Eco-Straw Litter

Eco-Straw uses special technology to compress high-fiber wheat straw into a pellet that is twice as absorbent as newspaper-based litter and will absorb 300 percent its weight in moisture. This litter is your ideal choice for a safe, dust-free litter or bedding for your small animal. Size: 8 lb., 20 lb.


As you are aware, a fire at our manufacturing facility recently interrupted the production of several Oxbow products, including our Eco-Straw litter. In the weeks following the fire, we have worked hard to identify an alternate manufacturing solution for this product. Despite our best efforts, we have not been able to identify a viable solution at this time. With this in mind, we regret to inform you that Eco-Straw will be discontinued indefinitely. We understand the value of Eco-Straw and will continue to consider viable manufacturing solutions. In the event that we are able to identify a manufacturing solution for this product in the future, we will keep our customers informed accordingly.

100% wheat straw.
Non-toxic, no odor or dust

  • Eco-Straw uses special technology to compress high fiber wheat straw into a pellet that is twice as absorbent as newspaper based litter and will absorb 300 percent its weight in moisture.
  • When wet, Eco-Straw pellets expand and separate, allowing the wet areas to be scooped on a daily basis. This eliminates waste and the litter will last longer than traditional wood shavings.
  • Natural fiber from the wheat grass plant is not only safe if consumed by your pet, but can be beneficial to the digestive system of rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other plant eating animals.
  • Eco-Straw is your ideal choice for a safe, dust free litter or bedding for your pet. It is toilet flushable and beneficial to the soil when composted. Heat treatment of the pellets guarantees that Eco-Straw will be mite and insect free.
  • Eco-Straw is cleaner and more hygienic for your pet than wood shavings. Due to the unique characteristics of Eco-Straw the urine will migrate below the surface area thereby moving moisture away from your pet.
  • Easier to clean means less time cleaning cages and more time with your pet. Eco-Straw stays in the cage and litter pan and is not easily kicked or thrown out by active pets.
  • Eco-Straw will not track or stick to coats of animals with long hair, thus making the owner and pet more content and happy.

“We love Eco-Straw for our litter needs.  It's easy to use, easy to clean, and keeps the bad odors away.  Plus, it's nice to know it's safe if eaten.  Really great stuff!"

    Family Fave b/c it's yard waste
    Rating 5 out of 5
    I've been an Oxbow convert since I got my first rabbit. I appreciate the quality and community of the brand. Surprised to see litter added to the lineup, i jumped to try it. I love that it is a consistent size, no crumbling. It's held up to a week without changing. Dad actually likes the smell and even better? I feel safe disposing the litter in our Yard Waste bin.
