Dog Poop Bags: The Style Guide
Who ever said fashion and dog poop bags don’t mix? Ok, so it’s not the most obvious combination. But there actually is more to a dog poop bag than the bag itself. We’re talking, of course, about the design of the bag and its presentation. The different styles may not make a fashion statement (beyond “protecting the environment is sexy!”), but it’s worth a look at the available options to see what might suit you best.
When you’re out walking the dog one of the first things people might notice about your dog poop bag is its color. That is, they’ll probably notice if they can spot the contents inside (and if they can’t, they most likely won’t even think about it.) So when it comes to choosing the color of your dog poop bags, it’s a good idea to go with darker colors, especially black. They’re more discreet, and you’ll have the opportunity to be the neighborhood’s unsung hero for all the passers-by who didn’t have to notice the details of what you’re carrying.
Another aspect is the shape of the bag. The most popular by far is the variety that features handles similar to what you would see on an average plastic grocery store bag. These handles make the bags simultaneously easy to carry and easy to tie: when everything is said and done, just use the handles to tie it off.
While the handled dog poop bags are the easiest to tie, there are also some bags that do not come with handles or ties. These feature a different convenience: a board that the bags are attached to for easy storage. This style will typically also come with a separate kind of dispenser made especially for it. The fact that they hang wherever you place them makes it easy to grab and go when your best friend is in a hurry to get outside.
When it comes to choosing a dispenser, there’s a little more room to personalize your choice beyond convenience and being discreet. Whatever kind of dispenser you go with, there are a variety of colors to choose from. This might come in handy if you want it to match the room that you keep it in, or if for some reason you just really want to express your sense of fashion with a dog poop bag dispenser. Either way, we won’t judge you.
