Probably the most harmless poop bag on the planet.
Unlike any other dog waste bag, Harmless Poop Bag completely redefines the product category, encompassing unique water-reactive material that can disintegrate rapidly in the presence of water. Its non-toxic and micro plastic-free formula is safe for marine life, with exceptional durability. It can be placed in any bin after use.
Project Harmless Poop Bag helps to make our planet a better place.
Harmless Poop Bag is engineered to be ultra durable, yet it can rapidly disintegrate in the presence of water, particularly our oceans and rivers, causing no harm to marine life. It introduces an entire new category of dog waste bag.
Conventional plastic bags, including degradable and biodegradable bags, could still be functional after spending years in oceans and landfills. Over 100 million marine animals are killed each year by general waste plastic. Let’s save as many marine animals as possible with every Harmless Poop Bag used.
RECONCEPTUALIZED HARMLESS MATERIAL
More than half of whales, dolphins, and porpoise species worldwide have consumed plastic, much of which is toxic.
Harmless Poop Bag completely reconceptualises how dog waste bags are made. We repurpose the coating for medical pill capsules to a pet essential. Our key material has also passed the sensitive Sea urchin Embryo Test (SET) and is proven to have an absence of toxicity for many marine animals.
The vulnerability of marine life is under-appreciated, we all need to help protect our seas and oceans.
ONE BAG AT A TIME FOR A BETTER WORLD
Our planet is under constant attack by harmful plastic waste. Harmless Poop Bag helps to mitigate the growing global disaster by simply replacing a harmful dog waste bag with a Harmless Poop Bag.
It’s probably the easiest choice you can ever make to help our planet.
Join the revolution!
The Project Harmless Story so far
We started Project Harmless upon coming across an area full of debris and washed up plastic on the northern shore of Loch Long in Scotland whilst walking our dog. It highlighted the huge amount of plastic in our waters including single use plastic bags and dog waste bags. As we began to investigate, we realised the vast majority of dog waste bag products mislead dog owners or are silent regarding their environmental impact.
Little did we know “degradable” bags take over 500 years to degrade and in the process release toxins and micro-plastics. Also, many biodegradable bags cannot disintegrate in our oceans and landfills for many years. Little did we know that most compostable-only bags are made from GM corn and ideally should be disposed of in a dedicated dog waste compost bin, whilst the resulting compost should only be used for non-edible plants. The majority of such bags end up in landfill where due to a lack of oxygen and light they will not fully decompose for many years.
Our solution involved repurposing a proven water-reactive, non-toxic, and microplastics free material already used to coat medical pills, resulting in an entirely new category of dog waste bag. The Harmless Poop Bag disintegrates in landfill, and in our seas and oceans, posing no threat to marine life.
To play a small, but impactful role in helping our planet to remain the beautiful wondrous place we all know it to be.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN…
We believe Harmless Poop Bag can help slow the eco-disaster of waste plastic in our planet’s environment, particularly our seas and oceans.
Not one more marine animal should die by becoming ensnared or eating harmful plastic waste.
We believe “degradable” dog waste bags should be legislated against by governments worldwide.
We believe in Purpose before Profit. 10% of our profit every year will be given back to local communities, charities, non-profit organisations, and educational institutions, or reinvested in other environmental startups.
