Biodegradable Pet Products

 

 

Instead of plastic, use biodegradable bags and liners for your pet dogs and cats.

Plastic shopping bags used for dog and cat waste is a good way to recycle plastic that is going to help fill up the landfill. But that one plastic bag is going to take anywhere from 400 to 1000 years to disintegrate. And that is in the open air where water, light and oxygen can reach it and it's a danger to wildlife. In a landfill......... that same plastic bag will last forever.

Paper bags degrade in as little as a month in the open environment but it takes 14 million trees to produce the 10 billion paper bags used by American consumers in just one year.

Until reusable bags replace the plastic bag, the best way to clean up after your pet is to use a biodegradable plastic which returns to the environment naturally.
