At Jewett Cameron, we are committed to the stewardship of our environment. Our ZERO PLASTIC™ brand is the ultimate expression of that goal. The mission of ZERO PLASTIC™ is to eliminate micro plastics from the environment. Our first product, Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags, helps make that goal a reality.

Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags meet the standards of ASTM D6400. That means they meet the standard for composability. The resin we use in the bag breaks down entirely, leaving no harmful residues. 

The Bag That Returns To The Earth™

 

True conservation means actually using less.  Wherever possible, our Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags do not include an inner cardboard roll.

If we don’t need it, we won’t use it.

Developing Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags created another way we could help the environment. Over 30% of ground water contamination comes from dog waste. That’s huge! Pick up the poop! Make sure you’re using our Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags.

 

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 should not be put in home composter. Don’t do it!

You can send them to commercial composters.  The bag will break down along with the pet waste.

 

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… to nothing. Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags will truly returning to the earth.

We are always keeping our eyes open for new and better solutions to eliminate micro plastics, and help preserve our environment. Lucky Dog® ZERO PLASTIC™ poop bags are just the beginning.
