We provide high-quality plastic and compostable dog waste bags that help keep the environment clean. Size, Thickness & Colors can be customized according to client’s specific requirement.
There are many reasons why it is important to use Dog Waste Bags to clean up after your pet besides leaving behind an unpleasant nuisance for others in your community.
Not only is dog waste harmful to the environment, but it is also harmful to humans and in most municipalities, there is some form of ordinance or code that prohibits left behind pet waste.
BENEFITS OF USING DOG WASTE BAGS
Using dog waste bags can prevent the negative impacts on the Environment
Dog waste left on lawns, beaches, trails and sidewalks contain pathogens such as bacteria, parasites and viruses.
When not picked up, it can get washed down and flow directly into streams, lakes and the ocean, creating a deadly environment for fish and other aquatic life, also resulting in widespread fish kills.
Dog waste can also cause closures at beaches, lakes and rivers, and make them too polluted to use for fishing or swimming.
Using dog waste bags can protect human health
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms pet waste can spread parasites including hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella. When infected dog waste comes into contact with your lawn, it will eventually “disappear”, but the parasite eggs can linger for years! When a human or animal comes into contact with that soil through everyday activities like walking barefoot, gardening or playing, they risk infection from those eggs… even years after the waste is gone.
In some places, you have to use Dog Waste Bags
In certain cities, it is illegal to not clean up your pet’s waste when on public or private property not their own.
Studies have shown that about half of all dog owners walk their dogs in public areas. Up to 40% do not pick up after their pets.
While studies show that pet waste is a significant pollution source, surveys have shown that citizens do not believe that it is an important water pollution problem.
With this information, not only is picking up after your dog the right thing to do, but most municipalities have some form of ordinance or code that prohibits left behind pet waste. If the law is violated the owner could be subject to prosecution.
