What is an eco-friendly way to get rid of your dog’s poop?

May. 06, 2022

The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws) estimates that pet dogs produce more than 4.4 billion pounds (2 billion liters) of waste each year. When I started my dog waste disposal research, I found many concerned dog parents who were concerned about this issue.

To save you time in your research, I've compiled a list of options for different levels of commitment: from making simple changes, to the most sustainable methods of dog poop disposal.

Eco-friendly dog poop bags

If you're already using bags, switching to eco-friendly poop bags may be the most realistic and least disruptive change to your daily life. It sounds simple, but please note that not all bags are created equal.
Compostable bags are essentially biodegradable dog poop bags that break down in a composting environment, both in industrial piles and at home. They are made from the plant material corn starch and are strong, durable bags designed to mimic the effectiveness of plastic and reduce environmental impact.
These types of bags are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint while keeping your parks, sidewalks and gardens clean. If you would like to learn more about compostable poop bags, please contact us.

Rinse it into toilet

For some, this may be the most surprising pet waste disposal solution - it may also be the most environmentally friendly. According to the EPA, the most sustainable way to dispose of dog poop is to flush it down the toilet. Most municipal water treatment facilities are equipped to treat water containing fecal material, and dog waste is not that different from human waste.

Sustainably sourced toys

What better way to give your pet endless fun knowing that the toy they're wrestling or chewing on comes from sustainable materials? In the past - and to this day - dog toys have been made from plastic, rubber and unethical materials.
Fortunately, there are now a range of toys made from sustainable materials, such as natural rubber, bamboo and hemp. Dogs of all shapes and sizes can enjoy toys that have less impact on the planet. There are many other products such as bowls, beds, food, and even soap.


As pet people who value sustainability, we can't wait to see what the future holds for our pets and the planet.
