Our Bags


Sustainability 

If you haven't been living under a rock, you know how detrimental plastic is to our planet. When you use Dook bags for your doggo, you're making a conscious effort to help 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
