Alert! Here Comes Some Science.
We also encourage people to properly dispose of their pet waste.
Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags should never be disposed of in a home composter. A big part of that is your bag now contains pet waste, which includes harmful bacteria that should not be put in your home composter. Don’t do it!
You can check your area to find an industrial compost facility capable of properly breaking down the bag and it's contents into usable compost.
We’d be happy if you just threw the poop in a garbage can so it can find it's way to a landfill. The poop won’t pollute the water. And the trash will go where trash should go. But, it’s not all perfect. In a landfill, garbage is stored in an anaerobic environment – meaning there is no air. It’s difficult for anything to compost in that environment – whether it’s a banana peel or a compostable bag – it’s just not going to break down fast.
If all the waste in the world found its way to landfills, we wouldn’t have so many micro plastic issues. So, we have picked a technology that when not in a landfill, will break down… and return to the earth.
