A cleaner, healthier, more comfortable bedding designed specifically for small animals and birds! Eco-Bedding is 100% recycled paper. The unique and patented process of cutting and folding paper strips makes for an excellent bedding material. Eco-Bedding is highly absorbent, easily compostable, and completely dust free, solving the problem of inhalant irritations or allergies. Since Eco-bed/nest absorbs from the bottom up, the top layer stays dry longer and animals are always on a dry surface. East to spot clean. Eco-bed/nest extends bedding changes from every two to three days to a week or more. Eco-bed/nest holds up to 3.1 times its weight in water. Eco-bed/nest is made of cleanly cut 1/8-inch strips of paper fibers, which means dust is virtually eliminated. Respiratory ailments and other problems resulting from airborne particles are drastically reduced which is important for animals or birds with sensitive respiratory systems. Great for Asthma & Allergy sufferers (people, animals, and birds). The paper strands form a soft, springy, comfortable mat. The bedding in contact with the animal stays dry, as well, for added comfort. Plus, unlike wood-based beddings, Eco-bed/nest wont stick to the animals. Can be used as a top layer on other beddings that pack down (shavings, pellets, etc.), because Eco-bed/nest stays fluffed-up. Also, animals can burrow and tunnel in it.
