It’s the downside of having a dog. We go through bags like crazy cleaning up after him on walks, and it’s painful to see all that plastic build up in the garbage can at the end of the week. Flush Puppies claim to have a better solution though!
According to their site:
Flush Puppies doodie bags are 100% biodegradable and flushable. Yes, really… flushable. Made from Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) – a water soluble, eco-friendly, “green” alternative to plastic – Flush Puppies are specifically made to dispose of doggie doodie down the toilet. (It’s science, people – not voodoo!) Unlike plastic bags or other “biodegradable” bags, Flush Puppies actually biodegrade in water and in landfills.
What you do with the bags is completely up to you — trash ‘em or flush ‘em. But we call ‘em Flush Puppies because we think there’s enough crap going on in the environment without adding more to landfills, where your dog’s “business” will likely mummify and may not decompose at all.
