    Last summer I forgot to add more stuff to our worm bin for a couple weeks and when I opened the bin lid a mass of fruit flies flew up into my face. Ewww!

    May I point out that washing the recycle box now and then, and using baking soda, will help with any smells?

    Well, that's good news to cat owners, since it means that consumers are asking for "greener" kitty litter!

      My cats won't touch either one--literally! I had a post-operative cat who couldn't use regular litter for a month (a cancer amputation) and the entire crew stood on the sides of the box for their deposits. I was never so happy to get rid of something in my life, since there were--um--accidents, too. All I can say is take the feline's tastes into account, too. This wasn't the first time I've had this problem. I've thought of getting one of the 'washable' types, but that's a lot of money if they won't use it.

    A cat owner I know uses Tidy Cats Breeze as an alternative to sandy litter, it's a very different system than any I've seen before. There's a layer of pellets over a grate with a pad in a drawer underneath. Urine passes down through the grate and soaks into the pad, poop gets covered by the pellets, and cleaning out the box basically consists of sliding out the drawer and changing the pad with minimal poop scooping. The pellets last for ages so you don't need to change out the whole box every week. And if the pellets get out of the box it's way easier to notice and clean them up than discovering the grit of sandy cat little underfoot.

      Sorry, but I don't see how this product is any "greener", because now you're adding another product to the landfill: the disposable pad. And you've still got the pellets to dispose of eventually.

    I had a GOOD Fri the 13th!
