The Benefits

Our products are an effortless, cost-effective alternative to traditional animal beddings.

1. HEalth & Wellness

Our dust-extracted and heat-treated straw minimizes exposure to harmful bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and plant material. It creates a comfortable and clean environment for your animals and a safe workspace for all. The health and wellbeing of you and your animals are our to priority.

2. High Absorbency

Our dust-extracted straw is significantly more absorbent than traditional straw or wood shavings. It will reduce the presence of ammonia, decrease barn odor, and create a cleaner work environment.

3. Easily Compostable

Our dust-extracted straw is 100% biodegradable and composts significantly faster than traditional animal bedding. It is carbon neutral, sustainable, and quickly breaks down into a natural organic fertilizer.
