Dog owners – rejoice! There is now a way for you to take your pet for a walk and still be eco-friendly. We all know that cleaning up after your dog is the proper thing to do. The problem is that most dog poop bags are made from plastic, which is not environmentally friendly.
With these biodegradable dog waste bags, you can toss the whole package into your compost bin with no mess and no fuss. We found these baggies from BioBag Dog at OrganicUniverse.com. For just $1, you can get 10 certified biodegradable bags. That’s less than $5 a month for eco-friendly poop bags!
According to the official website, the biobag meets the specifications found in ASTM D 6400-99, and is guaranteed to biodegrade rapidly and safely when composted in a municipal or commercial facility.
Yes, you are required by law to clean up after your dog. But you can at least do so in an eco-friendly manner. When you use biodegradable dog waste bags, you are making a smart choice. Plastic bags can take over 100 years to decompose. By diverting naturally biodegradable waste from entering landfills, food waste, yard waste, paper waste and pet waste can be put to a better use. But, if any of these items are placed in an anaerobic (air-locked) landfill, their natural ability to biodegrade can be severely diminished.
Instead of hassling with separating pet waste from a bag and flushing it down a toilet, why not throw the bag and waste together into a compost bag? These biodegradable dog waste bags are fully compostable, and allow for micro-organisms to break down both the waste and bag. If you don’t want to compost your dog waste, see if you are allowed to put it out with other curbside materials.
BioBag Dog is available in bulk size for groups and community park systems.
