Clean Up After Your Pooch & Save The Planet At The Same Time

A recent Talkfest in Glasgow made it clear that the world is fast moving toward poo, and we’re all asking what we can do about it. SECOS offers a one stop solution, compostable dog poop bags. Well, you won’t save the planet with these, but you will helps Universe.

“SECOS sees its mission to replace single-use plastics with compostable alternatives. Of the 80 million tons of plastic produced annually for single use flexible packaging, 20 million tons of plastic are used to produce 0.5 to 1 trillion single use plastic bags each year , as SECOS wrote. “On average, each bag is used for 12 minutes. Compostable alternatives made with Cardia’s patented formulations and annually renewable resources make sense because they reduce environmental pollution from the proliferation of plastic bags that can take decades to degrade. And Cardia’s bioplastic solutions are more environmentally friendly than paper. It would take 150 million trees annually to produce paper bag alternatives as well as use six times higher energy to manufacture paper bags.”

SECOS is an Australian company, but Veteran Canteen Services of the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VCS”) has selected SECOS to supply MyEcoPet compostable waste bag products to 97 stores across the USA.

With more than 90 million dogs in the United States alone, the demand for compostable pet waste bags is expected to be strong.

The launch of SECOS pet waste bags under its own brand, MyEcoPet, in the US market follows its recent success in supplying Woolworths in Australia with the MyEcoBag range of products. SECOS is also in discussions with other major distributors and retail chains in the United States.

The US launch will be supported by social media, trade show fairs, and other marketing efforts. They just need the endorsement of a famous dog.

SECOS has manufactured and delivered over 50 million dog litter bags in the United States to date.

SECOS plans to continue launching MyEcoPet in the US by offering compostable products to major US distributors and retail chains.
