Reducing the environmental impact of plastic - with innovative everyday products from The Sustainable People
Poop bags made from biodegradable or recycled material. We offer these and more eco-friendly designed everyday products for the pet industry. The diverse range of The Sustainable People includes:
- Biodegradable dog waste bags
- Dog waste bags made of recycled material (PE)
- Treat bags
- Poop bag dispensers
- Poop bag grippers "Doggyssnapper"
- Biodegradable nets for tit dumplings
- Mailing bags
Together with our customers, we help to reduce the environmental impact of plastic. To this end, we essentially pursue two approaches: the materials used are either biodegradable or made from recycled material in order to protect resources and the environment.
What happened until now
Back in 2013, our founder Arne noticed almost 100 dog waste bags lying on the side of the road while jogging around Hamburg's green spaces and canals. Shocked by the sheer number of plastic bags, the desire arose to solve this problem and reduce the negative impact of plastic on the environment. In the same year, Arne developed biodegradable dog waste bags. This makes The Sustainable People one of the pioneers in this field worldwide.
In 2015, we started with the “Poop Bag Map” what is probably the largest study to date on the subject of dog waste bags in the environment. This is an interactive map in which users could enter the places where they found dog waste bags in the environment. With this environmental project, we were able to reach over 7 million contacts through reporting in various media and thus contribute significantly to raising public awareness of the problem. This consists in the fact that the bags usually used consist of approx. 90 % conventional plastic. Fatal and much more problematic than with shopping bags: dog owners understandably like to walk their dog in green spaces or by the water - in other words, where it is particularly painful when the bags are released into the environment.
In 2016, The Sustainable People GmbH was founded. Since then, our young company has developed rapidly. With our biodegradable dog waste bags, we are today the market leader in German city supplies (as of April 2022). In addition, many of our B2C products are already available in hundreds of shops and inspire our environmentally conscious customers. Regardless of whether it is a city/municipality, a company or a consumer: we offer suitable solutions for various areas of application in daily life to reduce the environmental impact of plastic.
By trying to keep the environmental impacts caused by our products as low as possible, we are already well on the way to making plastic waste more environmentally friendly in various areas of everyday life. In addition, we are continuously working on making our products even more environmentally friendly in the future, e.g. using renewable energies. A particularly ambitious but equally important element is the increasing processing of residual materials such as CO2, woodcuts, agricultural waste or lignin.
As we understand it, the essence of sustainability is to preserve the natural regenerative capacity of ecosystems. We at The Sustainable People would like to make a small contribution together with our customers - today and in future.
