Letting your dog defecate and move on without picking it up and disposing of it properly isn’t just discourteous to others. It’s irresponsible, dangerous to people and other animals, and contaminates the environment. The easy and cost-effective solution is pet poop bags.

The bags are a clean and sanitary solution to the problem of dog waste. They’re available in rolls like ordinary trash bags and are scented to aid in keeping odors contained. The handles tie for convenience, easy disposal and they’re leakproof. The bags are specifically designed for sanitary collection and disposal of dog waste.

One of the most common misconceptions about dog waste is that it will quickly break down, disperse, and just wash away. Nothing could be further from the truth. A single pile of dog waste can take up to 12 months to fully break down.

Since dogs tend to return to the same place to relieve themselves, if you don’t pick up the waste, you’re just building a pile of trouble. There are approximately 83 million household dogs in the U.S. that produce about 10.6 million tons of waste each year.

An additional problem is the contamination that dog feces contribute to the environment when the feces aren’t picked up. When it rains, the water sluices over the feces. That water finds its way into every type of waterway. Studies have shown that up to 30 percent of the bacteria found in watersheds originates with pet waste.

It’s particularly problematic in climates that receive a significant amount of rainfall such as South Florida. Cities across the U.S. are experiencing difficulties with elevated bacteria from dog waste in their waterways, leading to beaches and popular fishing locations being closed.

Equally important is the spread of disease without pet poop bags to collect dog feces. The waste contains a variety of bacteria and parasites that can infect people, other pets, and even wildlife. The bacteria and parasites are spread by insects and can remain in the soil for years. Pet waste can also result in excessive algae growth.

Pet poop bags are a convenient and cost-effective way for you to clean up pet waste and be courteous to others in the neighborhood. The bags enable you to prevent the spread of bacteria, parasites, and help keep soil and waterways clean.
