Almost any area that people live, there are regulations in place stating that you must pick up your dog's poop after they do their business. Certain areas where dog walking parks exist will provide dog poop bags for the visitors of the park that are paid for by local tax dollars or donations: Where other areas will require you to bring your own bag with you. The reason behind all of this, of course, is that none of us enjoy stepping on or falling in a pile of feces.
There are a number of people who are more than happy to reuse their plastic shopping bags or purchase waste hamper type bags for this purpose, but there is a much more environmentally responsible option: Biodegradable dog poop bags.
The waste itself is going to be taken care of by Mother Nature; so why enclose it in a bag that will take years to break down? You can visit www.bagscooper.com/shop/dog-poop-bags to know more about plastic bags for dog poop.
The good news is that while you're going to be saving the environment while keeping your parks and community clean: You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars a year to buy biodegradable dog poop bags.
In fact, they cost the same or less than other plastic type bags and are equally strong. Most compostable bags will run you under 10 cents a bag and amazing bulk deals can be found online — if you like the idea of cutting the middleman (store) out of the picture.
Where am I going to get rid of the bag?
Some parks will provide you with a designated receptacle for dog waste. Another option is to throw them in the regular trash or put them in an isolated part of the wilderness (not one that is frequently traveled).
The third option is to simply flush them down the toilet just like you do with your own; since the bag is biodegradable you don't need to worry you're breaking the law, or creating a problem for your local sewage treatment.
