Once these poop bags find their way into landfills, they’re faced with an anaerobic environment – one that lacks oxygen. Buried beneath layers of compacted soil, these bags are left to decompose in darkness, with no end in sight.

So, as conscientious consumers, how do we make the right choice when it comes to poop bags?

Let’s explore the options:

Oxo-degradable: While these bags contain an additive meant to facilitate degradation in open-air environments, the lack of oxygen in landfills renders them virtually indestructible. Despite their initial promise, oxo-degradable bags contribute to the growing problem of plastic pollution, persisting in our environment for hundreds of years.

Compostable: Derived from renewable resources like corn and sugarcane, compostable bags seem like an eco-friendly choice. However, their biodegradability relies on specific conditions found in commercial composting facilities. Unfortunately, most backyard compost piles and municipal facilities don’t accept pet waste, limiting the effectiveness of compostable bags as a sustainable solution.

Flushable: While EPA suggests flushing pet waste, flushing bags can wreak havoc on pipes and water treatment facilities, as they don’t break down quickly. Not to mention, flushing pet waste can introduce harmful bacteria and parasites into our waterways, posing risks to human and environmental health.

Landfill Biodegradable: Introducing our solution – PetPro Biodegradable Poop Bags. Crafted from plastic and a proprietary additive, these bags biodegrade anywhere, thanks to the hungry microorganisms present in landfill environments. Independent lab tests authenticate their biodegradability, making them a sustainable choice for conscientious pet owners.
