Flush Puppies Poop Bags
Flush Puppies™ doodie bags are Certified Compostable in industrial compost facilities that accept pet waste, where they will disintegrate and biodegrade swiftly.* (Sorry, home composters, they’re not suitable for backyard composting!)
Flush Puppies™ are flushable, too. Yes, really… flushable. Made from Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) – a water soluble alternative to regular plastic – Flush Puppies™ are specifically made to be flushed down the toilet along with your pet’s waste. (It’s science – not voodoo!) Unlike regular plastic bags or other so-called “biodegradable” poop bags, Flush Puppies™ actually break down in water.
What you do with the bags is completely up to you — compost ‘em, flush ‘em or trash ‘em. But we call them Flush Puppies™ because we think there’s enough crap going on in the environment without adding more to landfills, where your dog’s “business” (and the bag its wrapped in) will likely mummify and not biodegrade for thousands of years, if ever.
Here’s what the United States Environmental Protection Agency has to say about cleaning up pet waste:
“Pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and excess nutrients in local waters. . . Flushing pet waste is the best disposal method. Leaving pet waste on the ground increases public health risks by allowing harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into the storm drain and eventually into local waterbodies.”
There’s no reason to add to the problem when you have the perfect “waste disposal” system right there in your bathroom. Bag the poop, toss it in the toilet, and flush. Your local wastewater treatment facility will do the rest! Flush Puppies™ are clean and simple, and using your head is always a good idea.
* Check locally, as many communities do not have industrial compost facilities that accept pet waste. Contact your local waste management department to inquire. Also, do not attempt to compost Flush Puppies at home. Home composts do not generate enough heat to kill dangerous pathogens found in pet waste.
