What is unique about Poopbags?
Poopbags meet three U.S. certifications for biodegradability (ASTM 5510, ASTM D6954-04 and ASTM D5208). They biodegrade using EPI technology, incorporating a TDPA® plastic formulation that speeds up natural breakdown of plastic into carbon dioxide, water and biomass (i.e. materials that are found in nature). They are made with this additional component, blended into the material itself, that facilitates plastic breakdown. Despite that, they are strong and durable, even for heavy loads.
When polymer resins are manufactured, antioxidant components are blended into the material composition to make the plastic more shelf stable and longer lasting. EPI's oxo-degradation does not break the plastic down as long as the antioxidants remain intact, so the plastic will not prematurely degrade.
It is estimated that single-use plastics are consumed at a rate of 12 pounds per person every year. That adds up to a staggering 79 billion pounds of single-use plastics worldwide. Changing small, daily habits is the key to slowly decreasing these numbers and lessening the persistence of plastics in our environments that can take many years to decompose. TDPA® plastics degrade, eventually biodegrading to the degree that the materials once again return to the natural bio-cycle.
As a responsible company that cares about pet and human health and the wellbeing of our planet, we encourage use of biodegradable plastics for dog waste and other single-use purposes.
