Pet Waste Stations
DISCLAIMER: Per the FTC Green Guidelines, if your community uses a sanitary landfill or incineration to dispose of trash, then NO BAG -- oxo-biodegradable, biodegradable, compostable, corn based or even paper, will have any environmental benefit.
Pet waste stations usually come with a certain amount ofwaste can liners for the waste can. Frequently however, once a park or property runs out of the initial supply of liners
Using a non-degradable can liner in your pet waste station defeats the purpose of maintaining an earth-friendly system.
Oxo-biodegradable dog waste bags dispensed from your pet waste station are better for the environment than standard plastic bags. They degrade over time and won’t pollute the environment for years to come.
If pet waste station users are placing their dog’s waste in an oxo-biodegradable dog waste bag and then in a non-degradable can liner, the end result defeats the whole purpose of using an earth-friendly system. The oxo-biodegradable bags and the dog waste will remain inside of the non-degradable plastic liner bags for years to come instead of degrading harmlessly over one to two years.
Furthermore, the cost difference between a standard plastic bag and an oxo-biodegradable plastic bag for your pet waste station is minimal. If you’re paying for oxo-biodegradable dog waste bags, it makes sense to maintain your investment in the environment with oxo-biodegradable waste can liners.
