Cleaner parks. A better planet and a win-win for everyone.
DOGGONE GOOD COMPOST®
A Colorado initiative
Rose Seemann did the math and calculated the mountain of pet waste generated every year and its environmental impact She incorporated EnviroWagg, LLC to explore ways to recycle this source material that had just two endgames: trash or potential pollutant. Brian Hoogland, owner of Soil Rejuvenation in Longmont, wanted to find out if dog waste had special properties as a plant nutrient. He began experimenting with various bulking agents and natural enzymes to compost dog waste in test piles, following guidelines established by the EPA for pathogen reduction. His goal was not simply to produce a safe compost, but to transform dog waste into an exceptionally enriching soil amendment.
This was the start of Doggone Good Compost®, which we have test marketed at Denver area retail garden centers. We’ve done our own tests on plants with remarkable results! Sam Johnson, owner of Pet Scoop, and his associates collect and deliver raw material to fuel our enterprise. Terrance Galloway, our dedicated dog park waste hauler, rounds out our team. We are planning to ramp up production, sales and distribution to cycle more dog waste back to nature and help produce beautiful plants!
