As most of us live in metropolitan areas and have to pick up our dogs poo, we often use the local store plastic bag or a dog bag that says it’s “biodegradable”. Since most of you know these plastic grocery store bags aren’t good for our landfills and mother nature, you are most likely starting to use recyclable bags from your local super market. As this becomes more and more popular, plastic bags will become a thing of the past, at least I hope! After searching for biodegradable dog poo bags for some time, we came across a company called Biobag, and they are legit. The Biobags compost in 10-45 days in a regular compost pile, which is great for feedings plants and other flowers. Although this could be used for your vegetable garden to enrich the soil, we have not been able to cross that barrier put putting the dog waste with our cucumbers. Biobags do come at a premium price which can be hard to swallow for some, but they are a much better option to other bags out there that claim they are biodegradable( plastic grocery store bags are biodegradable too, after 50 years!) So next time you’re looking to make a difference, be sure to keep BioBags in mind. For more information on these BioBags as well as others, please visit www.amazon.com/biobag.
