Why Us

Why Dook?

If you haven't been living under a rock, you know the planet is being absolutely destroyed by plastic waste. We are a team that cares deeply about the environment, animals, and the people who live on this planet. When you use Dook bags for your doggo, you're actually helping the planet in the process.

Compostable bags > plastic bags.
Our bags are manufactured out of a combination of PBAT, short for poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate), and cornstarch resin. Our manufacturers products utilize resin derived from starches, vegetable oils, and compostable polymers that can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soil once they break down. PBAT is a fully biodegradable material when composted due to the presence of butylene adipate groups which is a naturally occurring compound found under the earths surface. Our bags break down within a 90 day period; however, in an industrial composting plant the molecules are biodegraded within just a few weeks. Our bags are internationally certified by the European standard for compostability EN 13\432 as well as the US standard ASTM D-6400. When degraded by micro-organisms the material is converted to H2O and CO2 leaving behind zero harmful substances in soil and water. E.g. we are no longer hurting mother nature <3
