Naturally Fresh: The Best Cat Litter for Odor Control

When it comes to litter box odor control, walnut shells don’t usually spring to mind. Naturally Fresh is changing that. If you’ve ever wondered how to neutralize ammonia in cat litter the fresh and natural way, look no further than our eco-friendly formulas.

Cat litter smell? Try walnut shells.

Perfumes. Air fresheners. Scented candles. Walnuts? Of all the things that eliminate odors, walnuts aren’t usually on anyone’s list. But they’re at the top of ours at Naturally Fresh. Why? Walnut shells have the organic ability to neutralize odors, particularly ammonia. And because of our dedication to eco-friendly practices and sustainability, walnut shells were the obvious choice for the star ingredient of our natural cat litter. At our solar-powered facility, we transform a food byproduct from would-be waste into walnut shell cat litter. It’s all so pet parents can give their cat kids a biodegradable product that’s healthy for them and the planet — and conveniently doubles as the best cat litter for odor control.

How does Naturally Fresh compare to the environmentally friendly cat litter competition?

You love your cat kid and want to give him the best of everything. You also don’t want to deal with cat litter smell. So how do you find the best cat litter for odor that’s also the best natural cat litter? While corn cat litter, wheat cat litter, and pine pellet cat litter provide a healthier alternative to clay-based cat litter, none of them have the organic odor control that walnut shells provide. For example, our non-clumping pellet litter has up to seven times the odor control of the leading non-clumping pellet litters, making it the best non-clumping cat litter for odor control.

What’s that smell? Not your litter box if it’s filled with Naturally Fresh. While walnut shells organically neutralize odors, some of our formulas also contain natural boosts that further eliminate smells, no matter how many cat kids you have. Our Multi-Cat formula includes a special counteractant that tackles all multi-cat litter box smells, and our Ultra Odor Control formula comes with a moisture-activated probiotic that eliminates all odors quickly. If you prefer a fresh-smelling litter box, our Alpine Meadow Scent® formula has a perfume-free, natural scent courtesy of herbs and botanicals. If your cat kids do better with an unscented non-clumping cat litter, stock up on our pellet litter , which boasts major odor control and works for all small pet children, including rabbits, ferrets, and gerbils.
