Why we love the guys at FETCH-IT
Simple, they are real people who care. They're a super small start-up based in Manchester. Here is their story.
In April 2018 we bought our first ever dog (Coco). We noticed that cleaning up after the dog with conventional plastic poo bags was not going to help the plastic pollution problem. We decided to buy biodegradable bags which are readily available from many supermarkets and pet stores. But, after further reading, we found that these biodegradable bags can take decades to degrade into tiny microplastics. These micro-plastics are also making their way to our oceans and harming our beloved marine life.
As a result of this, last year we decided to find a more eco-friendly alternative to this, so we designed a compostable poo bag which is made from cornstarch. This means that the bag degrades within weeks into natural elements which aren’t harmful to the environment. We have also made every effort to make everything about our product eco-friendly including the packaging.
FETCH·IT exists because we care. When it came down to choosing between plastic or helping to save the planet, the planet won every time.
FETCH·IT was created so that you didn't have to choose between being a responsible dog owner and helping to reduce plastic pollution.
