“Dogs are angels full of poop.” ― Oliver Gaspirtz
When you decide to keep a pet, you need to take into consideration many factors, one of them being your pet’s daily bathroom needs. Adult dogs usually go 2-3 times a day. But puppies are a shitting machine and when you live in an area where dog poop is frowned upon, you have no choice but to clean up after your pooch. In such cases, bio-degradable dog poop bags are your savior.
Many gated societies have made it mandatory to pick up and dispose of your pet’s waste properly. Nobody enjoys walking on a littered path and have the misfortune of stepping on poop. This is a common misconception that dog waste is a fertilizer but it actually contains pathogens and there is always a danger of other animals accidentally licking it. So being a responsible pet pawrent, you also know it’s the neighbourly thing to do. You help protect mother nature while set up a comfortable environment for your pet and neighbours.

Why Bio-Degradable Dog Poop Bags?
Here are some of the reasons why these bio-degradable dog poop bags are a boon!
The need for pet care and sanitation got me to research some effective and eco-friendly ways to dispose of the ‘doodie’. Now, most of us pick up our pet’s poop but no matter how you look at it, it’s not a pleasant task. I started looking for options which would make the process easier and less stinkier and that’s when I came across these disposable dog poop bags.
Approximately 500 million plastic poop bags are used annually throughout the world and one plastic bag can take over 500 years to degrade in a landfill. (Source: Bioplastics News)
This is where biodegradable poop bags come in. They make these bags out of a resin derived from plants, vegetable oils and compostable polymers which break down completely in the right conditions.
No more smelly poop pickers as these bags are thick enough to contain the waste and its lovely fragrance. They are also durable, water resistant and come with a bag dispenser that you can easily attach to your dog’s leash, harness or collar while taking him for a walk. Every set contains 1 dispenser and 3 rolls with 15 bags each. Simply open the dispenser and put one roll inside.
You can see that it’s very easy to pull the bags out and open them.
