    schema:description "Eighty-three million dogs and ninety-six million cats call the United States home. Dogs alone produce enough waste to fill more than 1,127 football fields 10 feet deep in a single year. Add billions of plastic pick-up bags to the mix and season well with tons of litter box waste. Scoop a hefty portion into local landfills and seal it tightly to ensure optimal methane production. Clearly, this is a recipe for disaster. Dog and cat owners who trash their pets' offerings daily are in denial about how much waste is produced and what happens to it. Those who want to make the responsible choice often turn to the internet, only to find misleading, confusing, and contradictory information. The Pet Poo Pocket Guide will help you reduce your pet's environmental paw print with: best practices for cycling pet waste back to nature ; suggestions on how to tailor your approach based on location, situation, weather, needs, or available time ; instructions for using your composted pet waste safely to enrich your soil and nourish ornamental plants. With recycling tactics clearly indicated as easy, moderate, or demanding, The Pet Poo Pocket Guide offers something for everyone. This no-nonsense guide is a must-read for any pet owner who is concerned about the environmental impact of their best friend, and is seeking a safe and practical solution. Rose Seemann is the owner and operator of EnviroWagg, a company dedicated to collecting and composting canine waste into safe, nutrient-rich garden soil."@en ;
