As it turns out, there are no strict rules or regulations on what constitutes a biodegradable bag, and even the plastic ones will eventually biodegrade after thousands of years, so they sort of count.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFor most providers in New Zealand, ‘biodegradable’ means plastic with a degradable agent added. The agent breaks down in a few months but leaves behind millions of tiny bits of plastic known as microplastics that have a not-very-green habit of landing themselves in waterways and most definitely sh*tting on the environment.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLastly, there’s compostable. This standard is classified a few different ways so we’ll break it down as simply as possible. First there’s the overarching New Zealand-recognised international standards; American ASTM6400 and European EN13432.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe’ve gone for the higher EN13432 standard for our bags which is represented by the ‘seedling’ logo by DIN CERTO with the certification number below the seedling. you should be very skeptical of any company that claims a certain eco-friendliness without being able to back it up..\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan\u003e  \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0070\/3214\/3908\/files\/Certifications_Grouped_3x_910e8859-52ca-4c63-8847-d49d999b8aa3.png?v=1563580016\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e(Little Green Dog’s EN13432 and home compost certificate numbers)\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cspan\u003e   \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEN13432 doesn’t distinguish between home and industrial compostability though, so there’s a subset of EN13432 which in Europe is certified by TUV Austria.

Maximum quantity available reached.

Little Green Dog believe in showing our Earth the same love and care we show our fur kids.

Long story short: most of those biodegradable bags you see on shelves aren’t environmentally friendly at all. Instead, they’re made of plastic — with additives that break down the big chunks of packaging but leave behind microplastics that ruin our planet.

Little Green Dog provides New Zealand dog owners with a truly green alternative: fully biodegradable, 100%-compostable, plant-based poop bags so you can clean up after your pup without sh*tting on the environment.

Got a pooch who just loves to poop or a not-so-little green dog? Get some serious bang for your buck with a 120-pack of our plant-based, compostable poop bags. Lots of poop, zero waste: it’s the LGD way!

  • Extra strong & extra thick
  • Leak proof & large (32cm x 22cm)
  • Plant based and will not degrade into microplastics
  • Easy tear and easy open
  • larger than A4 paper
  • Made from 40% plant material
  • Home grown NZ business

Little Green Dog bags are fully biodegradable, 100% home compostable, and made with 40% plants — unlike the vast majority of the other options on the market, which claim to be environmentally friendly but are (excuse the pun) full of crap.

Here’s a quick rundown of the three different standards of bag:

First, there’s plastic. Low-cost, $2-shop-type bags that clog our oceans and get lodged in dolphins’ blowholes. Don’t buy these.

Next, there’s ‘biodegradable’ — or if they’re being sneaky (which they often are), just degradable. As it turns out, there are no strict rules or regulations on what constitutes a biodegradable bag, and even the plastic ones will eventually biodegrade after thousands of years, so they sort of count.

For most providers in New Zealand, ‘biodegradable’ means plastic with a degradable agent added. The agent breaks down in a few months but leaves behind millions of tiny bits of plastic known as microplastics that have a not-very-green habit of landing themselves in waterways and most definitely sh*tting on the environment.

Lastly, there’s compostable. This standard is classified a few different ways so we’ll break it down as simply as possible. First there’s the overarching New Zealand-recognised international standards; American ASTM6400 and European EN13432.

We’ve gone for the higher EN13432 standard for our bags which is represented by the ‘seedling’ logo by DIN CERTO with the certification number below the seedling. you should be very skeptical of any company that claims a certain eco-friendliness without being able to back it up..

  
(Little Green Dog’s EN13432 and home compost certificate numbers)
   

EN13432 doesn’t distinguish between home and industrial compostability though, so there’s a subset of EN13432 which in Europe is certified by TUV Austria. Being home compost-certified is a much more difficult status to attain, as the product has to break down in a more natural backyard compost setting.

Our poop bags are certified Home Compostable which means they usually require somewhere around 20°C to 30°C to break down, and they’re given a longer time period to do so (usually 90% degradation in 365 days). 


It's easier (and cheaper) to produce bags that meet the lower ‘biodegradable’ standard, like other companies have. But we take pride in doing the right thing when it comes to Little Green Dog bags — and when we look at how we treat the Earth, it’s what’s right that matters. Not what’s easy.


So join the Little Green Dog movement, and take care of your pup without sh*tting on the environment!


Little Green Dog grew out of a desire to make the Earth just a bit better.

Sven | The Little Green Dog

 

Meet Sven, the OG Little Green Dog. Sven’s a six-ish year old Shepherd/Lab/Husky rescue from the United States. Since day one, I’ve been buying biodegradable poop bags, thinking I was being green. For years I had been buying big name biodegradable poop bags, thinking I was being green. But when I started looking into what ‘biodegradable’ actually meant, I realised that something didn’t add up and that not all eco poop bags were created equal!

Long story short: most of those ‘biodegradable’ poop bags you see on shelves aren’t environmentally friendly at all. (Want an in-depth rundown of why not? Head here.)

Now me; I'm Todd, the founder of Little Green Dog and Sven's dad (not biological).



 

I felt ripped off by all those bags I'd bought thinking I was doing the right thing. I saw an opportunity to provide New Zealand dog owners with a truly green alternative: fully biodegradable, 100%-home compostable, plant-derived poop bags. And Little Green Dog was born!

Now, all of us eco-minded Kiwis can treat our planet the same way we treat our pups — like one of the family.
