    Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Clumping Cat Litter – Eco-Friendly Litter Made With Corn Cobs and Baking Soda

    Arm & Hammer is best known for their baking soda, but they also make an environmentally-friendly cat litter too.  Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Clumping Cat Litter is made from corn fibres, which makes it 50% lighter than other litters.  Unlike some other corn-based cat litters that take corn out of the food stream, Arm & Hammer’s litter uses corn cobs that would otherwise be left to rot in the fields.  Of course, baking soda is also a quintessential component of this litter.  It’s great for absorbing odours and I routinely sprinkle some into Furball’s cat box.

    I also learned a cool green fact about Arm & Hammer.  Did you know they were the only corporate sponsor for the very first Earth Day in 1970?

    I haven’t used this cat litter myself, but did do some quick web searches for cat litter reviews. The reviews were all over the map with some users claiming it was the best thing since catnip and others saying it was the worst litter they had ever used.  I think the reviews depend on your expectations. Check these out for yourself:

    As a user of eco-friendly cat litter (Furball uses Cat Country), I find green cat litters do an adequate job of odour control so long as the cat box is cleaned daily and a few scoops of litter are added every few days to refresh the box.  I’ve never used the traditional clumping clay litter, although my parents did about a decade ago for another cat.  From what I recall, that litter was really easy to use and did indeed help cover the stink factor if you were a lazy scooper. 

    When you compare eco-friendly litters to that standard, then no, it really doesn’t work as well.  However, when you factor in the impact that clumping litter has on the environment, daily scooping isn’t really that big a deal.  I’m still doing it AND I have a newborn baby to look after, so if I can do it, anyone can.
