Why should I choose compostable dog waste bags over regular ones?

Compostable dog waste bags, especially those certified like ours, break down naturally within a few months, leaving no harmful residues. They're the best choice for the environment and for keeping our oceans free from microplastics.

What's the difference between biodegradable and compostable dog waste bags?

While dog waste bags advertised as biodegradable may sound fantastic. Biodegradable is just a term that describes how something breaks down, but not the material it’s made from or how long it takes to break down.

So many dog poop bags are advertised as eco-friendly and green because they are ‘biodegradable’, are actually just plastic. The plastic called biodegradable may have some chemicals in so it breaks down a little faster than regular plastic - so it can’t be seen by the human eye, but it just breaks down into micro-plastics that end up inside of us and our furry friends.

There are a number of subcategories within the general term of biodegradable. Normally if a bag fits into one of these subcategories, it will be advertised under that category's name, such as compostable vs. the generic ‘biodegradable’ term. So while all compostable bags are biodegradable, not all biodegradable bags are compostable.

Unlike the plastic dog waste bags you get when you buy generic ‘biodegradable’ bags, compostable bags are made from organic material and decompose fully without any harmful residues.

Are the dog waste bags safe for home composting?

Yes, our dog waste bags are certified for both home and commercial composting here in Australia. However, it's essential to ensure your home compost reaches the right conditions to break down the bags effectively. So your compost heap should be warm and wet, the exact conditions the microbes that break down and compost items need. We suggest not putting your pet waste in the compost heap you use to put on veggies, but instead on the general compost you use for the flowers and garden.
