But it's an awkward situation. Nobody wants to think about picking up the poop. I mean, we all do it. Pick up the poop. Every single day. But it's kind of unpleasant. You don't want to have to think about it too much.
I don't know about you, but I've always felt guilty tossing out three or four bags every single day. I mean, these are plastic bags - the things we're taught to reuse, recycle... not throw in the garbage. But that's exactly what I do every day.
Honestly, it was kind of a relief when Merry and I received a package of poop bags from Oops I Pooped.
No, not that kind of relief (grin).
These bags, while hardly a luxury item, do exactly what I need and want a bag to do:
They're biodegradable, which means they won't be sitting in a landfill forever, just piling up. This was the biggie for me. Way less guilt than with traditional bags. Why would you want to throw away something that will sit in a landfill for the next twenty years or longer?
They're made 100% from material that is totally environmentally responsible. The residue they leave behind after degrading is beneficial to the environment.
They're black, so they're opaque and nobody else has to look at what I'm carrying around.
They've got handle ties (always important).
They're very lightweight, without seeming flimsy.
What more do you need? I mean, Merry didn't really care about them one way or another, but then again, she's not the one who has to pick up the poop!
I'd buy these bags again in a hot second.
