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.
