In Pups We Trust Environmental FAQ
When creating our Donald Trump ( Shitbags) Poop Bags, environmental friendliness was extremely important. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about our rolls that we are proud to share:
Are your bags are biodegradable ?
Yes, they are oxo-biodegradable
What does Oxo-biodegradable mean?
Oxo-biodegradable plastic degrades and biodegrades in the open environment in the same way as nature's wastes, only quicker. What's more, it does so without leaving any toxic residues or fragments of plastic behind. ... They have legislated to make oxo-biodegradable plastic mandatory, because it does not just fragment.
How long does it take your bags to degrade?
Biodegradable plastics take three to six months to decompose fully. That's much quicker than synthetic counterparts that take several hundred years. Exactly how long a biodegradable bag takes to break down depends on various factors, such as temperature and the amount of moisture present.
What are your bags made of, and does it hurt the environment to create them?
Our bags are 97% HDPE + 3% EPI
HDPE plastic is the most environmentally stable of all plastics – giving off no harmful fumes into the environment. Manufacturing HDPE plastics requires only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel from iron ore, further contributing to its classification of being Eco-friendly
EPI’s TDPA™ provides a means for rendering conventional plastics degradable, and ultimately biodegradable, within a reasonable and controlled time-frame. TDPA™ is added in small quantities (typically 2-3%) to the conventional plastic during the manufacturing process and allows totally degraded plastic products.
