DIY: Pet Waste Compost
Meet Charlie, our 43kg Lab x Great Dane who leaves ‘presents’ all over the yard.
Any one who as ever lived with a dog will know they poop A LOT and they leave said poop all over the yard. You will also know that as a responsible dog parent, it’s your job to clean it up.
For years I have picked the poop up using plastic gloves, then placed it in a plastic bag and thrown the full bag into the garbage bin where it would eventually make its way to landfill. This Plastic Free July, made me realise that while I was making a conscious effort to eliminate single use plastic from my life, the one place I was using a lot of plastic was in cleaning after Charlie.
This is not a new concept and there are ready made dog waste composts out there but the largest I could find was only 2 litres. Charlie is a big dog and a 2 litre bucket just wasn’t going to cut it. That thing would be over flowing by the end of the week!
So, we decided to make our own dog waste compost.
