Eco-friendly Ways to Dispose of Dog Poop

All dog's poop and whether that poop is all over your yard or landing along the course of your nightly walk, dog owners need an eco-friendly option when it comes to disposing of that poop. I read an article about putting dog poop in the trash and was alarmed by the number of bags that end up in landfills and how some dog bags are deceptively labeled to seem eco-friendly. Putting dog poop in garbage bags or cans is really not eco-friendly at all. BUT, until they invent a doggie toilet system, there are some ways you can dispose of your dog's poop in a more environmentally friendly way.

  1. Bury It: If you live in a rural area, you can find a spot in your yard to bury the poop or add it to a compost pile. it will release nutrients back into the soil. You should use reusable buckets to collect all the poop and then bury it deep in a designated spot on your property. You can still use this method after taking walks, if you are willing to clean a reusable container to collect and transfer the poop.
  2. Flush It: If you live in the city, flushing it down the toilet it the best way to go. Again you may need to be willing to collect it in a reusable poop container while on a walk, but this method is very eco-friendly. This method can also be used if you live in a rural area and do not want to bury the poop. According to many environmental experts, this is the most earth-friendly and sanitary way to safely dispose of dog waste.
If you have a few dogs and are serious about dealing with dog waste in an eco-friendly manner, consider getting a Doggy Dooley System. The full kit even comes with a pooper-scooper. All you do is scoop poop from your yard and put it in the system. Add some water and that's about it!

As for gathering poop while on a walk. Why not consider using old tube socks to pick up dog poop? You can grab the poop, flip the sock and even tie it off. When you get home flip the poop back out and hose into the Dooley system or into your toilet or compost pile. You can use a plastic bag to put the sock in and use the bag over and over again and just wash the sock and use again.
