At Little Green Dog, we believe in showing our Earth
the same love and care we show our fur kids, and we’re
starting with poop bags.
For years I had been buying big name
biodegradable poop bags, thinking I was being green.
But when I started looking into what ‘biodegradable’
actually meant, I realised that something didn’t add
up and that not all eco poop bags were created
There’s a great deal of confusion (sometimes
intentionally so) regarding terminology such as
compostable, biodegradable, oxo-degradable, and
degradable. Long story short: most of those
‘biodegradable’ poop bags aren’t environmentally
friendly at all. They're most often just polyethylene
plastic blended with degradable additive. The additive
breaks apart, but tiny bits of microplastic
contaminates usually remain.
It’s a point of pride for us at Little Green Dog that
we have nothing to hide with our 100% home compostable
poop bags. Our plant-derived alternative is made from
PLA, PBAT, cornstarch, and glycerin. That’s it: a
fully biodegradable, 100%-home compostable
material. so you can clean up after your pup
without sh*tting on the environment. Woof.
