Cat litter is heavy. Heavy as in lifting-a-small-child-into-
The clay litter is effective but its weight has distinct disadvantages. The hefty tubs can be unwieldy for customers, and the freight costs are notably higher than many other products.
Last year, Walmart worked with Oil-Dri to bring a new, lighter cat litter to our customers. The product is about 25 percent lighter than other clay litter but performs just as well. That means a 21-pound container of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light™ offers the same number of uses as a 28-pound container of regular clay litter.
The new product is more than cat- and customer-friendly. Because the product is lighter, we can now fill trucks rather than weighting them. And finally, we’re able to use fewer trucks, which translates to less fuel consumed – a clear plus for the environment.
This change is minimizing our impact on environment and, of course, making life better for customers.
