Practica used to have “biodegradable” printed on their pick-up bags. We learned that if the bags are not disposed the way they are supposed to, there will be no degradation or composting of the plastic bags. To prevent any actions about wrongly interpreting the definition of biodegradable, degradable or compostable against Practica, we are not printing “biodegradable, degradable or compostable” anymore on our bags. The Practica pick-up bags are still manufactured with an additive from EPI Global.
For more biodegradable, degradable, compostable information please visit the Canadian Competition Bureau.
Upon receiving the order before 2:00 pm E.T. the order leaves the warehouse the same day.
It all depends on the dog traffic you have in this area. A leash free park uses more bags than a simple park.
Dog feces is more than just a nuisance – it can pose a serious health hazard. Here’s why: A number of common parasites, including round worm, are transmitted via dog feces. When infected dog droppings are left on the ground, the eggs of the roundworms and other parasites can linger in the soil for years. As a result, anyone who comes in contact with the soil also comes in contact with the infected eggs. Children run the greatest risk of infection because they’re prone to play in the dirt at the park or playground and then put their hands in their mouths or rub their eyes with their hands. Even a group of teens or adults playing Frisbee or touch football in an open area could be at risk. Parasitic infections can make humans extremely sick, and for pregnant women, can pose a serious risk to their unborn child.
– Advertisement on the bags (minimum order of 250,000 bags) through local Pet Stores, Insurance companies, Car dealers, Real Estate companies etc.
– Practica Sponsoring Dispenser with a plate to display advertisement. Please visit our web site under products/sponsoring dispenser.
– Increasing the dog license by $1.00 -$2.00 will help pay for the bags. This way the City/Municipality is giving something back to the dog owners, which will be very appreciated by the dog owners.
Wherever the dog owners are going for a walk. Downtown, Parks, Trails, Campgrounds, Condominium complexes, Marinas etc.
Hand a big fine out and make the name public in newspaper, radio and local TV. It will help drastically to keep your city/municipality clean.
Check with your local Municipality about garbage disposal.
