5 Eco-Friendly Litters For Cat Parents Who Want To Go Green

Taking individual steps to go green is an essential part of helping to save the environment, and it’s a responsible lifestyle choice that you can also apply to caring for your cat!

One of the easiest and most beneficial ways to take your feline supplies in a greener direction is to switch to eco-friendly cat litters.

They’re made out of renewable, biodegradable materials, like paper, nuts, and even grass, which are processed in a way so that they can help absorb your cat’s litter box deposits–and those yucky odors.

Here are five eco-friendly litters for cat parents who want to go green.

1. Clumping Walnut Cat Litter
