Natural cat litter has opportunities for growth as consumers look for new options.

As consumers continue to look for environmentally-friendly, chemical-free versions of products for themselves, they’re also seeking natural alternatives for their pets. While this trend has already gained a stronghold in food, treats, supplements and other health-related items, it’s just getting started for cat litter.

Manufacturers are making sure that the natural cat litters they’re developing provide benefits for everyone. These organic options provide consumers with a product that creates less dust, encourages litter box use and helps the environment while driving sales growth in a crucial category that provides repeat business.

These materials are in demand, as cat owners are beginning to seek out natural options that won’t harm their pets or the environment.
