What makes Oh Crap's dog poop bags eco-friendly?

Our bags are crafted from cornstarch, a renewable and sustainable resource. Unlike traditional plastic bags derived from fossil fuels and contributing to pollution, our bags are designed to break down in composting environments. This means they return to the earth without leaving behind any harmful residues. Our commitment to eco-friendliness extends to every aspect of our bags, ensuring they are as kind to the planet as they are effective at handling your dog's waste.

What makes Oh Crap's eco-friendly dog poop bags different from regular plastic bags?

Our bags are a leap forward in environmental responsibility. Unlike regular plastic bags that linger in landfills and oceans, our eco-friendly bags break down harmlessly, supporting a cleaner, greener planet. Plus, they're just as convenient and reliable as their plastic counterparts, if not more!

Are eco-friendly dog poop bags really better for the environment?

Absolutely! Eco-friendly dog poop bags, like ours, play a crucial role in reducing plastic waste. Traditional plastic & biodegradable poo bags can take hundreds of years to decompose, releasing harmful microplastics into the environment.

Our eco-friendly bags, on the other hand, decompose within months under the right conditions, significantly reducing their environmental impact. By choosing eco-friendly bags, you're helping to protect wildlife, reduce pollution, and promote a healthier planet.

Are biodegradable dog poop bags eco-friendly?

The term 'biodegradable' might sound eco-friendly, but it's a bit of a tricky one. While biodegradable dog poop bags are marketed as being good for the environment due to their ability to break down, the reality is a bit more complex. The term 'biodegradable' simply means that a material will decompose over time, which can be misleading. This includes plastic, which technically is biodegradable but can take hundreds of years to break down, hardly making it eco-friendly.

In contrast, 'compostable' is a term with strict government standards. Here in Australia, compostable materials must legally break into organic matter within 180 days to be certified compostable, making them a sustainable and earth-friendly option. It's important to note that while all compostable materials are biodegradable, not all biodegradable materials are compostable. This distinction is crucial for understanding what truly constitutes an eco-friendly product.

At Oh Crap, we're committed to transparency and sustainability, which is why we only sell eco-friendly compostable dog poop bags. Our bags meet the Australian standards AS 5810 for home composting and AS 4736 for commercial composting, ensuring they're eco-friendly. So, when you choose our bags, you're making a genuinely good choice for the planet.
