Poop Buddy Review
is a subscription box that helps make your walks with your dog, a little more fun and less messy. Poop Buddy
sent me one of their subscriptions to review and I loved their subscription. Every month, Poop Buddy
send eco-chic poop bags, along with two selected products for your dog. One thing that stuck with me, is they donate 10% to WWF and dog rescue organizations. I love a company that gives back.
Why do I need to use a poop bag?
Using a poop bag from Poop Buddy is eco friendly. “Eco-Friendly: A term used to refer to goods and services, laws, guidelines and policies claimed to inflict reduced, minimal, or no harm at all, upon ecosystems or the environment.” 40% of dog owners don’t pick up after their dogs. When dog waste is not picked up, it goes into the soil and into the water systems. Most water treatment facilities are not made to properly filter animal waste. This means it could end up in your drinking water, YUCK. Dog waste also carries Salmonella, E.coli, roundworms and tapeworms. The nitrogen in dog waste can also kill plants, wildlife and fish. To protect our drinking water, ponds, lakes and rivers, the best way to dispose of your dog’s waste is to put in a bag and throw it away.
Cost: 1 month: $10.00 a month
3 months $9.00 a month
6 months: $8.00 a month
What’s in the box? You will receive a monthly themed set of eco chic poop bags with at least two carefully selected products for your dog, from all-natural treats to chews and unique accessories. You will get at least 80 bags each month. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an extra large dog and extra large needs.
When do they ship? They ship the 15th of the month
When am I billed? 1st of the month
I love colored envelopes. Poop Buddy ships in a bright green colored padded envelope with a cute dog on the front.
These have 3.5 calories and harvest fresh sweet potato is the primary ingredient. These are soft and chewy and perfect for all dogs. This will go to my parent’s dog.
This is for dogs or cats to support a healthy digestive system and intestinal track. You mix the right amount with water (amount depends on the weight of the animal) and then add it to food. I will try this with my cat and my parent’s dog. Both pets are in their senior years. This is made with Papaya leaf, plantain, slippery elm, organic pumpkin seed, pectin, papain and fennel. There was also an offer to try a sample bundle for dogs or cats free!
The bags were super cute and perfect fall colors. The patterns were: orange with bones and puppy paws, yellow with puppy paws, brown with bones, and orange. There were several bags that would last awhile.
The bag seemed sturdy and I liked they are cute. Who wants to walk around with an ugly grocery store bag. I thought the bags were very sturdy. I didn’t have a dog to try them out on, but they worked great for my son’s dirty diapers and my cats indigestion problem. It’s great to have a set of bags that can be used for my pets and baby!
Final Thought: This is a great subscription. If you subscribe for a year, you only pay $8.00 a month. I like the extras that Poop Buddy included. I will giving some of these bags to my parent’s, for their dog and using some for me. Some of those 40% of dog owners who don’t pick up after their dog, live in my neighborhood. This will be great to help clean up some in my yard. Better yet, I might tie some bags on the mailbox with a note (Maybe a bit much). I also love that they give 10% back to charity. This is a great service for dog owners. If you want to sign up for Poop Buddy, click HERE.
