Alpha Pets Compostable & Biodegradable Doggy Poo Bags With Handle Ties And Recyclable Carton Dispenser Box – 320 Medium Large Bags For 3+ Months Supply

In a world where most people are reaching for single-use plastic, you can be the one who takes a stance for the planet, as a responsible, eco-minded pet owner.

Here at Alpha Pets, we believe in creating earth-friendly products for our beloved fur babies that are sustainable and environmentally-safe, without compromising on quality. And that’s why we’re so excited to bring to market our first product: our pack of 320 compostable waste bags.

What makes the Alpha Pets bags different from other biodegradable poo bags?

Our Alpha Pets pet waste bags are 100% biodegradable AND compostable (via European standards), made out of third-grade spoilt corn, normally a waste product left to rot by farmers.

With absolutely no EPI-additives or micro-plastics, our corn-based bags fully degrade and decompose in 3-12 months (depending on the disposal conditions), nourishing the earth instead of polluting it.

Their composition allows the bags to break down naturally and be consumed as food by microorganisms. Whether the bag of poop is thrown into a trash can or a bin dedicated to composting, it will naturally return to the earth within a few months.

Our ASTM D6400 certification, which is only given to products that actually compost, can vouch for that. Unfortunately, many poop bags that claim to be earth-friendly or biodegradable don’t actually break down within a year, and some never degrade at all. That’s why you need to watch out for what kind of bags you buy!

Products made of plastics that allege to decompose naturally in the environment are often “oxo-biodegradable,” meaning they contain chemical additives (such as EPI) that break down plastic into smaller fragments. Ultimately, these products can cause the same damage to the planet that any other plastic can.

So when it comes to truly earth-friendly single use bags, always choose compostable > biodegradable. Choose Alpha Pets!

 

How To Dispose Of The Used Bags Correctly:

To get the best results from our compostable plant-based poop bags, you have to dispose of them correctly. Here are a few options you can try:

  • Home composting – Bury it. This option works best if you live in a rural area with space away from the house. Waste should be buried at least five inches underground, away from vegetable gardens and water sources. Look up DIY pet waste composting for more tips.
  • Industrial composting – Transport it to an industrial composting facility near you that accepts pet waste. Because our bags are compostable and certified in Europe, they will be accepted in most facilities.
  • General waste bins – Bag it and bit it! If you can’t compost it, you can also throw the used poo bags in your general waste bins to be taken to the local landfills, where the bags will decompose in 12 months.

Alpha Pets. For those who choose nothing but the best for their pets.

  1. Max

    We’ll be swapping to these as our regular bags right away! We had no idea that the biodegradable bags we’ve been using still break down into micro-plastics. They are like glorified plastic bags, and I’m so happy to have found a truly eco-friendly alternative! ALSO the handles make them much more convenient for fastening and carrying to the bin then the bags that come on a roll.

  2. Aleksandar D.

    Great quality. Bought these on Amazon and I think they are absolutely wonderful, very sturdy, yet compact. 5/5

  3. Jimbo

    Great bags but a little pricey

  4. Mrs Martin – Amazon reviewer

    I’ve been using these for a few days now and they a great quality. Same large size as my usual brand but the bag material is much nicer and seems a lot more sturdy than other brands. They don’t have the usual rustling noise which always startles my dog on a dark night, LOL! They are a couple of pounds more expensive than the brand I usually buy, but for 3 months supply it doesn’t work out that expensive at all and having the additional benefit of being compostable and better for the environment makes me happy to spend a little more. Would highly recommend!

  5. Russell

    Incredibly strong, large capacity, and better for the environment. Positive all round. Been using these for a week, and I’m really impressed. They’re finer than the bags I normally use, but definitely as strong. I have a doberman cross and they’re plenty big enough for multiple poos! If I don’t tie the bag completely they can be used repeatedly for clearing the garden each morning.

  6. Dog groomer

    I recieved my bags today & they are great. A good size & so much better than my other biodegradable bags, these have handles which is great. I’m a dog groomer & these bags will also come in handy in my salon as they store well in the box & easy to access as well. The other bags I used were on rolls & ripped far too easy which is not a good thing!!! Will defo buy again!!!

  7. Steph

    Excellent strong environmental choice of compostable bags. I am a daycare and boarding provider and get through tons of bags. Felt guilty about the so-called degradeable bags which break down into micro-plastics. Sadly people see biodegradeable and think they are making a really environmental choice. It isn’t as little bits of plastic are scattered and consumed by the eco-system. After I realised this I have been using compostable bags made from cornstarch. I have tried quite a few now and liked biobags but stopped purchasing them when I couldn’t get tie handles. The Alpha bags are big, strong (no leaks yet), don’t split like other plant plastics – so pleased to find these as it actually pretty rare to find bags that tick all the boxes. My staff love them too and it’s worth every penny to get a product that’s “”pleasant to use”” when you are picking up constantly.

  8. mila

    I highly recommend these! And they are so worth the price – they’ll last you months and months. Just what I’ve been looking for! They are so big and strong, yet incredibly light. They mask the scent well while carrying when you are looking for the next bin and they won’t split when picking poos up from grassy surfaces (we’ve all been there). Especially useful for big dogs.

  9. Amazon Customer

    Excellent strong bags with tie handles

  10. Mrs J P Ormerod

    So delighted just about to order again. Having two whippets I am finding that they tend to poo in sync! these bags are plenty big enough to collect both (healthily large) deposits. The feel is comforting in that they have no plastic feel to them at all, but do of say a balloon. I love the feeling of knowing that I am not adding to the plastic revolution.

  11. Mike

    Good quality as well as eco friendly. Bought these because they were compostable but was a bit worried they might not be as strong. However, they are really good quality, very pleased with them.

  12. A James

    Best compostable poop bags hope they are back in stock soon

  13. Livo

    Perfect bags, if a bit pricey. These are great bags once you get used to the different texture – a bit like silky balloon. I feared they may disintegrate into pulp if they had anything a bit wet put in them, but we’ve had no problems at all. Nice long tie handles, and no awful scent. They are a bit pricey but I don’t mind that if I’m not adding to the waste plastic problem.

  14. Katherine – Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

    Very thin but worthily eco. These feel rather light and thin, although of course it is great that they are compostable, although I wouldn’t want them in my compost heap. It feels a bit weird picking up large amounts as somehow I don’t trust them so much as more robust bags, but they are surprizingly durable. They have ties so you can knot them and they are sufficiently bright to show up if you leave them waiting for the return journey on a walk.

  15. David

    Good dog bag. Slightly bigger than most brands which makes it easier to use & better for larger dogs.

  16. AL.

    The best bags I’ve used! They don’t break, perfect size and easy to tie. Even better that they are plastic free and compostable. Will definitely keep buying these.

  17. Mandy

    These are excellent and as I have a puppy he is making more mess than normal. I am pleased that they compost and also they are not too thin so makes using them slightly better

  18. Stephanie Fleet

    Excellent product and sent in good time. I will be writing a review very good product, but strangely very hard to find through Amazon search bar which is very strange. It brings me up alternative products even though I put a very specific description of these.

  19. Amazon reviewer from St. Ives, Cornwall

    For me it is all about NO PLASTIC in any way shape or form. I could find no mention of micro-plastic either, so felt was another plus. Do be warned though that they do not contain poo odour! but I felt this was a small price compared to the fact that they purport to be plastic free.

  20. Tony

    what can you say about this subject….not much.

  21. AJ Burns

    Need bigger (wider) ones for upright poop scoop. These are perfect! And 100% eco. Will use for composting.

  22. Ania

    Excellent bags – properly compostable, not just the lame OXO or EPA ones that don’t degrade properly. Worth paying the extra to reduce plastic waste.

    Turns out there’s a big difference between compostable and biodegradable poo bags!

  23. Davis Charles Elliot

    Arrived promptly. Good product – bags are slightly larger than normal.

  24. Ingrid Nisbet

    5 out of 5 stars – Very good poo bag that is environmentally friendly.
    Good size

  25. Tricia (Amazon UK buyer)

    Properly Green – just what I wanted.

    Really good bright bags and just what i’d been looking for for a while – with all the right green credentials I wanted. Will be buying more.

  26. Labrador owner

    Great size for Labrador, and plastic free so great for my conscience.

  27. Emma

    These are amazing compostable bags, and the most environmentally friendly option as opposed to the ‘biodegradable’ ones that simply degrade into micro plastics. They are a great thickness, leakproof and one box has lasted us months. One of the only compostable bags with tie handles too! Will be repurchasing, highly recommend.

  28. Customer 123

    These green-colored 100% compostable (as verified by “TUEV Austria” for home and industrial) poo bags come in a cardboard box of 320 bags. The bags are folded in several batches of – we have not actually counted – but roughly 60 bags. The bags’ dimensions are 15 x 34 cm including bottom and handles (23.5 cm without the latter two). Both sides unfold to an additional 10cm (as in depth). There are some prints in black on the bag, e.g. a dog and “Compost me!”. The unscented bags are not all see-through which is always nice to have. Although the material is thin to the touch, it is quite robust. The size of these bags is great for our Lab, for pick-up and the handles tie easily. So, a very good product in that regard (size and handling and, of course, being indeed 100% compostable). What we did not like was that, even when tightly tied, the unpleasant odour is still very pronounced, therefore 4 stars out of 5.

  29. Tea

    The best!! The texture is different not what i expected but thick. best i have had in a long while and good for the environment.

  30. Sheena – Amazon review

    Quality all round good product – i like these bags, store away tidy in their own box, seem very good quality we are on our second box and so far no faulty bags, like the fact they are kind to the environment.

  31. Dave (Swindon UK)

    These are great, tie handles are much easier to deal with than the flat top ones. Especially when trying to wrangle 2 dog leads and pick up poop at the same time. No leaks and strong enough for my 2 Staffies’ output!

  32. Mattie

    Way cool! So great to have some truly eco-friendly options!

  33. Tea

    The texture is different not what i expected but thick. best i have had in a long while and good for the environment.

  34. Sarah Simmons

    I buy these poo bags because they contain no plastic. They are good quality and have tie handles which I prefer. This is the third time I’ve bought them.

  35. Michelle

    These bags are great in the fact that the are not made from plastic, are fully biodegradable and have a good strength.

  36. Amazon customer

    Good strong bags with good capacity. Good price and delivered in good time.

  37. TL

    Non rolled poo bags…….yes please ….where have they gone? I hate all those rolled bags – specifically want compostable ones (biodegradable still contain plastic) so these were great they come folded in a box.
    What more could i want ? Well to be able to buy them again!

    Update – they’re back in stock, thanks to the lovely lady at AlphaPets who let me know they had stock back in.

  38. Ade

    Big, Strong, Work – They’re poo bags. They work. What else do you need to know?

  39. Jack

    Plant based and big enough for large dog breeds. Win, win! Super impressed! Got these for my big husky boy, as I wanted bags that don’t use the EPI technology (the so called biodegradable bags that still have plastic in them). These are perfect because they are 100% plant based, but that made me question their strength a little.

    But I had no reason to worry. These are surprisingly strong, they don’t tear easily and they are big enough for a large dog!!

  40. The best bags I’ve found

    I’ve bought these several times, decent sized strong bags that are fully compostable.

  41. Paulw

    Genuine bio-degradable bags – Great genuinely environmentally friendly product. I hadn’t realised that the supposedly bio-degradable poo bags I had been buying before contained plastic. I hope as more people switch to fully compostable bags the price will come down.

  42. Mrs Sally Courtney

    My all-time favourite poo bags! These are my all time favourite poo bags!
    They are fully compostable (I hate to think of the amount of non-compostable poo bags that I have personally sent to landfill!), a great thickness, have perfectly sized opening, are big enough for a big poop and have tie handles!
    The only thing that I have to complain about is that sometimes they are out of stock (I must be more organised when it comes to poo bag buying!), but this is clearly because they are so good.
    If I can help it I will never buy another make of poo bag again.

  43. Sarah

    Great bags – will definitely buy again! Great size, with tie handles, not one has broken and helping the environment too – success!

  44. Paul Simon

    Easy to use – both to dispense and to tie up. This is my third box now of these compostable dog poo bags. I’ve tried other cheaper ones but they’ve been harder to unroll and open and have been thinner. Yes they are a bit expensive but they do decompose rather than break down into micro fragments of plastic.

  45. Rich

    Easy to open large tie handle bags. Large very easy to open tie handle bags with the peace of mind that they’re not plastic.
    Came in a box that now sits at the bottom of the stairs. The bags almost open when taking them out and putting in your pocket which is brilliant If you’re anything like me who battles to open other bags when out on a walk. Happy with purchase.

  46. Jan Fitter

    Large, strong and plastic free. Large, strong and leak proof. Very pleased with these poo bags and they are excellent value for money, and even more importantly, they are plastic free!

  47. A

    Best compostable bags I’ve tried so far.

  48. Timbob

    We need to buy compostable not biodegradeable – these are just great. I read that biodegradeable bags still broke down to plastics which then of course enter the environment forever.

    Apparently compostable bags don’t, so I’m glad I found these.

    The material they’re made from make them lightweight but very easy to open as there’s a slight tackiness to them.
    I’ll only use these from now on.

  49. MR D J LOVELL

    Great product. Eco friendly – so 5 stars.

  50. Worth the price

    Although they are a little pricey, I would buy again. They are large enough and very leak proof.

  51. R.J.

    I have been trying a number of more eco friendly dog poo bags and these are much the best. They are completely compostable and although I don’t have a home compost heap I like to think that they will eventually degrade without leaving any micro plastics. They are strong with good size handles that are long enough to tie up, and they also separate and open easily. The box is well designed so that the bags are dispensed individually. It’s hard to get excited by poo bags but I would recommend these!
