Additional Facts About 4 Paw Rated Bags

  • There are no chemical additives to enhance decomposition. The bags degrade naturally when exposed to the earth’s elements and micro-organisms in the soil
  • PoopBags “Breathe” – allowing heat and moisture to escape or evaporate. This feature reduces bacterial build-up of collected waste, thus reducing odor
  • Will decompose in a commercial composting environment between 60 and 90 days after use. PoopBags.com strongly urges consumers NOT to place feces-filled bags into home composting systems or green bins as this could lead to E.coli contamination. Basically, dogs eat meat
  • Will decompose in a natural setting at an extended rate comparable to other naturally compostable materials, such as paper, leaves and food waste
  • If the poop bags are placed in an “open” or “turned” landfill they will decompose at a rate similar to other biodegradable/compostable materials in the same setting. If the landfill is anaerobic/locked, no biodegradable/compostable products will degrade – even banana peels
  • Facts About Dog Waste, Consequences of Using Regular Plastic Bags, and Why You Should Use PoopBags

    • It is estimated that dog owners do not collect over 4 million tons of dog waste annually
    • 20-30% of all pollutants in waterways attributed to dog waste: Pollutants originating from rainwater run-off via sewer systems, and dogs pooping near watersheds or beaches. Overall, it is believed dog waste is third or fourth on the list of contributors to bacteria in contaminated waters
    • Plastics are the fourth highest generated waste in the U.S., originate from petroleum which is non-renewable, do not biodegrade, and take thousands of years to break down. Paper, yard trimmings, and food scraps are the top three generated. However, all of them come from renewable resources
    • Plastics are the least recycled with a 6.9% recovery rate. In 2006, the U.S. produced 29.5 million tons of plastic and only recycled 2.04 million tons
    • Various plastic bag manufacturers use the term “biodegradability” loosely and lightly, but not PoopBags. The ASTM specifications that PoopBags adhere to requires that the material is fully tested to ensure that it will degrade in a timely manner, and that no large plastic fragments should remain
    • Bag manufacturers – who claim their bags are biodegradable or compostable but do not meet the ASTM specifications - are misleading consumers and are acting negligently towards the environment
    • California’s law, SB 1749, maintains that bags should meet the ASTM D6400 specification for compostable product claims. Several other states are also instituting policies like California. Our 4 paw rated bags proudly meet the ASTM D6400standard
