Pet Owners

Given Houndscoop®'s mission of supplying you with a thicker, leakproof bag at a lower cost than our competition, why would you want to use any other company's poop bags? Throughout the design and manufacture phases, we had a Chemical Engineer, an Ivy League trained Physician and a seasoned Industry Expert directly involved. All of our bags are thicker than standard pet waste bags. They are tear-proof and leakproof so you will never need to double bag again! 

Our goal has always been to supply a better pet waste bag and offer it at a lower cost than everybody else. Contrary to what we've all been taught, less expensive can actually be better. Since we manufacture with absolutely no "middle men" involved, we have absolutely the lowest cost in the industry and we're happy to pass the savings on to you. 

That said, at HOUNDSCOOP® we know that price and quality of the product aren't the only reasons you buy something. We all are trying to do our part to keep our world greener. Currently millions of tons of pet waste are produced per year and only about 60% of pet owners clean up after their dogs. Most who do clean up after them are using standard plastic bags. It is known that pet waste is an environmental hazard when run-off from rain can pollute our watershed and river basins. By making our bags affordable and high quality, so that only one is used, we hope to encourage more people to do their part and clean up after their dogs.

At HOUNDSCOOP® we have an additional goal to decrease the amount of long-life plastic in our landfills. All of our products are eco-friendly and include recycled cardboard cores and packaging. Although currently only having limited added value, the standard silver color bags have an additive which uses TDPA® technology from EPI®. This technology has been designed to shorten the lifespan of plastic products that contain it and help them to break down faster than standard pet waste bags or shopping bags, when disposed of in ideal aerobic open waste disposal environments, which is why they carry ASTM D6954-04 certification.  However if the landfill is anaerobic no biodegradable or compostable product will degrade quickly, including paper and food. Research is currently being done to improve landfills by making them more aerobic and adding more microbes to increase biodegradability of products. Our hope is that more and more landfills will be developed like this so that the additive can be more beneficial.

The seafoam plant based bags are even more earth friendly because they are made from 100% renewable resources, unlike plastic bags which are made from petroleum. Our compostable bags meet ASTM-D6400 guidelines and are 100% compostable in commercial municipal composting facilities that accept pet waste. Our bags will not break down in backyard composts. Currently only some composting facilities accept pet waste but the number of these facilities continues to grow due to increasing popularity and demand for composting of all organic waste. If your local area doesn’t have this ability yet, it may help to contact your local government to get the program started. Once the composting process completes (typically 3-6 months), the components of these bags become fertilizer for non food plants, trees etc. which helps our planet! 

So you can see that no matter which of our stylish pet waste bags you choose, you have quality, great price and you are helping to reduce landfill waste. HOUNDSCOOP® Saving The Planet One Bag At A Time!™
