A lot of people are fond of taking care of pet particularly dogs and cats. However, proper disposal of the pets’ droppings could be a bit tricky! The most eco-friendly way to dispose your pet’s dropping is to toilet-train them. Unfortunately, if you have not trained your pets yet the best thing that you can do with your cat’s dropping is to use biodegradable cat litter.  You can use cat litter such as sawdust, old newspapers and rice hulls to properly dispose them.

For your pet dogs, simply use a dog poop scooper and afterwards bury them under the soil. The poop scooper is a reusable item and once the dog poop is buried it would decompose in no time. If your dog pooped inside your home, you can pick it up with the poop scooper and simply flush it in the toilet.
