    This is the third brand of waste bags I have tried, and although I’m no expert, I do spend a lot of my day picking up poop. Hopefully this review helps you in your quest for the right bag!

    WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THEM
    So far I have had zero tears. Yup, absolutely none. Whether removing a bag from the roll or actually using it, the bags have maintained a perfect record, something that cannot be said for all waste bags! There is NOTHING worse than picking up dog waste, only to find that a bag has ripped. This is especially bad when you are out in public…and believe me it HAS happened. My first gauge for a good bag is strength – everything else is secondary. The price of these bags is also very attractive – we just added a second dog, and being a puppy he has to go number two almost five times every day. Compared to our first dog that goes MAYBE twice depending on her appetite, my waste-bag budget just quadrupled. At just under $0.04 per bag, I’m not complaining. I also really like that these bags are made out of recycled plastic, and that the company is making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. I know that many companies are doing this for their public image (rather than for the environment), but honestly I don’t care about their motives.

    WHY NOT 5 STARS?
    Despite knowing this going in to my purchase, these bags are not biodegradable. I have yet to find an *inexpensive*, durable and biodegradable bag, therefore I have yet to rate any waste bags with the full five stars. This is definitely a 4.5-star product, but I’ll reserve the five-star rating for now. The problem right now is that there are so few biodegradable waste bags on the market, that those who are making them can elevate the price to a point that I just cannot afford. If a company can start making durable and biodegradable bags at a reasonable price, I will switch immediately.

    OVERALL
    The price and durability of these waste bags are absolutely top-notch, and I highly recommend checking them out (with the one caveat mentioned above).

    These bags are just about perfect for our 19 lb dog. They are plenty large enough, without being too big and cumbersome, and they hold together great. I had a roll once where the bottom kept popping open. That sucked. It hasn’t happened since, though, so I guess it was a fluke.

    I put each roll in a ‘Primal Pet Gear Dog Poop Bag Holder’ https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H4TEWZS that attaches to my leash. Good times…

    Eco-friendlier and cost effective option for your pup., October 22, 2013

    I was tired of paying $8 at my local pet store for four rolls of poop bags that I would just be throwing away after one use. I was also not happy with selection of eco-friendly products for this necessity (unless you want to be a jerk that leaves your dog’s poop all over your neighborhood).

    I’ve tried the biodegradable and compostable bags, but guess what? If you throw them in the trash (the only option many of us have), those bags aren’t going to do either anyway. Biodegradable materials need oxygen and moisture to break down, and if you know anything about landfills, they don’t provide the necessary air to allow normal decomposition. I’ve experimented with the compostable bags in a separate compost pile than my normal household one (you’re not supposed to compost dog feces to use for your plants) and they did not break down. I’ve seen other reviews and tests that result in the same conclusion. I would just been tossing the filled bags in the city compost bin that uses an industrial composter and hope for the best with no guarantees. I’ve also seen the “bio plastic” bags that are supposed to break down just by sitting on the shelf or exposed to the elements, but I don’t want an expiration date on poop bags (and they didn’t break down for me anyway). Most of all, all of these options are more expensive than the Green N Pack and the positive, green results are mixed at best.

    The Green N Pack bags are the cheapest rolled version of an environmentally “friendlier” option for picking up crap, and in some stores, cheaper than the regular version. Ultimately, I spent way too many hours in my life experimenting with dog crap bags people, so I hope this review makes the decision an easier one for you.

    Bottom line: These are better than regular bags for the environment, as these are made from recycled plastic. They tear off the roll easily and pick up poop without getting me dirty. What else am I really supposed to expect?
