Enviro-Poop!biodegradable poop bags for the waste we are significantly reducing the amount of regular plastic bags that take hundreds of years to break down. You can also flush the poop down the toilet however, never flush the litter down the drain - only the scooped poop!! Another option is to compost the waste by burying it in the backyard or a flower bed. NEVER EVER compost dog or cat waste in your vegetable garden (or anywhere remotely close to it) as the feces contain a lot of very harmful bacteria such as e-coli. This can be very dangerous, if not fatal, to humans if consumed.
Another product we really like are these Simple Solutions Natural Biodegradable Puppy Training Pads - perfect for your new little fuzzy friend or for your senior pets!
