|This is the actual poop bag dispenser and the bags all set up.|
|This is Lucy checking things out when I opened the package.|
|This is her denying she even touched the box even though I got it on film.|

|Here is the dispenser in its packaging. Sorry its sideways.|
If you own a dog, in some places, by law you must pick up your dog's waste. Dog poop isn't the most pleasant thing in the world. It usually smells bad and tends to have this awful warm and squishy thing going on. Most of us use shopping bags or pricey poop bags which make our wallet sigh every time we end up at the register with them. Well, Earth Rated poop bags are only pennies per bag!! They also have amazing varieties of bags for those of us with different variety poopers! They sell all kinds of shapes and sizes with all kinds of scents! We chose to try out the non-scented bags as Lucy is a hound with EXTRAORDINARY smelling power so just to be on the safe side we chose the ones with no scent.
They sent us a package of their un-scented, standard poop bags to try out and I think these might be our favorite! They are a long tubular shape and seem like they can hold a lot! They sent us a poop bag dispenser as well and combined they are amazing! When we go on walks I love having the poop bags at the touch of a finger tip! The dispenser velcros onto the leash so that you won't ever forget them! When we were using just regular old shopping bags, I would find myself forgetting them on our walks. I would end up having to walk all the way home to put Lucy back and then walk all the way back to where she pooped so I could pick it up. Having this tool is probably the best thing that has ever happened! The day that we got the package, I took Lucy out to try it and of course, she pooped where she usually does and I picked it up like I usually do. I think that overall it was a sturdy bag and it did the job well! It didn't seem like it would rip easily and it truly didn't have a smell. It also did a good job keeping the smell of the poop from escaping which I love! If you have to carry the poop back home with you, it won't stink up your walk too much!
As for the bags with handles, we also loved those! They were particularly large which is good for those oddly large poops that come now and then. I also love that you can easily tie them up. They also do a very good job of keeping the smell away which is definitely on my list for a good poop bag. Overall they are very great bags so either one you pick you will get a great deal!
Another great thing is that their packages and the inner role cores are both made of recycled materials! I am 100% for recycled products and just love when companies take mother earth into consideration when making their products. Earth Rated sells their poop bags in both scented and unscented for those of us who like choice. I chose the unscented ones but they also sell scented for anyone who would like to try that! Have you ever seen Earth Rated bags in green? Well have you seen them in white? They make two colors of bags! They aren't just for beauty though! The green bags which I received, have an additive that helps them break down. They do not break down the poop but I assume that the poop can be similar to compost in a way. The white bags are made of vegetable starches and can be disposed of in municipal compost facilities that accept pet waste. Earth Rated even supports fundraisers and adoption events so if you are interested, just contact them and they might be willing to donate some products!
Well, thats it for this review! I hope you enjoyed and please try out these products! They work great for us and I have no doubt that they will do the same for you and your pooch! Thanks for reading and sorry again for being away for so long!! Once summer hits, I won't be as busy and will hopefully be getting a new computer or my old one fixed. Thanks again guys!!
Abbey and Lucy
