What is that?

Why did we choose Miscanthus litter at Kildwick?
And why do we recommend you to do the same?

Miscanthus - also known as Elephant Grass or China Reed Grass - belongs to the genus of sweet grasses. Originally, the plants come from Asia, their relatives are now also known as ornamental plants in native gardens.
Miscanthus has also been successfully cultivated in Germany for several years.

Here are eight unbeatable arguments why we chose this litter:

  • sieved, dedusted and without mold spores, thus less dirt development
  • allergy friendly
  • low CO2 emissions, due to local, ecological, sustainable production
  • high absorbency and odor reduction
  • without residues of pesticides
  • PH-level neutral
  • very good compostability
  • weight can vary by drying up to -5%  
  • recyclable paper packaging

Miscanthus (also known as silvergrass) is the perfect renewable, climate-friendly organic biomass material. When used in your dry separation toilet, miscanthus reliably absorbs moisture, binds odours, and is fully compostable. Owing to its natural neutral pH, it´ll always keeps the contents of your solid waste container in balance so you won´t have to deal with any unpleasant odours or insects attracted by the smell. Instead, your nose will be caressed by the delicate fragrance of hay, evocative of a freshly mown meadow in summer!

Miscanthus is the perfect additive with the feeling of endless summer for your Kildwick composting toilet. What´s more, it´s completely allergy-friendly. Its unique structure prevents shavings from drifting around and spreading around your toilet (as happens with, say, pine needles). This means less work for you - and hence more time for the nicer things in life!
The ecological benefits of bulking material from Kildwick speak for themselves. The miscanthus plant grows extremely quickly and is very robust. It´s frost-resistant, requires barely any fertilizer, and needs hardly any pesticides either. Did you know that a miscanthus field isn´t harvested annually in its entirety? Instead, it´s cultivated as a permanent crop and remains on the field for up to 20 years. Starting in the second year of growth, only the upper part of the plant is harvested. The rest of the plant is left standing, providing a safe, long-term home or a warm overwintering spot for not just insects but also many wild animals.

A 17 liter packet of miscanthus cover material lasts about 14 days when used daily by two people.
In a nutshell, Kildwick miscanthus is ideal for composting toilets! By the way, if you´d like to learn more about different types of bulking material, there´s a blog post which is just what you´re looking for!

Artikel super, Verpackung leider gar nicht

Ich hatte die Streu zusammen mit einem Kildwick Toilettenbausatz bestellt. Beides kam gemeinsam in einem Karton, welcher von außen absolut einwandfrei und unbeschädigt wirkte. Innendrin musste ich nach dem Öffnen leider feststellen, dass die Papiertüte mit der Streu an mehreren Stellen eingerissen war und sich der halbe Inhalt der Tüte im Karton verteilt hatte.

Hallo Simon,

vielen Dank für Deine Bewertung. Ja, es gab zwischenzeitlich eine Charge an Tüten, die sehr dünnes Papier hatten. Mittlerweile ist das Problem aber behoben, denn die neuen Chargen werden wieder in Tüten mit starkem Papier verpackt. Durch Corona war es dem Lieferanten der Tüten leider nicht möglich, Tüten mit diesem starken Papier zu liefern - ihm fehlte schlichtweg das Material. Um jedoch für Euch lieferfähig zu bleiben, sind wir diesen vorübergehenden Kompromiss eingegangen.

Top - genau wie beschrieben.
Vor allen Dingen bröselt das Material nicht wie, z.B. Katzenstreu o.ä. Das Handling von Miscanthus
ist damit sehr einfach und sauber.
