If anyone's looking for poop bags for the upcoming summer walks, you should check out Doodeefulls Dog Poop Bags (http://www.elmhirstpackaging.ca/0do.html).

They're the cheapest I've seen online (claim to be the cheapest anywhere online), are biodegradable, & have handles for tying.

Happy scooping! :stork-baby:

Yep, and they smell like chocolate or vanilla. :cloud9: I use them for cleaning my indoor litter boxes. They work great. Can handle a large amount without breaking. :thumbs up

Hee hee, we have "Poopy sac"s at the Bargain Shop :cool:

Something to keep in mind with the cheapy biodegradable ones is that they basically break down into itty bitty pieces of plastic bag or the chemicals they were originally made from (if you read up, these are really toxic :yuck:) so... if you can get the compostable bags, the ones made of cornstarch, they are way better in a "good for the earth" kinda way :goodvibes:. OK, i'm the picky one now!

Will I be able to find compostable bags at my petsmart or local pet store? grocery store?

Has anyone actually tried doodeefull bags? It sure is tempting as the biodegradable ones I'm using right now (bags on board) don't have handles to tie and consequently smells escape. ick. cat poop garbage... do. not. like. :yuck:

I've been buying biodegradable poop-bags at the Dollar-Store for a long time,like 14+I use them to clean out the litterboxes,but also for little Bailey's poop outside.

I get the PoopBags.ca bags.
Really strong and long... They have Biodegradable and Compostable too! And they have a lavender scent.

You can even request a free sample of both bags on their website before trying! www.poopbags.ca

I got 4 dogs and having a lot of poop bags around is what I need... :thumbs up

I have been using the ones from Dollarama since they started stocking them. I find them great for scooping the litter boxes then I just deposit the bag of clumps into the recycle bin in the garage. I think they are great.
I have only found the chocolate scent here though.....took me a while to figure out exactly what the smell was supposed to be. Never found vanilla but the ocean fresh sounds interesting! :D

I have been using the ones from ikea. I like that they are black and not seethrough... so i dont have to walk on the street for all to see what my poo bag contains. A roll is 99c and i am not sure how many bags it has but its a decent size roll.... i am thinking it has 50 bags in it roughly, btu its a guess.

Thank you for the post, I will check that out.

the ones from the dollar store aren't see through, and less than 99 cents a roll

From Dollarama it is $.99 for 48 bags. The manufacturer of the bags has a website http://www.epi-global.com/ discussing the technology of the biodegradability of the bags and plastic products. It is still unclear to me whether the bags are completely biodegradable or remain as plastic powder after decomposing. I lean more towards incomplete degradation, since it is still plastic being used.
To save bags I re-use them as long as the poop did not leave reside on the bag, luckily Leo's poop is pretty consistently firm, so I have gone almost a week on the same bag, I just stuff it in my back pocket lol.

We don't have a dollarstore here. :wall: Only walmart and I don't like the bags I've gotten from there. Very difficult to tie and no vanilla scent, just plastic and they aren't really that long. I want the vanilla kind...:yell:

Quincymycat do you put your biodegradable bags in the recycle bin?
They should go in the trash... They biodegrade at the dump... If you put them in the recycle bin, people at the recycle company will have to sort them and trash them...

I had to snicker a little,what does it really matter what kind of scent the poop-bags have,or no scent at all,the smelly stuff that goes in there takes over any vanilla-scent:laughing:
When we walk Bailey she can poop as much as 5 times,a lot of poop for a little Cocker:dog:

5 poppies on one walk is a lot of poop! haha!

Hehe... It's always a lot of fun!
When I changed my dogs food to a organic one they pooped a lot less...
And when you have 4 dogs like I do, 2 poops per day per dog is already enough... :p

I used to use those dollarama bags too, until they started collecting the cat litter in the green bin here now I get mine at giant tiger (awesome and cheap compostible bags) at first I didn't realize but you can't use 'biodegradable' in your 'compostable' bin....duh! :headslap: I'm gonna check this site to see if they have anything that'll work for us....those little doggy poop bags don't cut it around here anymore anyhow....7 cats worth of pee and poop can fill one of the kitchen compostables every day here!
