Benefits of Biodegradable Dog Poop Bags for the Environment

Dog A La Mode fully biodegradable and compostable eco friendly dog poop bags

We all know that picking up after our furry friends is super important for maintaining a clean and sanitary neighbourhood. But did you also know that the type of dog poop bags you use can have a significant impact on the environment? 

Below are six reasons why using biodegradable and compostable dog poop bags is so important for our wonderful green planet.

1. Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

You’ve already probably heard, but when plastic non-biodegradable poop bags break down, they release harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. These greenhouse gas emissions greatly contribute to climate change, leading to a less stable planet that is detrimental to all living life on our sacred Earth.

Fully biodegradable poop bags however, break down into natural organic substances that do not have the same negative impact on climate change and the environment, making them just an incredibly more eco-friendly option.

2. Lessens Waste Production

Can you believe that on average, the UK generates over 30 million tonnes of household waste each year! And around 35% of this waste is attributed towards garden and kitchen waste. 

But with the biodegradable poop bags, over time when the biodegradable material in the poop bags breaks down, there is significantly less waste being created. So this results in a remarkable reduction in wastage in our landfills, allowing less land to be occupied by all the toxic waste humans unfortunately create.

3. Supports Sustainable Practices

By choosing biodegradable and plastic free dog poop bags, you’re contributing and supporting sustainable eco-friendly practices, and you’re really helping the businesses that are prioritising the environment. It may be a small step, but trust us, it’s a highly important step towards a more sustainable future for us all.

So to all who purchase Dog A La Mode’s fully biodegradable and compostable dog poop bags, we’d just like to say a big enormous ‘thank you’ in helping us create a better world. You’re all pawesome!

4. Reduces Plastic Pollution

The traditional plastic dog poop bags can take hundreds of years to decompose. This leads to a remarkable buildup of plastic waste in the landfills and oceans.

On the other hand, biodegradable and eco-friendly bags break down much faster and are less harmful to the environment, thereby significantly reducing the plastic pollution on our beautiful world.

5. Promotes Composting

Biodegradable dog poop bags are usually fully compostable, so they can be composted along with other organic waste, making them a much more sustainable choice of dog poop bags. 

Are you into gardening? Well then good news, the compost can then be used to nourish all your plants, closing the loop on a further eco-friendly process.

6. Biodegradable Bags are Non-Toxic

Biodegradable dog poop bags are made from natural materials, which means they are hygienic and considerably safer for us hoomans and our doggos than traditional plastic dog poop bags.

The traditional plastic materials are made with environmentally damaging chemicals and by-products. Even more, during the breakdown process, they release substances that are terribly harmful to our beautiful world, and of course are a dreadful threat to our environment and all life.

But have no fear, the biodegradable poop bags are here. These biodegradable and compostable poop bags are fully safe for the environment, and don’t release any toxins at all during their breakdown process. The eco-friendly materials of the poop bags are actually safely absorbed by the soil, and cause absolutely no damage to any life.
