How do you stop the oder from escaping from dog poop bags?
After many years of tying poop bag, we suggest tying the bag like a ballon (not a shoes with two laces). After you have got 'the business' inside & at the bottom of your dog poop bag, run your fingers up the outside of the bag to push any air ouy & grab it about half way up. Now tie the top part into a knot like a ballon and thre you have it, an oder free dog poop bag.
How do I store Oh Crap Compostable Dog Poop Bags?
Although our poop bags are quick to decompose in composting conditions, they have a long shelf life. Oh Crap Dog Poop Bags last for at least 18 months when stored in cool, dry conditions. If your bags have been affected by rain when out on a walk, you have approximately 30 days to use up the rest of the roll.
What’s the difference between biodegradable and compostable?
This can be a confusing topic, which is why we wrote a whole post on it here. Whilst all compostable products are biodegradable, not all biodegradable products are compostable. Biodegradable products can take several months to years to break down and may leave behind smaller microplastics (unseen by the human eye). Compostable dog poo bags leave behind nothing but fertilizer, and in a matter of a few months.
Why are some poop bags handled and some not?
Creating bags with handles creates a lot of waste as you have to cut out of handle part from the middle of the bag, even though it's compostable it's still extra processing, so waste, that is something that we are trying to eliminate. However, we know that there are people who need a handled option, and so we have handled bag packs in rolls of 200.
