17. NATUSAN LITTER PRODUCT COMPARISON CLAIMS
17.1 All Natusan product comparison claims, including claims relating to weight, waste, price and odour, have been made based on comparisons with other litters and are based on our internal studies. For any questions regarding product comparison claims, please see our FAQ section or contact out Customer Care team who will be able to provide further details of the comparison claims.
"Natusan produces 65% less waste". Claim based on a study where we compared Natusan clumping litter to 3 other high performance, premium non-clumping litter. Last comparison conducted in August 2020.
"Save up to £120 a year by switching to Natusan". Claim based on the average monthly consumption of Natusan clumping litter vs. non-clumping premium litter
"Natusan is 60% lighter than mineral based clumping litters". Natusan litter has a density of 330-480 grams per litre while a mineral-based clumping litter has a density of approx. 1kg per litre. Per kg, this means Natusan is approx. 60% lighter if we take the average density of 405 grams per litre.
"Spend 75% less time cleaning with Natusan litter". Claim based on needed to do a full tray change once a month with Natusan vs. a weekly change for non-clumping litters.
"40,000kg of waste reduced so far". Based on waste savings of 65% by switching to Natusan litter (see above for information on 65% claim)
"An estimated 2 million tons of cat litter goes to landfill every year in the UK". Based on calculations from figures extracted from 2018 Paw Report, Nielsen Consumer Panel July 2020 and 2019 Department of Environment Food & Rural Affairs as of June 2020
