If you’re a dog owner,  reducing your pup’s carbon pawprint isn’t as easy as you’d think.

Consider dog poop bags if you will.

What are they made of? Plastic.

We spend a lot of time around here talking about all kinds of ways to rid your life of plastic bags (and bottles), so why not let rid your pets’ lives of them as well?



Plastic bags have only been around for about 50 years, so we’re not entirely sure how long they take to break down in a landfill, but all tests point to somewhere between 500-1,000 years.

So why are we throwing away our dogs’ poop in them?

Sure, you could leave it where it fell while you and Fido are out on a walk or at the dog park, but that’s just plain poor pet etiquette.
