Eco care bamboo cat litter is a 100% biodegradable, light weight litter made exclusively from naturally organically-gown bamboo. The biodegradable bamboo fiber absorbs moisture up to 5 times more than traditional clay litters and clumps instantly upon contacting fluid. Its natural fiber protects against ammonia, urine and fecal odors. It's all natural and organic ingredients and contains no chemical additives or dyes. It is safe for all cats and kittens.

I've been using this litter for several weeks now. I'm surprised there is only one review at this time, because it's a great product. With 4 cats, and having owned cats for decades, I'm always on the lookout for improved litter cleaning because none I've tried is perfect. Reviews for all products vary greatly. Here is my evaluation and reasoning:
1. Eco-friendliness. I want a sustainable product. I don't care much about organic, since that doesn't really mean much and isn't regulated. However, at this time, I believe that bamboo is a more renewable resource than clay or wood-based products. (I use bamboo toilet tissue and paper towels when I can get them).
2. Cat acceptance. My kitties will go in very unacceptable places if they don't like their litter. All four seem to accept this well.
3. Tracking. All litter tracks, so the easier it is to sweep up, the more I like it. This gets 5 stars for easy sweeping. Yay. (I haven't tried a litter mat with it, since my cats pee on mats.)
4. Scoopability/clumping. Clumping is modest. I use a disposable cardboard litter box with this product. It clumps in the corners (where my cats pee) near the bottom, making a solid chunk of disintegrated pellets. You have to dig it up from the box with the edge of the scoop. Deeper litter makes it easier to scoop out the urine clumps. It's not as distinct a clump as with the clumping clay, but I'll give that up for less dust. You do need a scoop that accommodates pellets. Scoopers with smaller openings for clay will mean more waste because you'll toss more clean litter with each scoop. I think it's a little too big for the LUUP system I use outside.
5. Dust. There is a small amount straight out of the bag. I have lung issues, but this products works fine for me since it does not seem to get airborne as readily as others.
6. Smell. I have to rely on my wife for the smell factor, as I have little sense of smell, and she is very sensitive to it. This seems to be pretty acceptable if we scoop twice a day. Cat poop is cat poop, so scooping is the only remedy for that with all litters. The ammonia seems much less noticeable if you make sure to lift out the lumps of urine on a regular basis.
My current litter set-up: I give my cats variety. 4 cats. 6 boxes. 3 in, 3 out in a fenced catitat. Scoop twice a day when we are good. Toss the box completely about 2 weeks.
Inside: 2 have EcoCare pellets in cardboard, disposable litter boxes. 1 has coconut (fine-grain) litter in top-entrance box. Cats seem to prefer the bamboo EcoCare.
Outside in catitat: 1 LUUP, 1 top loading, and 1 standard, side entrance, covered little box. All clumping clay. They prefer the LUUP box. Have not switched to bamboo pellets out there yet because of the expense of changing boxes.
I'd love to buy this in bulk to afford using it for all the boxes.
======== July 2018 UPDATE =========
After 6 months, I'm really happy with this litter. I'm using the type for shorthair kitties. I rate it high for smell, easy sweep-up, and kitty acceptance. We've settled on one box with EcoCare and one box with Hartz Recycled Paper litter. They are used equally by the cats. The smell factor in the house is massively improved, and the kitties have stopped peeing in strange corners. And this is with one cat on long-term prednisolone, which causes PU/PD (drinking and urinating a lot). We've gotten in the habit of scooping clumps twice a day and changing out the boxes every 3-4 weeks. The cats seem happier, and so are we, with this product.
