CHICAGO (April 1, 2014), Inc. announced today the launch of its new fire hydrant poop bag dispenser into the retail channel.  The Original PoopBags brand continues to leverage the latest innovations in environmentally friendly packaging materials and production techniques.  The new fire hydrant dispenser is made with corn and the first of many new Biobased products planned for introduction this year.  The Original PoopBags has been offering pet waste products via its website for over 10 years and has stormed the retail channel since its introduction in January this year.

“We are on the cutting edge of environmentally friendly technology,” said Paul Cannella, President of, Inc.  “The fire hydrant dispenser is a natural extension of our waste bag line and the first product to prove our biobased capabilities beyond waste bags.”

The Original PoopBags dispenser is created by using renewable resources such as corn, and recycled content.  USDA Certified Biobased products help reduce the adverse impact of environmental and health related issues.  After complying with rigorous government standards and testing, The Original PoopBags brand is the first dispenser to become a USDA Certified Biobased Product available to the retail market.  To match its unique, innovative and eco-friendly message it has developed a unique ‘Chicago-style’ fire hydrant shape.

“We are a Chicago based company and proud of our city,” said Cannella.  “It only makes sense that we would use the iconic shape of our fire hydrants for our dispenser.”

With an MSRP of $3.99, The Original PoopBags Dispenser includes 15 pet waste bags which are also USDA Certified BioBased.  The dispenser fits all Original PoopBag replacement rolls.  In addition, the company has a total of seven Pet Waste SKUs available including a variety of eco-friendly properties, varying in size, features and price points.  The brand is supported with a full trade and consumer awareness advertising campaign unseen in this category.
