Every Dog Owner Can Make A Difference

Did you know that about 3.6 billion tons of dog waste is not collected annually?

Did you know that 20-30% of all pollutants in waterways is attributed to dog waste?

Did you know that plastics are the fourth highest generated waste in the U.S.?

Yestday was Earth Day, a day designated to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. To celebrate this very special day, I gave away earth-friendly waste bags. PoopBags are made from a combination of corn and other renewable products which meet the highest standards for biodegradability. Specifically, PoopBags meet the ASTM D6400 specification for biodegradability, and comply with biodegradable product claims in all 50 states. Additionally, they contain no chemical additives to enhance their decomposition. The bags will decompose naturally when exposed to the Earth's elements and micro-organisms in the soil.

Kathryn R. from NYC won a year's supply of PoopBags. Why so many you ask? Because every dog owner can make a difference and help sustain our planet.
