to provide a safe haven; to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals large or small. Through animal welfare and education, they work to create a community where all animals receive the compassion and respect they deserve.
Tokoroa Community Gardens
BPM provides a granular grade of zeolite for use as a composting conditioner to the Tokoroa Community Gardens.

The community gardens are located in Braeside Ave, hours are as follows: Summer - 8.00am - 2.30pm, winter - 8.30am -2.30pm (except Mondays - close at 12 noon).
