Poopin’ and scoopin’

Posted by andrea tomkins in: dog stuff|Publishing/writing/career stuff

This is not a very glam topic, to be sure, but after I did some research for a blog post about proper pet waste disposal for the terra20 website I knew we had to switch. I picked these baggies up this past weekend and I’m happy with them. (Well, as happy as one can be about poop bags, anyway.)

New poop bags for Piper

I’d love to hear from you on this topic. Is this issue on your radar at all?

Those are the bags we use and always have. Have I made a good choice? I have always gotten lucky and found them at Winner’s! I’ll head to Terra20 when I need them next time.

Yes! Earth Rated plastic bags contain an additive which helps them to break down in the landfill. Other plastic bags will be around forever. :(

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
