Reduce your pet’s carbon footprint with Pogi’s eco-friendly pee pads. They come in three sizes: medium, large, and extra large.
The top layer is made from bamboo with an ultra-absorbent layer under it, made from certified sustainable pine. According to Pogi’s, the leak-proof protective under layer is a “bio-hybrid” combination of plastic and organic material. They don’t disclose what is in this “bio-hybrid” layer, but state that it is not compostable or biodegradable. This is a plus since soiled pads cannot be put in home or industrial compost due to the toxicity of the waste. They are most likely tossed into garbage that ends up in landfill. Compostable or biodegradable plastics decompose slowly in landfills and emit methane which is a potent greenhouse gas. So this “bio-hybrid” is an acceptable solution.
Pogi’s have a slight honey scent that’s appealing to dogs. So these work well in crates, too. My dog lounges on her pad when it’s clean.
If you’re looking for the most earth-friendly solution consider washable pee pads. I use those at home and Pogi’s when I travel with my pup.
We rate these 4 clean planets because of the lack of clarity around the bio-hybrid plastic.
Planet-friendly rating: 4
