Rated 5 out of 5 by ProgtheFrog Perfect for gerbils and allergies
Solved my gerbils' allergy problems. On aspen, they all had red noses, sores and breathing issues. Switched them to this bedding and they're all cured. This is also ideal for gerbils because they produce very little waste (being desert creatures), so high absorbancy isn't required (though you can add a layer of other bedding under this). I have 3 gerbils and only need to change the bedding once every month or two; you can add a porcelain cup/potty to the cage to reduce how often you need to change the bedding as well. They love to carry the crinkles in their mouth and chew them into bits. If this bedding gets kicked out onto the floor, you can just pick up the crinkles and toss them back into the cage (aspen was SO messy compared to this). Best bedding for gerbils imo and the blue color is very nice to look at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hikaru Awesome for rats!
My 6 rats love this bedding because it molds into nests and tunnels. Also it is dust free so that helps with sensitive respiratory systems.
The down side is that it is messy and gets everywhere! It is ok at absorbing odor, but that is with getting changed out every few days.
I don't use this as an everyday bedding I use fabric lining the shelves in my DCN, but I like to get a box and put a few handfuls into it. My rats really enjoy that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ErinP I love this bedding when combined with another. But I wouldn't recommend as the sole bedding. It gets messy VERY fast. It not very good with absorbing odor or urine. It's hard to clean when it gets wet. And it's pretty expensive. I use it for my four mice. And they LOVE it. But I put a laying of Sun Seed Fresh World Bedding down first (with is a GREAT product). And with the combination of the two litters it's great. My mice love being able to digging around in the Eco Bedding and make tunnels and beds out of it. And it goes a long way. I only need a hand full or two to put in their cage. Because it expands very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RatLOVER21 BEST BEDDING EVER FOR RATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this bedding yesterday for my two rats Reggie and Ralph. They LOVE it!!!! I have allergies and so does Ralph. It is the best bedding I have found! I had Carefresh Ultra and both the rats and I kept sneezing. With this bedding we haven't sneezed at all!!! Please get this bedding if you have rats or any other animals!!! It is MUCH MUCH cheaper than any of the other Carefreshes or any other beddings besides aspen which I didn't like at all because it had a weird smell and didn't absorb very well at ALL!!!!! I got the brown normal ECO Bedding and it is wonderful!
PROS: hyper-allergenic, rats love to burrow in it, comes in different colors, and safe for the environment
