Compostable Dog Waste Bags

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.

Although at this stage our bags aren’t certified “home compostable” they can still be used in this environment, 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.


Simple Ways to Save Mother Nature: Compostable Dog Waste Bags

Climate change, ever-growing landfills of human garbage, and irresponsible disposal of refuse in our forests and oceans are adversely affecting the environment year after year. While making a difference may seem overwhelming for just one person, there are many simple behaviours we can change and even products that can help us collectively have a huge positive environmental impact and offset the damage that’s currently being done. As a Dog owner, one simple way is switching to compostable dog waste bags.

The How and Why of Compostable Dog Waste Bags

What’s Wrong With Using Plastic Bags?

Reusing single-use disposable plastic bags might seem like a responsible choice, but they can’t be recycled after waste is collected in them. Plastic bags also end up in Australia’s oceans, killing hundreds of thousands of marine animals a year. And the millions of bags that end up in landfills can take up to 2,000 years to degrade. Compostable dog waste bags are a much better choice because they degrade in a matter of months and won’t harm the environment.

What Does “Compostable” Truly Mean?

Every country sets standards by which products must be biodegradable in order to carry the “Certified Compostable” label. Some brands claim to be “compostable,” but even when broken down by industrial composting facilities, they leave behind microplastics which are very harmful to the environment. Only a Certified Compostable product is deemed to be virtually undetectable in the soil and breaks down to its natural cellulose beginnings.

Are Certified Compostable Dog Poop Bags Safe?

The short answer is yes! Unlike single-use plastic bags, they are thick enough to contain your canine friend’s smelliest poop and they are tear and puncture-resistant to prevent potential leakage or mess. Certified compostable dog waste bags also don’t contain any harmful and toxic plastic additives, chemicals, dyes, sulphates, parabens or petroleum by-products. They are 100% GMO-free plant-based.

Are Compostable Dog Bags Large Enough?

For you large-dog owners, this concern is undoubtedly on your mind. Measuring 30cm x 22cm, our compostable bags should easily be large enough for you to scoop up the biggest of messes wherever you go.

How Convenient Is It to Carry Compostable Dog Waste Bags on a Long Walk?

The wonderful thing about compostable dog poop bags is that they are available on a tight compact roll and with a convenient carrying pouch and carabiner. They are lightweight enough to attach to the dog’s leash, a hiking backpack, or a waistband. And the best part is if your dog decides one trip to pooptown just isn’t enough, you have a whole roll of bags at your disposal.

Choosing to use biodegradable dog poop bags is a safe, affordable, and easy choice any dog lover can make in order to do their part to prevent the harm being done by single-use disposable plastic bags.
