Did you know that cat litter generates 2% of the UK's domestic waste? It's pretty shocking to think that our beautiful little fur balls contribute to the masses of waste each year. I'm always on the look out for environmentally cat products and so when Natusan got in touch about trying a eco-friendly solution to cat litter, I was really pleased to give it a go.
Natusan are an easy-to-use monthly subscription service for London postcodes who have created a new kind of natural cat litter. They deliver it right to your door and, once your month is up, Natusan will collect the used litter to be composted and, later, turned in to fertiliser. That fertiliser then goes on to help grow trees around London with Trees for Cities.
x1 guidance leaflet for assembling your litter kit, x1 waterproof delivery bag - this comes in handy when Natusan, allowing you to leave it outside for their collection. x1 leak-proof, recyclable cardboard litter tray, x2 bags of biodegradable, natural cat litter (a 10L bag and a 7L bag), x1 cardboard scooper and x1 swap tray.
Of course, a big pro of using Natusan is that they offer a convenient service that means fresh litter can be delivered straight to your door; all whilst helping the planet and reducing domestic waste. Being a cardboard box also, Ripley wasted very little time inspecting it and was quick to get inside. But if you're nervous about easing your cat in to using a new type of litter, I actually used the recyclable litter in her current hooded tray. This has a door and keeps all mess inside and it allowed her to get used to the new texture and smells. I then transferred the litter back in to the cardboard.
I'm really pleased to have had the chance to try a natural, bio-degradable cat litter in a bid to make little changes in the home to help the environment. Huge thanks to Natusan for allowing me to try out their service. If you're a London cat parent and would like to find out more about Natusan, you can visit their website or their FAQ page for more.
Well, that's it for another lifestyle review. I appreciate it might seem odd reviewing cat litter but I think it's important to make these changes in the home which make such a difference to the environment. As I wrote this, also, I couldn't get Smelly Cat out of my head either. None-the-less, I hope this is helpful and some food for thought. But tell me, what changes have you made to be more environmentally friendly? I'm keen to find out more about eco-friendly pet products so please do leave your recommendations in the comment section below.
Until next time fellow cat lovers,
