Earth Rated dark green coloured dog poop bags are made from degradable plastic; they contain an additive that encourages them to break down (unlike traditional plastic poop bags).
These bags are 100% leak-proof guaranteed, so they can hold any size poop safely. They're large enough to fully cover your hand during pick-up with plenty of room left to secure a knot when you're done. And they're designed to block unpleasant poop smells.
What are Earth Rated degradable bags made from?
Degradable bags are plastic with a Totally Degradable Plastic Additive (TDPA) by EPI added to allow them to break down. The EPI additive is non-toxic and produces no harmful residue.
How do I dispose of degradable bags afterwards?
Dispose of your degradable bags the same way you would a regular plastic bag filled with dog waste; place it in your general waste bin for kerbside collection.
Are these bags biodegradable?
These dark green bags are best labelled "degradable" rather than "biodegradable". They contain an EPI additive that helps them break down, unlike traditional plastic bags. If you want biodegradable bags please choose our Earth Rated Compostable Dog Poop Bags instead.
Are they flushable?
No! As a general rule, stay away from flushing your dog’s poop with or without a bag. It really depends on what water treatment plant your waste goes to, but flushing dog poop can upset water balance due to the high levels of BOD (biological oxygen deprivation).
What is the shelf life of Earth Rated degradable poop bags?
Earth Rated dark-green bags contain an EPI additive which accelerates the break down process, therefore, we recommend keeping them for no longer than 24 months. We recommend storing them in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.
What is the difference between the Earth Rated dark green degradable and light green compostable bags?
Degradable bags are made from “normal” polyethylene, they are still a regular plastic bag but contain a degradable additive known as TDPA (totally degradable plastic additives). This helps the bags break down into smaller pieces when exposed to sunlight, heat and oxygen.
Compostable bags are biodegradable and return to carbon dioxide and water, leaving nothing behind. Certified compostable bags begin decomposing from the first day in a compost pile and take 90-180 days to break down.
