why wheat works
There is a simple science to why we chose to make cat litter from 100% wheat. When the wheat is ground, the manufacturing process exposes starch and enzymes that contribute to the sWheatness of our product. The 100% biodegradable wheat enzymes neutralize the odor while the starch helps with clumping. So, with wheat, we have managed to make life better for cats, people and the planet.
how we started
sWheat Scoop’s® story began more than 20 years ago when a family from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota set out to create a litter that would be safer for cats, people and the planet.
Today, sWheat Scoop is produced by Pet Care Systems, an environmentally focused organization that uses secondary wheat from across the Midwest to source its products.
sWheat Scoop natural clumping litter is available throughout North America and in more than 25 countries worldwide. It’s earth-friendly, 100 percent biodegradable and safe for everyone in the house.

from the field
traditional vs. natural
Let’s get scientific for a minute here. Traditional litter is made of clay that is processed through strip mining. This involves the removal of trees, shrubs, and wildlife to access buried deposits of the profitable materials underneath. So, you guessed it, strip mining is incredibly disruptive to plant and animal life in the area, and pollution issues are prevalent. Also, traditional litter contains hazardous chemicals like sodium bentonite and crystalline silica. Conversely, sWheat Scoop is farmer grown, ground up and then bagged for purchase. It’s that simple.
