These are so great!
From what I’ve gathered, these green bags are made from recycled material and have an EPI component. Unlike traditional plastic bags that never break down, this component allows them to break down in approximately 18 – 24 MONTHS. While the timing is a bit on the longer side, It’s fine by me and much better than the alternative of never breaking down at all!
After I watched “Plastic Paradise” on Netflix, my perspective on using plastic entirely changed. I never knew how damaging it truly is and now, I’m just trying to do every bit that I can to create less waste. So the fact that these eventually deteriorate are a huge plus!
Also, these are very decently priced! Some of the non environmentally friendly/completely plastic products are less expensive, but only by a slim margin. So these definitely won’t hurt your wallet!
As for the product itself, they’re so cute. I’m a designer and I have to say, I find everything about this product to be aesthetically pleasing, which is ironic considering they are poopy bags! lol.
But seriously, the packaging itself is super cute. The baggies are also great! They are a cheery, bright green color and slightly longer than normal bags, which I find to be very useful for second pick-ups. They are also thick and very easy to open. Also, they have a lavender scent. Personally, I love lavender, so this is probably my favorite part! The lavender smell is enough to cover up the poopy smell and really makes the experience so much more tolerable. However, if you’re not a fan of lavender, don’t worry. The scent is far from overwhelming and definitely won’t give you a headache or anything like that!
I purchased these bags along with their bag dispenser (made from the same company). They fit perfectly in there and the dispenser itself is an oval/pill shape and is also really well designed. It matches the bags with it’s bright green color. I also like it’s texture, which I know sounds a bit odd, but compared to other dispensers, it seems to have a really nice/well made quality to it. The dispenser also comes with a velcro strap on which I find works great for my retractable leash!
However, if you already have a bag dispenser, I’m sure these bags will work find with that. While, they are a bit longer, they aren’t so much longer that they won’t fit into another dispenser type.
Overall, I really enjoy these bags and I really do appreciate that they took a little time on adding a few extra “bells and whistles” with the fun packaging, color, and lavender scent. Who knew that poop picking could be improved?! haha. 🙂
