Biodegradable dog poo bags

Anyone use earth-friendly poop bags? Someone gave us a dispenser with a single roll of biodegradable baggies for Christmas, and I loved it. But I can't find the refill for that brand anywhere, and am having a hard to looking for a brand that ships to Singapore. Any recommendations? Thanks!!

We use so many poo bags (2 dogs, at least 1 poop each a day or more), it would be good to save the environment from some plastic!

Yes! I use BioBags and I believe they are the only bags that are truly biodegradable.

I bought a 60 roll box a couple of months ago:

Amazon.com: Earth Rated Dog Waste Poop Bags, Lavender Scented, 60 Rolls, 900-Count: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Earth Rated Dog Waste Poop Bags, Lavender Scented, 60 Rolls, 900-Count: Pet Supplies

They are very nice bags- plenty strong, easy to open, and they smell nice too. That particular size says they only ship to the US, but other sizes can apparently be shipped overseas.

These are what I use. I love them! My local Mutts and Co. sells them.

I use poop n' Scoop bags that claim to be biodegradable but I've done a test and after nine months it's still there in exactly the same condition. I've thought about buying paper sacks.

I buy the black poop & scoop biodegradable bags at the dollar store for $1 for 60. They are diffinitly bio. I made the mistake of buying two doz boxes and storing them in my garden shed(damp & unheated) I got a nasty surprise they were disintegrating when I would try to pick up. Now I keep them in the house and only buy a few boxes at a time. And never have a problem.

I use the poop bags and they are awesome, they cost less than plastic bags here, and are biodegradeable , 4 cents vs 5 cents

I found some awesome ones called flush puppies and posted video reviews of them today on my blog.

You can watch them here.

There are disputes as to whether some of these bags are truly biodegradable. Most of them require sunlight and oxygen to degrade, which isn't exactly abundant in a landfill.
