Green Tip #31: Green Dog Waste Bags

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking our dog for a good romp in a nearby park. She got to meet lots of people and new dogs and best of all run around in a big open field. This time of year this park is used for dog walkers, cross country skiers, snowshoers, joggers, etc. so when our dog has to do her business I am sure to always have green dog waste bags (biodegradable) on hand. I buy ours in packages of 48 at the dollar store for $1.00. These green dog waste bags are biodegradable and just the right size. I know some folks use grocery bags but these actually cost more (for places where you have to pay $0.10 per bag like where we live) and use a lot more plastic not to mention most commonly used plastic bags out there aren’t biodegradable. Now I do realize that these green dog waste bags need sun to biodegrade but I figure as the garbage gets turned up at the dump, chances are some sunshine will hit it at some point and get the process moving along.
