SitStay Blog Why Biodegradable Dog Poop Bags?

Do you own biodegradable dog poop bags?

Let's go over a few reasons why you should consider it.

The problem of dog waste is nothing new. In fact, in many towns and cities have recently passed local ordinances making it mandatory to clean up after your pet. It is for this reason that biodegradable dog poop bags have become important for pet owners, property owners and municipalities alike.

If you are like us, you assumed ALL poop bags were biodegradable in landfills, but surprise, they aren't. You can help improve your support of mother earth by converting to these bags ASAP.

There are many advantages to using these types of bags, and the following are a few of them.

They are simple for pet owners to use / carry

They’re easy to carry and support a large "load" so any dog can use them. If you have more than one pet or anticipate needing more than one bag for a single dog they come in a convenient roll with perforated edges, so they can be torn off the roll in a similar manner to trash bags. For pet owners with a large yard, these bags are perfect for cleaning up after your pets on your own property.

They even have a carrying case available too.

They are convenient for business and government use

Dispensers for biodegradable dog poop bags are perfect for municipalities and businesses. If you maintain a public park where dogs are allowed on leashes, you can mount one or more bag dispensers in strategic locations. Pet owners can simply take a bag when they enter the park and clean up after their dog. This keeps the park clean and hygienic for everyone.

They help keep the environment clean

By using biodegradable dog poop bags, the environment is protected from the nitrogen content in your dog’s waste that depletes the oxygen in the water system. By using dog poop bags, you are protecting the water supply, and therefore the entire ecosystem. Your dog’s waste also contains harmful bacteria that can cause serious sickness in people. Immediate and proper disposal using poop bags helps to prevent the transmission of disease. In addition, because these bags are biodegradable, you are not harming the landfill. Plain, plastic bags do not degrade for hundreds of years.

Whether you are an individual, business or government department, you will find that biodegradable dog poop bags are both useful and valuable to you and your community.
