Keep Britain Tidy
We our proud to be partnering anti-litter charity Keep Britain Tidy in their new campaign targeting irresponsible dog owners.
Dicky Bag are supplying 20,000 biodegradable dog poo bags to help back the campaign and with a combined effort of numerous local authorities and an organization with such high profile as Keep Britain Tidy we believe that it will make a substantial difference to the dog littering problem in the UK.
Dog Poo Fairy
Fortunately they have the help of a ‘Dog Poo Fairy’ to spread the message to educating pet owners to pick up after their dog and a lesser known fact that you can use any bin to throw away this mess, not just dog fouling bins.
Keep an eye out for the fun Posters and Stickers reminding everyone what they need to do with their dogs number two’s!

Barry from Dicky Bag commented ‘We are really excited that an organization like Keep Britain Tidy is throwing their weight behind this problem. So many dog owners are responsible and pick up after their pets but we need to reach those owners who consistently refuse to clean up after their dogs. Not only is it unsightly, unpleasant and bad for the environment but it can have such far reaching consequences as shown by the little girl fronting the campaign who tragically lost part of the sight in her eye after falling in dog mess recently. If these owners used a Dicky Bag they would see how easy it is to be responsible’
Dog Poo Wormery
Dicky Bag are also encourging people to use an ecological alternative to dispose of the waste. Using the Dicky Bag they can transport the waste home (with no nasty smells escaping) and pop it into a wormery especially designed to break down dog poo. These will shortly be available to purchase on this site.
