A GREAT Invention: Flushable dog poo bags!

Anyone that owns a dog or dogs should get biodegradable dog poo bags. You can flush them down your toilet and not have stinky garbage cans and fill up landfills with more plastic (and poo).
(and 10% of profit is donated to the ASPCA to fight against Puppy Mills).

*They're convenient for pet owners living in apartments, too- who have no place to dispose of waste.
USE THE POO CALCULATOR!! to see how much waste you're putting in landfills annually (you've got to admit in a SICK way that you're curious:

 Study by city of San Francisco has shown that  dog poop occupies 3.4% of residential landfills.
Storm water carries dog poop and other dog waste directly into waterways. Pet waste is responsible for up to 90% of all bacterial watershed pollution in urban areas of the U.S.
Dog poop has a lot of nitrogen and adding nitrogen to our water depletes the oxygen needed for fish and  wildlife.
Plastic bags or even biodegradable bags when thrown in an air tight landfill would overcrowd our land and not biodegrade. An EPA report states, “Flushing pet waste is the best disposal method.”

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
