It’s the same old story give people an inch and they will take a mile. Laziness seems to be the easiest option for the ignorant and so the case is true with Dog Poop or Dog Poo whatever you like to call it. The problem is that Dog Poop bags are adding to the the World’s Environmental Plastic Pollution Problems and also becoming a local environmental nuisance. This is mainly down to the marketing strategy of the manufacturers who make these Plastic Dog Poo bags. They are clearly labelled in most cases highlighting the fact that they are ‘Biodegradable’. This has become the escape clause for these lazy people that think that they can just drop them anywhere and they will magically disappear. So instead of transporting the used bag to the next available drop off point (called a ‘Bin’ incidentally) instead they think it’s OK to drop them at the point where the dog stopped to do it’s business. Plastic pollution is the concern of everyone on this planet even you dog lovers. Also everyone has a joint responsibility towards their local environment. Everyone should clean up after themselves and not rely on others to clean up after them . Just because it’s outside of your immediate house or garden area does not mean it’s the local council’s responsibility. Local areas are for the enjoyment of everyone not a personal rubbish bin for you; you idle waste of space!
Dog Poo Bags will not magically disappear just because they are labelled as ‘Biodegradeable’
Perhaps it would be better if the bags were labelled clearly to indicate that the bags are only partially bio-degradable but only after a million years under extremely high pressure conditions. I don’t know exactly what the conditions are for their degradeableness (not really a proper word but it will suffice) or the length of time they require to degrade all I know is that under normal conditions it will not be in my lifetime. But I do know that they will not degrade left out in the open for many years. In the meantime we have to put up with more and more of this litter from these dog loving ignoramuses. Don’t these people realise that it would actually have been better for the environment, and local areas in particular if they had actually had just left the dog poo on the ground unwrapped, without the polluting plastic bag’ and left it to biodegrade naturally? That would make more sense you stupid ignorant and lazy people. Leave it alone and certainly do not wrap it in plastic. Don’t you ever read the news, or watch the TV? If you did then you would have an understanding that the world is suffering from the burden of environmental plastic pollution so why would you want to add to this by wrapping up your dog’s poos in plastic ( which claims to be bio-degradable but which is only partially over a massive length of time and only under certain atmospheric conditions)?
Stop adding to the World’s Environmental Plastic Pollution Problem by
PICKING UP YOUR DOG’S POOS BY USING A NEARBY LEAF OR OTHER VEGETATION. DON’T WORRY YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY! THEN TRANSPORT IT TO SOME NEARBY HEDGEROW OR VERGE- SOMEWHERE THAT IS GREEN AND MOST IMPORTANTLY SOMEWHERE WHERE SOMEONE IS UNLIKELY TO WALK. THEN PLACE IT THERE TO DEGRADE NATURALLY. YOU HAVE NOW SUCCESSFULLY DISPOSED OF YOUR DOG’S POOS IN A SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY. YOU ARE ON THE WAY TO BECOMING A DECENT AND RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN AND A VALUED MEMBER OF SOCIETY instead of a lazy ignoramus!
