100% biodegradable, non-allergenic cat pan liner on the market.

Cat waste should not be composted, as its composition can be quite toxic. Cat waste should always be scooped from the litter box and then put in your trash. There are a number of new biodegradable cat litters on the market. We also do not recommend flushing it down the toilet because cat poop may endanger sea otters.

Using these biodegradable cat pan liners to dispose of the remaining biodegradable litter makes good environmental sense.

Biodegradable cat pan liners are non-allergenic. Cats can be allergic to plastic and other known allergens. Allergies usually build up over time from constant contact with the allergen. Calicos, Tortiseshells, Black cats and Siamese cats are more prone to allergies than other breeds.

If you suspect your cat has an allergy (red, itchy rashes), consult your veterinarian to determine the source. It is best to use hard-fired ceramic bowls, instead of molded plastic, for serving your cat food. Using a biodegradable cat litter made naturally from renewable grain crops may protect your cat from certain chemicals. Using BioBag non-allergenic liners is an environmentally safe way to further protect your pet.

100% biodegradable

100% compostable

No polyethylene is used in the production process.

Naturally, bags made from corn instead of polyethylene is a major advance in environmental technology.

Only GMO free certified corn is used.

Soy-based inks and dyes are CEN certified for restricted use of heavy metals.

DEBIO certified for use in organic agriculture.

Certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute to meet the ASTM D6400 specification. Meets California SB 1749 requirements.

Shelf stable, just like paper plates or paper towels. There are no chemical additives to enhance decomposition. The bags biodegrade naturally when expose to the earth’s elements and micro-organisms in the soil.

They “breathe”, which allows heat and moisture to escape or evaporate. This feature reduces bacterial build-up of collected waste, thus reducing odor.

Will decompose in a controlled composting environment in 10-45 days, leaving no harmful residues behind.

Each liner is approximately 31.1" x 15.3". It is 1.12" thick.

10 liners per package.
