Extra Wide & Extra Strong
The poop bags we received are the ones with an extra wide opening and handles. They measure 13.5″ by 7″, and can easily be pulled out of their dispensing-box through an opening in the back (these particular poop bags don’t come on rolls).
Side note: The wide opening makes these poop bags a great option for cat litter cleaning duty as well! I’ve used them for that very purpose at one of my multi-pet client’s home ~ I actually picked up their pups’ poop first, then headed to their garage where the litter box is located and scooped the dirty cat litter into the same bag, no problem!
As mentioned above, we won the lavender-scented poop bags ~ I’m usually not a fan of scented dog products because I’ve found that they can be overpowering. These bags, however, are a nice exception to the rule, as they aren’t overwhelming my nose!
The name Earth Rated already suggests the company’s dedication to our planet Earth ~ here’s how they go about it:
- The rolls’ cores & packaging are made of recycled material
- Their white-colored, vegetable based bags are 100% plastic free, meaning they will actually break down! (unlike plastic ~ it takes plastic about 1000 years to decompose!!!)
- Any bags not passing their quality control are donated to shelters
- Excess production material is recycled or re-used for future production
- Earth Rated is a Candian company, but has multiple warehouse locations, thus reducing their carbon footprint
Convenience of Handles
When we used to live in Northern Virginia, about 45 minutes outside of D.C., we were used to having our walking paths lined with poop bag stations and receptacles, meaning we never had to carry our dogs’ business very far.
Now that we’re in a less urbanized area in rural North Carolina, poop bag stations fill our dreams (I have, actually, dreamt of them…), but are unfortunately nowhere to be found in our neck of the woods.
I have, consequently, carried a lot of poop bags around on our walks, wishing for my hubby’s next military relocation to be in a more urban area, bringing us back to the convenience of poop bag stations. I seriously have a thing for them 😉
Since the arrival of the Earth Rated poop bags with HANDLES, the pups have taken on an additional job ~ that of carrying their own poop!! It’s super easy to tie their respective bags to their doggie backpacks, and it has made our walks more enjoyable for me 🙂
For Poops Of All Sizes
Earth Rated claims that their poop bags are for poops of all sizes, and guess what…they are right! My largest clients are Great Danes, and my smallest client pup is a Yorkie Poo, and all of those poops fit wonderfully into the Earth Rated poop bags.
As a matter of fact, I frequently pile up several piles of poop into one and the same bag!
