GreenPolly dog poop bags are made of 80-90% post-consumer recycled plastic and 10-20% plastic made from sugarcane. If your dog’s doo is headed for landfill this is a good bag to use. Compostable bags sound green, but pet waste cannot be added to compost. The bag and the waste will decompose in landfill and emit methane which is a potent greenhouse gas.
GreenPolly bags use recycled plastic which is always preferable to virgin plastic. It contributes to a recycle economy and has a much smaller carbon footprint than virgin plastic. The bags won’t decompose in landfill and emit methane. That being said, they pose all the environmental hazards of any plastic bag and should be disposed of responsibly.
