Description

We’ve all been there at one time or another. Whether you’re on a dog walk, need an away from home nappy change, or camping you can have all the hygienic and convenient benefits of a plastic bag with a clear conscience to contain those pesky ”presents”.

The compostable dog waste disposal bags also work well for saving up food scraps to toss in the compost bin.

What makes our Compostable Dog Waste Disposal Bags so good?

The Onya compostable dog waste disposal bags are as natural as what goes in it. With a handy carabiner clip included on the carry pouch, it makes it easy to always have it On Ya.

Unlike some other bags on the market, our compostable dog waste disposal bags are CERTIFIED compostable to Australian, European, USA & Japanese standards, which means they have been independently assessed to break down to virtually undetectable levels in the soil and are deemed “worm safe” with no micro plastic residues left behind.

Our compostable dog waste disposal bags are palm oil free, made from 100% GMO free renewable plants and are free from any plastic additives such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polystyrene & PVC.

Our dog waste disposal bags are certified compostable in industrial composting facilities. As industrial composting facilities operate hot composts of between 50c-60c, our bags will break down within around 12 weeks. Our bags will of course break down over a longer period of time in general waste facilities, however due to the lack of necessary microbes found in these facilities it can take 6-12 months or more for the bags to break down to their natural cellulose beginnings.

Our bags are also certified “home compostable” and can be used in this manner, but like a general waste facility will simply take longer to break down if not hot composted.

Each dog waste disposal bag solution includes the carry pouch along with 30 100% GMO free renewable plant based compostable dog waste disposal bags and are easily refillable with 30 dog waste disposable bag refill packs so you can always take care of your business no matter where life takes you.

IMPORTANT: As our dog waste disposal bags are compostable it is important they are used ideally within 3-6 months of purchase and kept in a cool dark space, otherwise they may start to break down.

Dog Poop Bags

Dog waste can leave quite a mess on your property and in public parks or on streets. Cleaning up after your dog is one of the few cons of being a pet owner. There are quite a few different ways you can clean up your property or public areas when your dog makes a mess. Here are the top eco-friendly ways to dispose of dog waste;

Flush it – Many government water treatment centres have the necessary cleaning treatments to handle pathogens found in pet waste which makes this a pretty good solution for getting rid of pet waste on your property. Simply grab a poop scooper or shovel, pick up your pet waste and flush it down the drain. Check with your local centres to find out if they are equipped to do so.

Compost it – Dog waste contains lots of pathogens that are not suitable for creating compost along with your green kitchen and garden waste. But you can compost dog waste by adding it to a specific compost pile or bin until you are ready to use a pet waste digester that will turn your dog’s poo into fertiliser for your garden.

Get compostable dog waste bags – This is one of the easiest ways to clean up dog poo on the go. Onya’s dog waste bags are incredibly easy to use. They come in a carry pouch with a compact roll form that makes it easy to take along wherever you go. You can easily pick up pet waste on walks and even inside the house, should your dog have an accident. These dog waste bags are 100% biodegradable and compostable which means you can easily dump it into your bin or into your dog waste compost bin. The bag will biodegrade along with your pet poo and won’t have any effect on your fertiliser or on landfills.

Perfect for Baby Care

Our compostable bags are not just perfect for cleaning up dog waste. Environmentally friendly dog waste bags are also perfect for baby care. Plenty of green parents use cloth diapers in order to reduce the impact that disposable diapers have on the world. While cloth diapers are very functional, they do leave you with one big disadvantage, and that is to deal with poo on the go. Our dog waste bags are perfect for taking care of these things because you can clean up all types of messes including food waste as you travel or even at home if necessary.

Every dog has its day (and its poop!). It’s estimated that the average-sized dog produces almost 125 kg (275 pounds) of waste every year. That’s a lot of doggy dumps for dog owners to deal with, but handling all this mess doesn’t have to be dirty, inconvenient, or most importantly harmful to the environment. Committing to using dog poop bags in the most eco-conscious way can make a huge positive impact.

6 Tips for Using Dog Poop Bags in an Eco-Conscious Way

1. Choose Compostable Bags Over Plastic Bags

With dogs pooping up to three times a day, collecting that waste in single-use plastic bags means almost 1100 bags are going into landfills instead of being recycled, every year, for every dog. Plastic bags are devastating to local ecosystems, especially to Australia’s oceans, and they kill hundreds of thousands of marine animals every year. Choosing a compostable poop bags means fewer harmful plastics contaminating our environment.

2. Dispose of Poop Bags Appropriately

If possible, don’t throw compostable dog waste bags in a regular rubbish bin, but take them instead to an industrial compost facility, local refuse centre or even compost at home using a pet waste composting system. Improperly disposing of dog waste, even in compostable bags, can cause the faeces inside to be deprived of oxygen, and they will begin to excrete harmful methane gas. It will also delay the degrading time of the bags.

3. Don’t Use Dog Waste Compost on Edibles

If you choose to compost the poop bags yourself, don’t mix the compost with other organic materials to be used for growing edible plants in your garden. Dog faeces can contain parasites harmful to humans, and if used in soil or fertilizer for your vegetable garden, these parasites can be passed along to the vegetables. Instead, make sure to use proper home compost bins dedicated to your dog’s waste, and use that for your flowers or other ornamental plants.

4. Store Your Bags Properly

If you buy dog waste bags that are compostable or biodegradable, you will need to store them differently than single-use disposable plastic bags, otherwise, they will start to break down. To keep them from being wasted, store them in a cool, dark, and dry place, and use them within three to six months from purchase.

5. Choose only Certified Compostable Bags

Government agencies across the world have developed a set of standards to differentiate those compostable bags that are truly compostable and leave virtually no residue or trace when fully degraded, which are then given the title of “Certified.” Other “compostable” or “biodegradable” bags can still leave harmful microplastics behind.

6. Choose a Carrying Bag Made From Recycled Materials

For maximum convenience in using your compostable bags, storing your bags in a handy carrying pouch for those long walks is very helpful. To be as eco-conscious as possible, choosing a carrying pouch made from recycled single-use disposable plastic bottles keeps those bottles from ending up in landfills.

Owning a dog means that over their lifetime you also become responsible for hundreds of kilograms of their poop. The choices you make around properly disposing of that poop can have big implications on the environment, so it’s important to be as eco-conscious as possible. To buy dog poop bags in Australia that are certified compostable, biodegradable, and environmentally responsible, along with other sustainable items for the home, make sure you choose Onya.

    Love the produce bags I bought. This is my second lot as I was finding I use more than 8 so just bought more. Such a good price too. I also bought the doggy bags. They’re super. Thank you!!

  14. Heather P

    I bought compostable dog poo bags and bin liner a couple of weeks back, very happy. Always happy with what I buy from onya.

  15. Renae

    We use these bags daily for our dog and baby! Best bags … but the toggle on the pouch tends to break easily. We have 4 or more on the go at any one time and find we have to replace the pouches often. Worth it for the environmental benefits and supporting a local company. 🙂

    • Onya HQ

      Hi Renae,
      Many thanks for your review and we are glad you are loving the disposal bags 🙂 We are sorry to hear that the toggles on the bags are breaking – this is the first we have heard of the issue. The pouches for the disposal bags are up for review early next year so we will make sure we take a look at the design of these pouches and see how we may be able to improve them. Thanks again for taking your valued time to give your review – we really appreciate it!
      Kind regards, Your Onya Team

  16. Kate

    I just love these bags. I haven’t found any other poo bags (that’s what I use them for) that are totally biodegradable, and just love them for that. Large enough for any size of dog!
