At Little Green Dog, we believe in showing our Earth the
same love and care we show our fur kids, and we’re
starting with poop bags.
For years I had been buying big name biodegradable
poop bags, thinking I was being green. But when I started
looking into what ‘biodegradable’ actually meant, I
realised that something didn’t add up and that not all eco
poop bags were created equal!
There’s a great deal of confusion (sometimes intentionally
so) regarding terminology such as compostable,
biodegradable, oxo-degradable, and degradable. Long story
short: most of those ‘biodegradable’ poop bags aren’t
environmentally friendly at all. They're most often just
polyethylene plastic blended with degradable additive. The
additive breaks apart, but tiny bits of microplastic
contaminates usually remain.
It’s a point of pride for us at Little Green Dog that we
have nothing to hide with our 100% home compostable poop
bags. Our plant-derived alternative is made from PLA,
PBAT, cornstarch, and glycerin. That’s it: a fully
biodegradable, 100%-home compostable material. so you
can clean up after your pup without sh*tting on the
