At Bone-a-fide Dog! we are proud to carry environmentally friendly dog waste bags, BioBag & Flush Puppies Doodie Bags: Here is why we love them!
Flush Puppies doodie bags are Certified Compostable in industrial compost facilities that accept pet waste, where they will disintegrate and biodegrade swiftly. *(Sorry home composters, they’re not suitable for backyard compositing.)
Flush Puppies are flushable, too. Yes, really….flushable. Made from Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA)- a water soluble alternative to regular plastic- Flush Puppies are specially made to be flushed down the toilet along with your pet’s waste. Unlike regular plastic bags for other so-called “biodegradable” poop bags, Flush Puppies Scientifically actually bread down in water!
“What you do with the bags is completely up to you – compost them, flush them, or trash them. But we call them Flush Puppies because we think there’s enough crap going on in the environment without adding more to landfills, where your dog’s “business” (and the bag it’s wrapped in) will likely mummify and not biodegrade for thousands of years, if ever.” Here’s what the United States Environmental Protection Agency has to say about cleaning up pet waste.
“Pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and excess nutrients in local waters…..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 in to the storm drain and eventually into local waterbodies.”
There’s no reason to add to the problem when you have the perfect “waste disposal” system right there in your bathroom. Bag the poop, toss it in the toilet, and flush. Your local wastewater treatment facility will do the rest! Flush Puppies doodie bags are clean and simple, and a smart choice.
BioBag is a world leader in providing bags and films for the collection of organic waste for the purpose of composting. Unlike regular plastic, BioBags can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soils. Because they use starches from renewable crops, the bags can be readily composted along with organic waste in municipal composting facilities.
BioBags are a great alternative to regular polyethylene plastic bags. They are made from a resin derived from plants, vegetable oils and compostable polymers. They are manufactured in the USA, in California with resin sourced from Italy. *, as there is no “compostable resin” supplied in North America that can guarantee a resin that is based on GMO Free crops.
BioBag dog waste bags come in standard and large size (as well as on a core for dispensers) and are black to hide the contents after use. There are many communities and dog parks successfully composting their dog waste by using BioBags.
Little steps really doo make a BIG difference-
