Go Green With Your Pet For Earth Day

Dogs teach us to appreciate the natural things in life. A river to splash in, a field of grass to roll in, and a tree to sniff are all it takes to make their tail wag.

Help keep your local natural wonders safe and clean for all to enjoy by making simple changes to your daily dog walk.

How To “Go Green” On Dog Walks

As you use fewer plastic bags when out shopping, you may be wondering if it’s better to skip the plastic and let your dog’s poop become a part of nature, rather than picking it up when you’re out on walks.

The truth is, your dog’s poop is detrimental to your local waterways.

Even if your dog is perfectly healthy, they shed harmful bacteria in their poop. When it rains, that bacteria can wash into local waterways by the way of storm drains, contaminating local lakes, streams, and rivers, making them unsafe for people and animals.

What’s more, as dog poop decomposes, it releases nutrients that feed overgrowth of green algae and weeds. The overabundance of algae consumes oxygen, essentially suffocating the fish that live in your local waters

So, whenever you take your dog for a walk, make sure you leave everything as you found it, taking any garbage – and dog poop – with you and disposing of it in the trash.

Eco-Friendly Dog Poop Bags

Rather than using plastic shopping bags, which take 10-20 years to decompose, switch to degradable poop bags. Degradable poop bags can also be used to dispose of cat litter.

Poopy Packs are biodegradable poop bags that come in fun designs so you and your pets can celebrate Earth Day in style.

Poopy Packs come in a pack of 8 rolls with 20 bags per roll for a total of 160 bags, a 3-to-6-month supply of degradable poop bags for your pet.

The Poopy Packs poop bags are also great for cleaning out your cat’s litter box!

    These will be great for my lab and I have 3 indoor Siamese kitties. I will admit that I use the grocery plastic bags for cat litter. I never thought to use them for kitties.
    My neighbor ran out of poo bags and I had some to share. Please Please Please help each other stay healthy. Shop for your friends and neighbors that can’t get out or have underlying medical issues. All of us Fur kid parents need to ban together and stay safe. XOXO 🐾
