We've worked hard to make Boxiecat litter 99% dust-free and are always trying to improve upon this!
The folks at Boxiecat are just like all cat lovers - we look for the best performing and most healthy cat litter for ourselves and our feline family, and Boxiecat litter has a lower dust content than any other litter we've ever tried - both clay and other types.
It's important to us to provide the correct performance expectation for our product. As many of our subscribers have pointed out - no litter no cat litter is completely dust free, and even a 0.01% dust content can be visible.
We've also noticed that the perception of dust can be subjective, and some environmental factors that can contribute to visible dust are dry and hot weather, whereas humid weather will lessen visible dust. It's helpful to know that how litter is handled can also affect dust. Shaking a bag of litter or pouring litter into a litter box from a height will create dust, however pouring it from a low height will reduce dust.
How does Boxiecat litter have such a low dust content?
Boxiecat litter has such a low dust content in part because of the pure quality of our litter material - we don't add any cheaper filler materials, and also because of the care we take when making it, packaging it, and shipping it to you.
As the ASPCA points out, "many scoopable cat litters are processed in such a way to remove as much of the fine dust as possible." This is true at Boxiecat - we remove all the dust possible during the process of making our litter. Clay is a soft material, and when grains rubs against one another they can create some dusting. For this reason, when we package our litter we remove dust again, then pack it tightly in our packaging, and tightly in our shipping boxes to prevent movement during transit.
