Waste Not


If you’ve ever witnessed a dog-owner fishing an old coffee cup or retired plastic bag out of a city garbage can, you know that having a pooch can be a dirty job. But, thanks to a new line of biodegradable “Business Bags,” cleaning up after man’s best friend has become a little more bearable. Yes, you still have to bend down and scoop up your beloved pet’s early morning gift, but unlike Styrofoam cups or plastic bags, Spike’s biodegradable bags, available at, are made from corn and break down in as few as 45 days, leaving no trace of the bag or its contents. It’s as natural as, well, you get the picture.
