BioBag Premium Pet Waste Bags

This product was recommended by Daniel Caughill from The Dog Tale

BioBag’s planet-friendly pet waste bags are made from the starches of plants, vegetable oils, and polymers, so they break down more easily than plastic bags. We also like that the bags are opaque, so nobody can see your pet’s waste as you carry it to the garbage can or composting bin.

Certified Home Compostable Dog Poop Bags

This product was recommended by Christos Philippou from Delaware K9 Academy

These bags have a great feel and are not paper thin. I use them for my Great Dane and have no issues with them. I have yet to have a bag rip on me yet, so I think it’s a great option for dog owners looking to help the environment without sacrificing on poop bag quality.

GREENER WALKER Tie Handles Poo Bags

This product was recommended by Amber Rogers from My Chicken Guide

I find these bags the best for my large dog. Being bigger means bigger poo so you need the strength in the bag to hold the weight. Using compostable bags is very important to me with my environmental background and these are made of corn starch which will break down when disposed of.

BOTEWO Dog Poop Bag

This product was recommended by Joey Difrancesco from Lolahemp

Botewo dog poop bags are entirely biodegradable. They’re also a great choice because they’re sturdier than a lot of the other biodegradable options on the market. They smell pretty good, too.

Portworld bags are another sturdy biodegradable option. They degrade within a year to 18 months, so their turnaround is pretty quick. That means they don’t sit in landfills taking up space for decades before they waste away. Portworld also offers a free holder when you order.

PET N PET Dog Poop Bags & Dispenser

This product was recommended by Joey Difrancesco from Lolahemp

PET N PET poop bags are probably the best option for those looking to get a high quantity of eco-friendly bags on a budget. They’re sturdy, made from recycled materials, and include 720 bags for around the same price as the other players on the market.”

Earth Rated Dog Poop Bags

This product was recommended by Amanda Takiguchi from Trending Breeds

I have tried many brands of bags over the years but since I discovered the Earth Rated Dog Waste Bags, I use no other. I use the scented bags because on long walks it kind of disguises the smell of the feces (except those that are potent), so you don’t smell like feces to any passerby. I usually prefer unscented things because I have a sensitive nose and for those inclined, Earth Rated does offer non-scented bags. The Earth Rated bags are also a bit longer than a few other brands though most are similar length. However, the bags are heavier than many other brands and have way better sealed seams as well as high quality separation perforations. The central cylinder glides easily in every brand of bag holder I have. Lastly, a small but important detail…you know that small piece of tape that holds a new roll together? Most brands use a tape that when you pull it off it puts a hole in the opposing part of the bag if you don’t very carefully remove it. A hole at the top of a bag is no big deal but further down can lead to leakage. The Earth Rated tape comes off real nice and my first bag isn’t destroyed. Overall, a very strong, well-made bag that has never let me down. It can hold any load big or small, firm, or loose and will not leak or tear.

This product was recommended by Jean Chen from Cicinia

As dog owners, disposing their waste is one of the crucial situations that we encounter everyday with them. These poop bags are made to reduce nature from waste pollution. It is compostable and hard enough to tight waste inside which helps the smell of the poop stay inside of it. The bag itself has no scent and after a couple of months it starts to decompose together with the poop. It can be used also to dispose of some waste materials that make your home stinky. The characteristics of being hard and compostable makes these bags different from others.

BioBags’ are compostable bags manufactured from vegetable oils and other compostable oils, as well as various plant-based materials to make sure they are entirely biodegradable. As a proof, this product meets the standards for the ASTM D6400 certification. The bags come in two sizes, so you can choose the one that’s fit for your (or rather, your dog’s) needs. The smaller size can be too small for large and even medium breeds, so this is something to keep in mind. To make them portable, the manufacturer packed them in rolls. From my experience, they are very easy to use. Also, you can get them with handles.

AmazonBasics Dog Poop Bags

This product was recommended by Sarah Anderson from PupVine

If you’d like to get environmentally-friendly dog poop bags that can last you for a very long time, you should certainly try this product out. I bought a box around six months ago, and I still have plenty of rolls left! With that in mind, this is probably the best product when it comes to the value for the price. The affordability never hindered the quality, as the baggies are as durable as some much more expensive ones. You can choose from several scents, but my favorites are unscented ones. They are also the ones with the least artificial ingredients, making them a great choice if natural products are your priority.
