why wheat works
The science is simple, we use wheat enzymes and starches to enhance clumping and make smelly pet odors virtually disappear. But that’s not all. Our ingredients are biodegradable and made of renewable resources so everything we take from the earth can go right back into the ground. Farmer-owned and farmer-grown, you could say we know a little something about what makes sWheat Scoop Mother Nature’s cat litter.
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.

traditional cat litter vs. sWheat Scoop
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 and made from renewable resources. No planet harmed in the making of this cat litter. It’s that simple.
