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.
