Are made from a resin derived from plant starches including non-GMO cornstarch, vegetable oils, and compostable polymers, unlike typical plastic bags which use multiple chemicals in the manufacturing process, including the planet's non-renewable fossil fuels.
Are compostable in your backyard and industrial composting facilities, thus turning your dog's waste into nutrient-rich soil that is useful for decorative gardens.
Are made of cardboard packaging that is 50% recycled materials, and are ready to be recycled again upon disposal.
Are more likely to degrade in landfills than non-biodegradable bags. While the atmospheric conditions of landfills are not always conducive to biodegradation, Lil' Archie's bags are always a smarter environmental choice, with a greater opportunity for breaking down than current plastic bags on the market.
Composting: You can toss your poop filled Lil' Archie's bag into a dog waste compost, and it will degrade within three months or less. The resulting soil is useful for non-edible garden use (soil utilizing dog waste is never safe for edible gardens).
Compost facilities: Some dedicated, Earth-loving people choose this option to dispose of their used dog bags. Check to see if a municipal compost is near you for details on utilizing this service. Also, companies that provide dog waste pick-up for composting purposes are growing throughout the United States. Why not do your environmental duty while someone else does the dirty work?
Backyard burial: If you're fortunate to have a spacious backyard, you can bury the bags into at least 15 inches of soil, keeping a distance from edible gardens and water sources. Your dog's waste and the Lil' Archie's bag that carries it will compost back to nature leaving no harmful residues behind.
As the bioplastic science community continues to innovate and transform current unsustainable plastic packaging products, the Lil' Archie's team is paying close attention and is actively involved in the movement to rid the planet of plastic bag pollution. Please join us!
