Flush Puppies doodie bags are 100% hyrdo-biodegradable and flushable. Yes, really… flushable. Made from Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) – a water soluble, eco-friendly, “green” alternative to plastic – Flush Puppies are specifically made to dispose of doggie doodie down the toilet. (It’s science, people – not voodoo!) Unlike plastic bags or other “biodegradable” bags, Flush Puppies actually biodegrade in water.
What you do with the bags is completely up to you — trash ‘em or flush ‘em. But we call ‘em Flush Puppies because we think there’s enough crap going on in the environment without adding more to landfills, where your dog’s “business” will likely mummify and may not decompose at all.
Here’s what the United States Environmental Protection Agency has to say about cleaning up pet waste (link):
“Pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and excess nutrients in local waters. . . Flushing pet waste is the best disposal method. Leaving pet waste on the ground increases public health risks by allowing harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into the storm drain and eventually into local waterbodies.”
There’s no reason to add to the problem when you have the perfect “waste disposal” system right there in your bathroom. Bag the poop, toss it in the toilet, and flush. Your local wastewater treatment facility will do the rest! Flush Puppies are clean and simple, and using your head is always a good idea.
