Eco-Friendly Kitty Litter

Some kitty litters can be burdens on landfills and the traditional clay variety, which is often strip-mined, often contains silica dust, a carcinogen. Below are some tips for using a more eco-friendly litter that is environmentally sound both inside and outside your home. A number of eco-friendly kitty litters are available online.

• Try litter made from recycled newspapers. The paper absorbs just as well as conventional clumping litter, but this approach helps the environment by reusing resources. Two great brands are Yesterdays News and Good Mews.

• Another great option is litter made from reclaimed wood. Sawdust that would normally end up in landfills is concentrated without the use of dangerous chemicals to produce environmentally safe litter. Two brands are Nature’s Earth and Catfresh.

An interesting and good-smelling litter is to purchase alfalfa pellets from a feed store. These are sold for livestock feed, usually in 50# bags. Don't buy rabbit pellets, these are expensive. The plain alfalfa pellets are kind of large and do not contain added nutrients, which you don't need or want to pay for anyway. If you add a cupful to your current litter and increase the amount weekly until you are using alfalfa exclusively, your cat won't reject it's box and start making messes. It really does smell nice and helps cut down on the potty smell.
