Do you test on animals?
Yes and no. Yes we do “test” our product on animals, but no we do not subject them to any cruelty.The testing we perform for our litters is in relation to preference, clumping, weight, etc. so our “testers” are only using our products as they are intended to be used. Fortunately, the ingredients of our products are all naturally occurring and have a longstanding presence in human and feline history. We felt we had enough precedent to rely upon when it came to unintended uses and therefore opted not to rub cat litter in anyone’s eyes just to see what happens.
Why are Next Gen litters sold by volume instead of by weight?
Our proprietary manufacturing process makes Next Gen’s litters very lightweight and absorbent while at the same time very BIG on performance! One 10L bag weighs approximately 6 pounds, and is equivalent in effectiveness to multiple bags of competing litters. If we packaged Next Gen litter by weight, a 20 pound bag of Next Gen litter would be about 3.3 times the size of our current 10 liter bag.
Is your litter low in dust?
Next Gen litters are extremely low-dust litters. Cat owners facing feline asthma or allergy issues prefer Next Gen litters for this reason.
What kind of wood is used in Next Gen litters?
Next Gen litters are manufactured using recycled industrial wood scrap. The scraps are primarily kiln dried cedar and cypress woods. Next Gen does not use raw timber in the manufacturing of our products.
Is your litter environmentally safe?
All of Next Gen’s litters are made with all natural ingredients like wood and green tea. Next Gen litters are safe for the environment and can actually be disposed of in the garden as mulch.
