A Green Way To Dispose of Dog Poop

"What is the best way to get rid of dog poop, that is economical and enviromentally friendly (green)?"

If you have found yourself lying awake at night, wondering if you are using the right dog poop disposal methods, then you have come to the right place...WE have the answers for you.

Using a biodegradable dog poop bag is the only way to go, as it can take a THOUSAND YEARS for a non biodegradable plastic bag to disintegrate.

So, why is the "flushable" in Biodegradable Flushable Dog Poop Bags important?

Read on...

Flushing Is The Best Way To Dispose of Pet Waste

Many folks will tell you that a little dog poop in your yard is no big deal, it is just fertilizer after all. Hey, it's a natural way to get a greener lawn.

Right?

Well, according to the Enviromental Protection Agency (EPA):

"Flushing pet waste is the best disposal method. Leaving pet waste on the ground increases public health risks by allowing harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into the storm drain and eventually into local waterbodies"

(Click here for the source of this statement-scroll down to "pet waste")

There you have it. Leaving dog poop on the ground is not only not cool...you can potentially allow harmful bacteria and nutrients to contaminate local waterbodies.

But how inconvenient is it to try and pick up the dog poop with toilet paper and carry it to the toilet? If you don't do that, then you are going to put it in a bag, and if you put it in a non biodegradable bag, you just placed something into the enviroment that is going to hang around for roughly one thousand years.

So, the answer to all these problems is...

      Biodegradable dog poop bag is a good idea, there's definitely a niche market for it.

      These are used at Point Isabel - an off leash dog park near me in the SF bay area. They are great.

      Very informative lens. Our complex has a poop stand with poop bags and trash can. Makes it very convenient but this is going two steps beyond :) Great advice!
