If you’re a dog owner, you know that picking up after your furry friend is just part of the deal. But have you ever stopped to think about what happens to those little bags of waste once you throw them away?

If you’re using traditional plastic bags, the answer is not pretty. It’s difficult to determine the exact amount of dog poo that goes to landfills, as data on this specific issue is limited. However, According to the (EPA), Americans generate an estimated 4.4 million tons of pet waste each year, and much of this waste is not properly disposed of. When dog poop is thrown away in plastic bags that end up in landfills, it can take many years to decompose and can contribute to the generation of harmful methane gas and other environmental problems.

That’s where compostable dog poo bags come in! These eco-friendly alternatives are made from materials that can break down much faster than plastic, most compostable bags are made from materials such as cornstarch, potato starch, or even bamboo. Not only are they better for the planet, but they can also be added to your home compost bin along with your other organic waste. That means instead of sending your dog’s doo-doo to a landfill, it can be turned into nutrient-rich compost that can help your garden thrive. It also means that they won’t contribute to the mounting problem of plastic pollution that is harming our planet and ocean.
