Petplan helps dog walkers clean up 

Petplan is continuing its partnership with Eco Green Communities, Surrey Heath Borough Council, Didcot Town Council and West Berkshire District Council to help dog walkers clean up after pets.

Through the maintenance of 100 stations across the three council areas, the partnership continues to support and provide free compostable, biodegradable waste bags to dog walkers.

The project aims to reduce dog fouling in hot spots and popular dog walking areas. The environmental stations allow for those moments where walkers may have forgotten or simply run out of bags.

Bella von Mesterhazy, Sales and Marketing Director at Petplan, said: “We are delighted to partner with Eco Green Communities to provide an environmentally conscious solution, to ensure dog waste is disposed of in a sustainable and planet-friendly manner. By supplying free, 100% compostable waste bags to dog owners, we also hope we can work with local people to protect, enhance, and enjoy our beautiful green and open spaces. ”

The use of compostable bags has a huge positive environmental impact, the bags would normally have been plastic taking hundreds of years to degrade – only six months for the compostable bag.

The successful partnership across the three council areas with Eco Green Communities since 2018 has dispensed 1,557,500 certified EN-13432 compostable bags used in total 25.9 tonnes of carbon saved from entering the atmosphere.
