South Australia pet lovers find win-win solution

An innovative group of dog lovers from Port Elliot, South Australia, recently teamed up with pet researcher Dr. Janette Young from the University of South Australia.

The team devised a 12-week project to trial green waste collection at their local dog park, survey dog owner attitudes, behavior and poo practices, and educate pet owners about compostable bags and home composting.

In collaboration with Alexandrina Council, compostable dog bag dispensers were installed at the park along with a dedicated poo bin, picked up weekly by a green organic truck.

Here’s the full story.
