Q: Why do Next Gen litters cost more than other litters?
A: They actually do not….. When comparing the cost of cat litter it is important to understand the amount of litter used in a 4 or 6 week period. The superior absorbency of Next Gen cat litter means that one 10 liter bag will last one cat up to 6 weeks with daily maintenance. Consider how many bags of clay litter you would need for this same period of time. Our research has concluded that one 10 liter bag of Next Gen litter is equal to 2 to 4 bags of other litters.
Q: Why are Next Gen litters sold by volume instead of by weight?
A: 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.
Q: Do both Green Tea Leaves and Flush Clean litters clump and are they flushable?
A: Both Green Tea Leaves and Flush Clean litters are clumping and flushable litters. They can be safely flushed and will not clog your pipes or septic systems. Additionally because our litters form smaller clumps you dispose of less litter per clump making it more economical.

Q: Is there any impact to Next Gen product from the Natural Disaster in Japan on Next Gen Products ?
A: Some of our loyal customers have expressed concern about radiation contamination in our products from Japan. Let me assure you that our factory and all of the ingredients used in our products are FREE of radiation contamination. Our factory is located 250 miles from the affected nuclear power plant, and the ingredients in our products are imported from outside sources. The USA Customs & Border Protection agency is also inspecting all containers arriving from Japan – and they have found no problem in any product from Japan.
We have been impacted by ocean port congestion which is limiting our import of materials and exporting of the finished products, but we are doing our best to work through these problems. This may create product shortages from time to time – we appreciate your patience and understanding of this situation.
