Biodegradable poopy bags - Bio-dewhatable?

Posted on June 27, 2016

Not too long ago we mentioned biodegradable poopy bags to someone and he said, “Bio-dewhatable?”

We had a good laugh at the newly coined word bio-dewhatable but it made us wonder a bit. He is a well-travelled man. An intelligent, business leader. He’s kind and generous and loves his dog. He doesn’t litter and recycles but somehow the idea of biodegradable poopy bags just didn’t occur to him?”

We explained to him, Biodegradable means an item that has the ability to break down, or decompose, back into natural materials in the natural environment without causing harm.  In terms of environmental benefits, a biodegradable material will break down quickly, not take years, leave nothing harmful behind and save landfill space.

Did you know? 

ONE plastic bag takes 1000 years to degrade in a landfill!

Can we say that again?

ONE plastic bag takes 1000 years to degrade in a landfill!

Unlike regular plastic bags often given away at the shops, compostable bags can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soils.

When it comes to our dogs, many, many people grab that free plastic bag they got from the store on their way out the dog for a walk with Fido. It feels like we are re-using the bag right? But think about the millions of dog owners in USA alone - That’s a lot of plastic bags filling our landfills! 

Switching to biodegradable poopy bags are a small way every dog owner can help our planet, without a big effort!

Every biodegradable bag WILL make a difference!

So the next time you're out walking with your dog and you have to bend down and pick up the dirty business, do it with a biodegradable bag and smile knowing you just did something wonderful for the planet! Bet you never knew picking up poop could feel so good!

We like to recommend BioBag Pet Waste Bags, they are made from a resin derived from plants, vegetable oils and compostable polymers and manufactured in the USA.
