Composting Kitty Litter with EnsoPet

Are you considering composting your kitty litter with an EnsoPet but unsure about the process? Look no further! We've got you covered with everything you need to know about composting kitty litter with EnsoPet, ensuring a healthy and efficient composting experience.

Choosing the Right Kitty Litter:

First things first, not all kitty litters are created equal when it comes to composting. Opt for kitty litters made from natural sources such as paper, grass, wood, wheat, beans, corn or nuts. These materials are ideal for composting and can even aid in the composting process. However, kitty litters made from synthetics not compatible with composting. Synthetics can introduce toxins into your garden and damage the structure of the soil.   Clay based litters generally don’t compost well. 

Composting Essentials:

Composting requires oxygen, especially in ground composters like the EnsoPet. When adding kitty litter to your EnsoPet, remember not to overload it. Adding too much litter at once can lead to airlock, slowing down or halting the composting process altogether. That's where our EnsoRator comes in handy! Our specially designed aerator ensures proper aeration, promoting faster and more efficient composting. The more you aerate, the better the composting process becomes. 

 Where there is a significant amount of waste, utilising multiple EnsoPet units can be beneficial. This approach not only helps distribute the waste evenly but also ensures adequate oxygenation throughout the composting process, ultimately enhancing decomposition rates and maintaining the overall health of your composting system.

Factors Affecting Composting:

Temperature and moisture levels play crucial roles in the composting process. Warmer weather accelerates composting, while excessive moisture can hinder it. If you can, install your EnsoPet in an area with good drainage.  Additionally, watering your EnsoPet when your garden needs watering ensures optimal moisture levels for composting. Remember, it's better to add waste in small amounts frequently rather than large amounts infrequently. And don't forget to add EnsoPet Starter, which can speed up waste breakdown by at least 50%!
