About New Company
bioDOGradable Bags helps to reduce plastic pollution through education and the use of their certified biobased alternatives to plastic bags. Pet waste currently contributes trillions of plastic bags that ultimately leads to plastic pollution, and it is a category that has yet to be addressed with a sustainable solution. Now, bioDOGradable introduces new methods of disposal through the first Home Pet Waste Composter, bioCOMpet, to safely eliminate harmful pathogens and divert waste from landfills to help support a circular life cycle. These natural bags preserve Earth’s natural resources without the need for fossil fuels and petro-chemicals, which allows it to degrade into a food to be consumed by micro-organisms. This patented vegetable blend addresses the plastic pollution crisis in the pet industry and works to turn pet waste into a high- grade compost to beautify our environment.Learn more about bioDOGradable Bags Announces partnership with 1% for the Planet!
