Durable and easy to maintain. Pet Pick-Ups Pet Pick-Ups was founded in 1993 by two like-minded entrepreneurial women who wanted to offer dog owners a quick, easy and affordable way to clean up after their pets in public places and in their own neighborhoods. Responding to the fast-growing problem of animal waste, and with the support of various local parks and recreation centers, our young company introduced our first dark green bags. Colorado-based Pet Pick-Ups is proud to see our products in use across the country. Municipalities and Home Owners Asso - ciations that have installed Pet Pick-Ups dispenser systems report a decrease in public complaints and an increasing aware - ness among their population of pet owners as to the responsibility of picking up after their dogs. Pet Pick-Ups is a member of Co-op Amer - ica Business Network and is listed in the association's National Green Pages Directo - ry. To maintain a standing in the network, a company must demonstrate that it treats its customers, employees and the earth in a socially responsible manner. Furthering our commitment to find - ing the best solutions, we have expanded our product line to more fully meet the expanding needs of municipalities. We now feature bags in 3 different formula - tions: reprocessed industrial plastic with a proprietary blend of polyethylene, lime - stone, and PDQ, an ox-degradable additive that enables polyethylene to be digested by environmental bacteria in the presence of sunlight and heat, and our latest bag for - mulation, made from a biopolymer created from corn and potato starches, meeting all ASTM D6400 composting standards in areas where composting facilities exist. In 2010, Pet Pick-Ups partnered with Smithsonian Award-Winning Designer Michael McCoy to create our Modern Dog Disposal System: the perfect comple - ment to our widely popular Nature Dog Disposal System. The Modern Dog is designed for use in contemporary public spaces where maintaining a streamlined aesthetic is a must. In keeping with our commitment to animals, their owners and the commu - nity, Pet Pick-Ups makes contributions to animal welfare organizations that provide food, shelter and medical care for animals in need. Pet Pick-Ups encourages people to be considerate of others and the environment. It is the responsible thing to doo.
