Doggie-Bags Addresses a Public Nuisance and a Serious Health Issue Caused by Exposure to Dog Waste
Date:4/27/2010

80 Million Dogs Produce Up To 10 Million Tons of Dog Waste Annually, Contaminating Water, and Exposing Children to Diseases – In Response, Doggie-Bags® Offers Consumers a Solution to Dispose of “Dog Pollution” Responsibly

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 28, 2010 -- Imagine more than 10 million tons (9 million metric tons) of animal waste annually! Where does it all go? According to William Brinton, president of Woods End Laboratories, Inc., a non-profit research organization, 10 million tons (9 million metric tons) of dog and cat waste is generated annually in the U.S. The lab has specialized in analyzing animal waste since 1974.

Besides being a public nuisance, experts agree that conservatively more than four million tons of dog waste pollutes America’s waterways each year. This results in contaminating drinking water and exposes serious health threats to children who come in contact with pet waste when playing in the yard, at a park, while camp, or during a day at the beach.

Essentially, wherever large numbers of dogs congregate, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention Division of Parasitic Diseases, the issue of dog waste is a serious and growing concern nationwide.

In recognition of this growing public health issue, Doggie-Bags®, the industry leader in the design and manufacture of biodegradable dog waste clean-up bags and dispensers, today announced that Doggie-Bags® has launched a national public education campaign in support of “National Scoop the Poop Week” which is observed this week through April 30.
