For years, environmental activists have reinforced the negative impact that plastic bags, similar to those used in grocery stores, have upon the planet. These ubiquitous bags can sit in landfills for over 1,000 years. Now, people who love the planet and their dogs are championing a better option- corn-based biodegradable dog waste bags.
Here, ingenuity and U.S. farming collide to meet demand rooted in an urban problem, cleaning up after Fido. With the new bags, which programs such as the downtown St. Louis “Scoop the Poop” campaign are using, dog owners can rest assured knowing that they are keeping their city and their planet clean.
Farmers know how important caring for the land is. So enjoy walking Rex and don’t forget that farmers provide the fuel for innovative ways to improve the way we treat the earth every day.
