Not everything called biodegradable can be trusted. Biodegradable means that an item can be broken down into increasingly smaller pieces by bacteria, fungi or microbes to be reabsorbed by the surrounding environment. Basically anything, including plastic, can be called biodegradable, because eventually it will break down. It could just take a very, very long time. How crazy is this?! And how easy isn’t it to mislead consumers by calling stuff leaving microplastics behind biodegradable?
Many biodegradable poop bags on the market contribute to increased Co2 emissions and leave microplastics behind in nature. They are often made from sugar canes or recycled plastic. Oil is then used to produce the plastic and the final product is often transported across continents.
We know... it’s a shitty story! But we want to change the narrative.
Petgood poop bags are therefore made from corn and other plant-based materials, making them 100% compostable and biodegradable. They are produced in the EU with 100% renewable energy to further minimize our poop-print.
Biodegradable poop bags made from recycled plastic often take around 36 months or more to break down. Our poop bags are broken down in 6 months on land, and 2 years in the sea, averaging less than 12 months.
