Hello lovely readers…. I am looking for your help?!

My husband and I are in the process of transforming the outside of our home into a really cool sustainable living space full of interesting areas to eat, grow, cook and play. Now the trick is we have 2 lovely dogs who are part of the furniture and family – they also like to POO!

Q. I want to find a SUSTAINABLE way to treat and dispose of my Dog’s Poo?

Q. Can Dog Poo be used for anything? Grose question but you never know some plants might love it….?

My reason to want to find a sustainable way to treat the dog poo is I will be starting My Waste Free Home soon and this means I will no longer have a TRASH BIN.

I use Earth Rated biodegradable poo bags to clean up the mess but I end up putting these in the trash. Seeing as I want to get rid of my trash can I need to find a very suitable home for at least one bag of poo a day.

For my organic waste I will be using a Green Johanna not composter and I also have a traditional composter bin.

Any one who could give me their opinions or better still their solution to a wold wide problem, you never know we could sort out the problem for a lot of people and divert millions of dog poo from landfill.

 

The lovely dog’s in question are posing in the picture above – Callie O’Malley a boarder collie/Retriever X and Jessie a bit of a few breads not sure really but she is sweet and totally in love with Callie. in the picture Callie is totally transfixed on the ball, Jessie is transfixed on Callie….XX

  1. Absolutely! I have a blog called Pictures of Dog Doo-Doo and there are a few options I’ve discovered in my research. The “Doo-doo in the News” page (http://picturesofdogdoodoo.blogspot.com/p/doo-doo-in-news.html) has a few stories about ways to harvest methane to convert dog mess into methane, CO2, and fertilizer, and I know of projects in New Zealand and the UK.
    You could use a shovel kind of thing and would have to set something up similar to a composter in the yard. I’m sure you can use the same enzymes as a composting toilet for humans – will you let me know how things turn out with this project?
