I use the new natural variety from arm & hammer. It actually smells good. It is scoopable and made from corn. But it actaully smells good! I know I just said that, but I still can't get over it, even 6 mos later. Even after a big poop, they scratch up the litter, and it smells good. It is not as expensive as other natural litter. And it's available at the regular stores.
If you are looking at it in a strictly environmental sense, clay mining is very dirty business as is turning it into litter. Not to mention all the space in landfills that is filled up b/c of our cats. That's why we choose one made from a renewable source, something that would normally just be offal from another product. Corn cobs is a great example. There is also things like newspaper, wheat, & pine. But I find that the corn is the best for absorbtion, smell, & clumping.
