Eco-Friendly Kitty Litter

Traditional clay and silica cat litters are mined products and therefore are neither environmentally friendly or sustainable. Furthermore, they are not readily biodegradable and add to landfill sites across the country. For those cat owners out there that are concerned about the environment, the good news is that there are a few environmentally friendly cat litters available. There are corn based kitty litters, wood pellet kitty litters, and recycled newspaper cat litters on the market, all are biodegradable and therefore substantially reduce landfill contributions of our feline friends.

The World's Best Cat Litter is a corn based clumping cat litter that is scoop-able and flushable, making it easy and convenient to dispose of. It is 99% dust free, and contains no chemicals or perfumes, so will not harm your cat. It comes in regular and extra strength.

Natural Pine Fresh Wood cat litter is made of 100% natural pine, and contains no dust or chemicals. It comes in pellet form and is flushable or compost-able, making it another worthy option for eco-concious cat lovers.

My favourite, Yesterday's News, is made from recycled newspaper, recycled cardboard and recycled industrial sawdust, and is also completely biodegradable, making it a remarkably eco-friendly solution to your kitty waste issues. It comes in pellet form, and is reported to be 300 times more absorbent than regular cat litters, offering an economical alternative. It is also dust and chemical free, making it healthy for you, your cat, and the environment.

All the above products can be ordered online from Pet Promenade, so, when next shopping for your kitty's toiletries, consider the environment and opt for eco-friendly solutions to your kitty's ablutions.
