Wondering what the best way to dispose of dog poop bags is? Here are your options.
If you have a dog and go for walks often, you may have considered the amount of `dog waste bags you use on a regular basis. If you have decided to use a plant-based pet waste bag, you may have questions about how to properly dispose of them and if they are in fact better for the environment.
What Are Plant-Based Waste Bags?
Plant-waste bags are bags made from Biodegradable or compostable polymers, which is material that breaks down over time. These are made of a natural material that can go back into the environment without causing harm.
Eco-friendly bags can be made from varying materials derived from plants or paper.
How to Dispose of Dog Poop Bags
If you have a plant-based dog waste bag, there are a few solutions for disposal.
Throw Them Away
Like any other biodegradable material, you can throw these bags in the trash. This is not the most ideal disposal method, but these bags will still break down, unlike non-biodegradable products. You do not want to recycle these as they can ruin the recycling process.
Plastic-based dog waste bags can take hundreds of years to break down in a landfill, plant-based waste bags however, can breakdown naturally much more quickly.
Compost at Home
If you have a compost pile, bin, or electric pet waste composter, you can add plant-based bags to it. If you choose to do this, you must ensure the garden you use this compost in is not growing food for consumption. This is because there are harmful bacteria that grow in dog waste. Ideally, composted pet waste bags would be used in a flower bed.
