      What does 'biodegradable' actually mean?
      According to the Cambridge dictionary:

      Biodegradable packaging helps to limit the amount of harmful chemicals released into the atmosphere.

      For something to be biodegradable, it will eventually break down in the right conditions if there is surrounding fungi and bacteria. The basic elements it breaks down to will then become a part of the natural substances of the earth without leaving any toxins in the atmosphere.

      When cardboard is shredded and soaked to decompose, it will breakdown pretty quick. Most of it is completely broken down within three months. The ones to watch out for are actually things such as milk cartons which have a waxy finish to them. These are not so good for the environment.

      FAQ

      Instructions for assembly of cat travel litter trays:

      1. Lay kitty litter trays on flat surface.
      2. Fold up both of the sides and then both the ends to about 80 degrees.
      3. Angle a side to align with the crease on one of the ends to form the first corner.
      4. Wrap corner flap around side whilst pushing locking tab through the slot provided in the side. 
      5. Repeat procedure 4 with the remaining corners.
      6. Flatten locking tabs against the sides.
      7. Use as a normal litter tray. With coating side in we estimate that the cat tray will last at least 10 days, with coating out the life will depend on the amount of soiling.
      8. The cat poop tray can be disposed of by composting or burying where it will rapidly biodegrade or if necessary it can be placed in your re-cycling bin bags for processing elsewhere.

      Do cats need a cat litter tray each? 

      Generally speaking, yes cats should have one litter tray each. It should be easy to clean or as in our case, easy to dispose of. 

      How often do you change a cat litter tray?

      You should try to change the cat litter tray once a day and clean them at least once per week. However, with these degradable ones there is no washing required!

      How do you dispose of cat poop?

      There is not a lot of good from cat poop. Cat faeces contain 2 ½ times the amount of nitrogen as cattle manure, there is a similar amount of phosphorus and potassium which means it's not great keeping it within soil or the environment. You should remove the disposable tray and its contents into a fastened up bag and dispose of it in the bin. 

      How often do cats go to the toilet in a day?

      it's surprising how often they go. Typically we see between 3 and 5 times per day. 

      How many litter trays should I provide my cat?

      In a perfect world you would provide two litter trays. They prefer to pee and defecate in separate locations however if you have many cats, try one tray per cat plus one extra for them all to share.

      What kind of cat litter should I use?

      Grey Litter

      You can use clay natural clumping litter which ensures it clumps together and is easy to remove and clean. Clumping is caused by a chemical called sodium bentonite which if ingested can be dangerous. Cats do lick their paws so be wary and do a little research. 

      Clay litter is stripe mined. Simply put it COULD be damaging the environment and wildlife by the way it is sourced. Research is key again here. 

      Crystal litter

      Not bio-degradable, and can be painful for cats to stand on leading them to no longer use the litter trays. Chemicals from this can be harmful to both you and your cats because of the Blue dye used called cobalt chloride which is not ideal. 

      Paper litter

      It's better than the other two types listed but in reality has no benefits with clumping cat litter and odour control. 

      Plant based litter 

      At the end of the day, it's about 'trying' to be better and more responsible. If there is a litter to choose which is environmentally friendly then these types would be the best natural cat litter choice. They are made from corn, wheat and soy and no clumping agents will be required. These could attract pests and are also not perfect. 

      We cannot recommend a specific type of litter but we have tried to point out some of the issues with the different types to enable you to go and make an informed decision.
