Eco-friendly poop bags appear to be increasing as the importance of helping our planet grows
Apart from the obvious unpleasantries of stepping in dog mess, it’s sometimes good to remember why it’s so important to scoop the poop.
According to the Centers for Disease Control in the United States, there are over three million faecal bacteria in one single dog dropping and some of these bacteria can be transmitted to both humans and other dogs. So, just in case you forgot, this is why responsible dog owners pick up their dog’s dinner.
What’s more, there appears to be a growing number of companies creating eco-friendly compostable bags in a bid to help dog owners help the future of the planet.
This company has compostable poo bags to cater for all dog sizes and owner preferences. The larger bags are star sealed to make them extra strong to prevent any leaks and splits. Every sale donates to one of their three chosen charities. Certified 100% home compostable so we can say goodbye to micro plastics.
