Green Pups Biodegradable Poo Pick Up Bags
Introducing GREEN PUPS, environmentally conscious poo pick up bags, made with natural Lignin, these plant-based poo pick-up bags decompose in months vs. years compared to regular plastic bags
The leader in pet poo pick-up, Bags on Board, has launched GREEN PUPS™, a line of environmentally-conscious poo pick-up bags made with natural lignin, a renewable resource left over from the paper making industry. Until now, eco-friendly pet owners have been limited to using corn-based bags that require water and energy to grow and harvest the needed corn, resulting in higher costs and not so environmentally-friendly side effects. The company has signed an industry-exclusive agreement with Dallas-based cycleWood Solutions to produce GREEN PUPS, which will be manufactured using cycleWood’s award-winningXylomer™ Technology.
Features and Benefits
- GREEN PUPS poo pick-up bags are made using cycleWood Solutions’ patented technology, Xylomer™ – a bio-resin material made with natural, plant-based lignin which breaks down faster than regular plastic.
- Because GREEN PUPS uses the surplus lignin from paper mills, less lignin needs to be burned or disposed of as part of making paper, providing a secondary benefit to the environment.
- GREEN PUPS are an sustainable alternative to regular poo pick-up bags made from fossil fuel plastics.
- GREEN PUPS contains no soil-contaminating additives and do not require the resources needed to grow and harvest corn.
- GREEN PUPS packaging is made from recycled paper.
- Refill rolls are compatible with all Bags on Board dispensers and will feature a “core-less” design to further reduce plastic waste.
- GREEN PUPS bags are guaranteed leak-proof and have built-in odour control.
To demonstrate their commitment to the environment, Bags on Board and cycleWood Solutions have committed to help plant at least 5,000 new trees in the first year of Green Pups sales (Summer 2015).
