✅  Very Warm and Cosy, offering excellent insulation to the floors of cages and kennels 

✅  Has High Absorbency, The Shred is Designed to Soak up Fluid, meaning you get longer between bedding changes, when you clean out and you remove less. Most small animals can go 18 days between changes if you add a thick enough initial layer, they will stay dry on top.

✅  It is Triple Dust Extracted for Respiratory Health

✅ It makes great, warm mulch as a secondary us after animal bedding. Small shred and soiling gives cardboard ideal conditions to break down fast

✅ It is Safe to be disposed of in your brown bin for excellent compost along with the packaging

Preparation and Usage

How to help your Pet adjust to EcoShred Bed Bedding?

With new bedding it is important to give your Pet time to adjust to the new bedding. Your pet will adjust quicker if you mix this bedding with existing bedding for 1-2 weeks. Slowly remove previous bedding and replace with Ecoshred Bed when cleaning the enclosure.

Does Ecoshred Bed need a layer of anything underneath?

Ecoshred Bed does not need a layer of anything underneath.  While some people like using pads, we advise against it for environmental reasons and safety reasons because if pads are chewed they become a choking hazard, and it is is an unecessary expense if you are using Ecoshred Bed.  Ecoshred Bed will keep the bottom of your hutches and set ups dry, keep your friends dry and cosy with less cleaning than conventional bedding. Our customers are reporting up to a month with the 7KG bag, so 20KG bags will give you great value between changes, and it LASTS LONGER!

1 Use a clean tray to fill the tray with Ecoshred Bed with a layer of 4-5cm.

2 Regularly remove soiling and solid waste using a litter scoop.

3 Every 2-3 weeks* remove the bedding and empty the tray and spray areas with healthy organic microbes to keep the healthy bacteria working for odour control and respiratory health. Ecoshred Bedding is 100% biodegradable and can be disposed into the bin or compost bin.

*This varies on type of pet and depends on age and size of the as well, but we’ve tested our system with the messiest of horses and ducks!
