Earth Rated dog poop bags are extra-long and extra-strong to protect your hands. The Canadian manufacturer provides a 100% Leak-Proof Guarantee. They are also economical - just pennies per bag.
The dark green-colored bags contain an additive (Totally Degradable Plastic Additive or TDPA) which helps them to break down, unlike traditional plastic bags. Testing shows that TDPA allows the bags to break down as it reacts to variables such as heat, oxygen and agitation, is non-toxic and produces no harmful residue.
Are they "biodegradable"? As international standards vary by country, and in order to comply with all labeling regulations, the manufacturer does not label the bags as biodegradable.
