This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Disposing of animal waste in an eco-friendly manner can be tough, but you can start your journey by choosing a compostable cat litter. Made from natural materials, these break down in a compost pile's heat, saving them from ending up in a landfill. Note, though, that this requires more care than working with vegetable scraps and that the finished product should never be added to food crops. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best compostable cat litter on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 22, 2019:

Investigated choices made from biodegradable and natural materials, including coconut, bamboo, wheat, and wood. Added sWheat Scoop Fast Clumping and Next Gen Pet Forest Fresh as top choices thanks to their low dust and smell combined with a low impact on the environment. Also selected the Feline Pine Original despite the fact that it tends to be very "love it or hate it."
