As pet-parents, we have many responsibilities regarding our pets. Picking up your dog’s poop is one of those responsibilities. But cleaning your dog’s waste can cause more harm than you can think. Luckily, there is an environmentally friendly dog poop bag alternative.
‘At Mokai, our Compostable & Biodegradable Dog Poop Bags
are made from cornstarch, and decompose in 90 days. Plus, they are compostable and biodegradable.’
The impact of plastic on our planet
Plastic bags are made of polythene plastic. This is a clear lightweight plastic that is used for many things, and it causes pollution from the very manufacturing process up to 150 years after its disposal. And depending on the type of plastic, it can take up to 1000 years to fully decompose, and even then, it’s still present one way or another. This means that even when you throw it away, this plastic remains toxic and constitutes a hazard to the environment.
Besides, plastic bags don’t degrade. They photo-degrade, which means that they break down into smaller pieces that contaminate soils and water. Nowadays, plastic is the largest source of ocean pollution.
A Compostable Dog poop bag alternative
If we want to take care of our planet, plastic is no longer a viable option. Picking up our dog’s waste is our responsibility, but there is a way to do it without damaging the environment.
At MOKAI, we are proud to say that our biodegradable bags are made from cornstarch. They fully decompose in 90 days and are compostable, so you can go to a compost facility or compost at home if you have a bin. Besides, they are leak-proof, 30% thicker than other brands, and tear-resistant.
These new alternatives to plastic bags are much more effective. They reduce pollution, decompose a lot faster than plastic bags, and are earth-friendly.
This planet is our home and it’s our responsibility to take care of it. Our impact on planet earth is devastating, and we need a change now. Reducing our environmental footprint is essential. You don’t have to be the perfect environmentalist to make a change: Every action counts and small changes can make a huge difference. Save our planet one poop at a time!
