Something interesting for your Wednesday! Did you know that “20 to 30 percent of all pollutants in waterways is attributed to dog waste”? I didn’t until I received my daily e-newsletter from Daily Kibble, a very informational pet website and e-newsletter. Every weekday there is a new product, fact, or helpful tip for your pet. A couple of weeks ago, the e-newsletter featured Poopbags.com, a company that provides a variety of ecofriendly poop bags. All of the bags are 100% biodegradable which means that they “will decompose at a similar rate as an apple after use.” If you use the biodegradable bags you can simply bury the bags in your backyard (not in a compost pile though) and they become part of the earth’s soil. Or, if they are put into the commercial waste system (an open or turned landfill), they will decompose at the same rate as other biodegradable materials as opposed to remaining inside a plastic bag. Visit the facts page to learn more about reducing you and your dogs waste. Here’s to a greener earth!
