Be Kind to the Earth With an Earth Rated Giveaway

This week, we celebrated Earth Day. It's a day to support environmental protection. Earth is the only place we have to live and so we had better be kind to it if we want to keep living here. One easy way to do this is by picking up and properly disposing of your dog's waste.


We've written about it many times before, but dog poop is not fertilizer nor is it good for the Earth. Dog poop is actually an environmental pollutant. Rather than "fertilizing" the grass like some people might think, it actually causes grass to turn yellow by burning it because it's toxic.

One of our favorite products for cleaning up dog poop is Earth Rated. Earth Rated makes dog poop bags and dispensers. They recently sent us some samples of their products, but we've already used them before.

We received some of the Earth Rated scented dog poops bags, and as soon as I opened my package the entire room was filled with this lovely lavender scent. Or course, their bags come unscented too if you're not a fan of lavender.

Not only do we use Earth Rated dog poop bags for picking up after the dog, but also for scooping the cat's litter box.


So, what makes Earth Rated kind to the Earth? According to their website, lots of things!

  • Earth Rated uses recycled material for it's packaging and the core of its poop bag rolls. 
  • They make vegetable based dog poop bags (white colored ones) that are 100% plastic free.
  • Any bags produced that are not up to proper quality standards to sell to the public are donated to shelters. 
  • Excess production material is recycled or re-used in the future. 
  • The green Earth Rated bags contain an additive which helps them to break down faster.

  1. I keep Earth Rated bags in my outdoor dispenser for cleaning up the patio (I prefer handle-tie ones for dog walks). I have never thought to use them for cleaning the litter box - great idea!

    1. I must credit using them for the litter box to my daughter! It's her chore to scoop the cat's poop and I always see her grab an Earth Rated bag for the task.

  7. We're very good about picking up our poop here, since it's so important. And with Mom doing dog-walking jobs, she keeps plenty of extras on hand. We've never tried these, though, and they sound awesome. Love the idea of a product that's so eco-friendly!!

  16. We love Earth Rated and use their bags a lot. You can't have too many poop bags, right? I don't care for the lavender scent though, so was glad when I found out they had unscented as well.

  17. I want to win for my mom who just added a second pup to their four legged family. She's environmentally conscious but always so busy I like to either recommend products or surprise her with them. Their senior dog doesn't go on many walks anymore but she'll definitely need bags for the little guy now and this sounds like a wonderful choice!
