Beco launches a Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Dog Waste Bag

March 7, 2023



CHARLESTON, SC. March 7, 2023 / Only An Ocean -

As part of their continued commitment to helping reduce the environmental impact of pets, Beco, the recently certified B Corp, has moved to making their unscented and mint-scented poop bags from 100% recycled materials. With the new recycled composition, they’re one of the first bags on the market specifically designed for park bins and general waste.

Based on Beco’s 2021 consumer study, they found that 96% of their customers dispose of their dog’s waste in park bins and general waste. And, after two years of research and development, they have now launched their answer to the stinky conundrum. Bags made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

Beyond giving waste another life, when Beco achieved carbon neutrality in 2022, their measurement found that recycled PE has a carbon footprint 86% lower than virgin plastic, and their further research found that recycled PE is 44% more energy efficient to manufacture.

As part of the launch, Beco has expanded their home compostable range to include new sizes, redesigned their 100% PCR dispenser and home compostable bamboo pet cleanup wipes. All of which will be featured at the Only An Ocean Global Pet Expo booth #4250.

Working to use business as a force for good, Beco is certified as carbon neutral, donates 1% of every sale to environmental causes, and is committed to reducing their impact. Only An Ocean is proud of Beco’s team and their on-going commitment to strive for sustainability.
