This dog waste pail makes it easier to clean up after Fido

We love our dogs, but we don't love their smelly poo. Especially if it's in our yard. Wouldn't it be great if you could walk in your backyard without stepping in a doggie poo landmine? Plus, all of those plastic bags you're using are harmful to the environment. Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to easily pick up the mess quickly and sustainably?

Dogs poop a lot. And, unless you live in the middle of a forest, you have to clean it up. It’s probably the worst part of owning a dog—other than when you don’t clean up the backyard and end up stepping in Fido’s mess. We’ve all been there before, and we all know how awful it is. But, hey, at least it’s in the backyard, right?

The thing is, all that dog poop requires a lot of plastic bags to clean it up. Plastic bags that go to landfills and stay there for about a million years. What if there was an easy, environmentally friendly way to clean up after your dog? Now there is with the GoodWag dog waste pail.

Not only is this dog waste pail sustainable and eco-friendly as it helps you cut down on plastic waste, but it’s also super easy to use. And we all love easy.

This doggy waste bin is unique

This backyard pail is a dual-purpose product. It makes it super easy to clean up after your pet, and it also stores the waste for a week. This lets you avoid countless trips to the garbage can and wasted trash bags. Imagine walking through your backyard without having the unpleasant experience of stepping into dog poo or accidentally kicking a dried specimen. It sounds like a backyard paradise.

A dog poo waste container that’s sustainable

You know there is no reason to preserve dog poop in plastic forever. It’s harmful to the environment as it contributes to the ever-growing accumulation of plastic waste. Luckily, these pail bag liners are made from plant-based products, making them biodegradable and compostable. And since the GoodWag holds up to a week of your dog’s poo, you’ll be changing the bag less often. Sure, the bags might be eco-friendly, but using less of anything is better—and easier on your wallet.

What’s more, the pail is part of a two-part system to help you be more sustainable. Your GoodWag pail is sturdy and built to last for the life of your dog. So you won’t need to replace it every year like you do with other pooper scooper options.

This dog waste pail is cleaner

We’ve all done it. We’ve all wrapped that plastic bag around our hand after Fido has done his business and bent over to pick it up. Only to realize there’s a hole in the bag. It’s pretty gross. But with GoodWag, you’ll never have to worry about that again. Your hands won’t come anywhere near your pet’s waste. And that’s something everyone will love.

All you have to do is scoop it up with the scooper and dump it in the pail. No touching necessary, even through plastic. How great is that?

GoodWag is designed by engineers

Design is important to everything, even your backyard pooper scooper. The GoodWag designers thought of everything. The scooper attaches to the pail magnetically, so you won’t need to worry about misplacing it or the dog picking it up and running off with it. Because they love to do stuff like that.

And you’re probably thinking, “Leave the dog poop in there for a week? What about rain?” Don’t worry. They thought of that too. The GoodWag lid is water-resistant and meant to keep moisture out. You won’t need to worry about the sprinkler or the rain getting into the pail and making, well, a hot mess. And the lid also helps to contain the odor.

What we ❤️ about GoodWag

Sustainability is where it’s at. We love that you don’t have to use wasteful, harmful plastic bags in it. And being able to use the bags for a week helps reduce even more waste.

What we would ❤️ to see

We’d love to see a scoop option that was more of a grabber than a scoop. Sometimes it can be difficult to get the scoop under the poop. And we’d love to see an even taller scoop option for people who have difficulty bending over at all.
