In the latest chapter to "DOSBODS Investigates" , it's... biodegradable bollocks.
I had been guilted into buying "eco friendly" dog bags last year when I got my second dog (last December in fact). The amount of dog shit being produced had basically doubled, so off I went to the local pet shop to buy some eco friendly poop bags. It clearly says on the packet that they are "environmentally friendly" and that they degrade naturally - within "3 months" (nice rounded number). It also says curiously that they are made in China...
Bullshit detector activated, every so often I started to chuck one of these bags into a bush somewhere discrete. Well blow me down, they're all still there. Three different brands, not even partially degraded, still as brand new as they looked a year ago.
Smelling a rat, I took to Google. And it seems others have noticed this too. According to this article, the journalist actually buried their biodegradable bags for 3 years in compost, and some other bags in soil. All of them were still usable after 2-3 years and could be used to carry shopping (except the one submerged in water for a year).
The moral of the story: Don't bother buying biodegradable bags. It's a great scam because 99% of people will not realise as they chuck their biodegradable bags into the bin and it gets collected, or into poop bins never to be seen again.
