Mission.

Our mission is to monetize dog poop.

Bacteria

Dog poop carries dangerous bacteria. When we look at the statistics we can see how important it is to cleanup after your dog.

23M

1g of dog poop can contain 23 MILLION fecal coliform bacteria, a contributor of kidney disease.

30%

Up to 30% of bacteria found in water is from undisposed dog waste.

50%

Up to 50% of airborne bacteria is from dog waste (Ohio & Michigan study).

3rd

Dogs are the 3rd leading contributor of pollution in contaminated waters.

Dog poop contains a plethora of harmful bacteria such as E. Coli, Salmonella, and Campylobacter. These bacteria can cause a wide range of symptoms including fever, nausea, diarrhea, and even death in some cases. On an even more frightening note, scientists in Southern Italy were able to isolate multiple antibiotic resistant strains of Enterococci and Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in canine fecal samples.

Prevelance

Many people believe that dog poop is fertilizer. This is false. Dog poop brings harmful bacteria into our soil and water. When we look at the statistics we can see how important it is to cleanup after your dog.

100

Bacteria from 100 dogs can create a 20 mile radius of unswimmable and undrinkable water.

10.6m

America’s 83 million pet dogs produce 10.6 MILLION tons of poop every year.

40%

40% of dog owners admit they do not clean up after their dog in public.

40m+

Over 4 MILLION tons of dog poop can go uncleaned in America each year.

According to the American Pet Products Association, there are more than 77 million dogs currently residing in the United States. On a daily basis, they each produce about .75 pounds of waste, which equates to around 57 million pounds daily, and over 10 million tons annually. To put this in perspective, you’d need over 250 thousand semi-trucks to contain all the waste generated by American dogs annually. If you placed these trucks in a single file line, they would span 3,800 miles, or the distance between Boston and Seattle. Considering the estimate that only around 60% of dog owners clean up after their companions, it becomes extremely clear that something must be done to combat this massive unchecked production of waste.

Our plan

We plan to monetize dog waste and clean Earth. If we can increase dog waste removal by 1%, we would remove 40,000 tons of dog waste each year. Here’s how we will do it.

Mobile App

Our mobile app will be an easy way for people to earn money from tagging and cleaning up dog poop. We plan for the mobile app to create environmental and dog loving communities. In order to stimulate application usage and cleanups, we will inject funds to directly compensate users for dog waste removal

Industry Partnerships

We plan to partner with local governement and industry leaders to assist in large scale cleanup efforts. By partnering with like minded companies, wwe will educate community members on the importance of proper waste disposal as well as its easy implementation through our mobile application.
