Small big innovations: PooPail is the system for collecting dog manure invented by designer Sandy Stinson.
I like it. It does not imply bending over to collect. It doesn't even involve using gloves and hands. No, not even face the smell! PooPail has a long arm scoop and a special basket “lined” by a bag. The lid, with automatic opening, opens to collect the "product" of your four-legged friend and closes to keep it "sheltered" from rain, sun and ... flies.
Dog droppings: one sweep of the broom and off you go
Yes, it's a poop invention (I say that before the idea inevitably forms in your head), but I find it useful. PooPail has the merit of reducing the collection of dog excrements to a simple, quick sweep: almost surgical. Each PooPail also comes with special biodegradable and easy to replace waste bags.
PooPail opens easily, but once dog droppings are collected and closed, it is really tightly closed. The special closure of the basket, with mechanisms not too different from those of a diaper holder, allow to "accumulate" canine dejections for up to a week, to also reduce the trips to the bin.
What else is there to add? A gadget like this participates in its own small way in a better future: it reduces waste, encourages cleaning, focuses on biodegradable materials and simplifies life. I hope you successfully pass the crowdfunding phase he's facing on Kickstarter, and then I can't wait to see it in the hands of diligent owners who are no longer reluctant to this “annoying” operation.
Dirty streets are worse. And even the bags that rot in landfills!
PooPail bags are specially designed certified compostable / biodegradable which means they decompose along with your dog's poop and won't seal in landfills for centuries.
