Poop Bags: Which Ones Are Really Biodegradable?

I spent this evening researching biodegradable poop bags.  Maybe it wasn't as much fun as what you did, but I did learn something and I'm going to put it to use by purchasing some genuine biodegradable poop bags for my cat and dog tomorrow.  One important thing I learned is that most waste bags that advertise themselves as being biodegradable are not!

Not according to the state of California and not according to any human brain that's functioning. When you learn that 'biodegradable' material contains any form of plastic, know that the item is not biodegradable.  It can not be absorbed by the environment, not in many many dog years. Maybe you can recycle it or repurpose it, but who would want to do that with a bag full of poop?  Anyway, plastic is not biodegradable.

According to the strict state of California, where I live, and which is going to outlaw the use of plastic bags in retail stores come January, 2011, (so I really need to get serious about getting a new source for poop bags), a biodegradable bag must become one with the earth at the speed of an apple.  That's about two weeks, unless you keep it refrigerated.

I found the BioBag is 100 percent biodegradable. It should be; it's made of corn or other food product.  And lucky pet owners can even get the bags that fits the size of the poop, but customers say you should err on the large side so there's no 'spill over.'

First of all, I appreciate

First of all, I appreciate all your posts!

Re. poop bags: I've been looking for reports of people actually trying to compost/degrade bags, and the results seem dismal. Check out http://www.amazon.com/review/R2EDC1A620IRGJ/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&A...

Can you tell how you found that the "BioBag is 100 percent biodegradable"? It seems that I'm trying to get to the bottom of this before buying any more "degradable" poop bags. :-)
