As a single guy, living in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, I would always run out of the plastic grocery bags I used to pick up May’s poop. As a backup, I’d use the ones from the newspaper, sandwich bags, ask my Mom to save me bags, snag some from a friend’s house – it was crazy. Then I started thinking about all these plastic bags… I looked online and started reading more and more about plastic bags in general. How they are made, how they’ll never go away in my lifetime,and then I laughed to myself and said, “What if I started a company called PoopBags.com and sold eco-friendly dog poop bags for a living?” Well, I challenged myself to find out if I could…
After purchasing the URL www.PoopBags.com and testing several manufacturers, with the help of my Vice President of Product Testing, Miss Cinnamon May, I chose the final product that launched PoopBags.com and The Original PoopBags™. Trust me, it takes awhile to get used to saying “PoopBags.com” and being referred to as, Mr. PoopBags™. At first, I was a bit shy in saying it as I knew the looks and reactions I would receive. Now, I look forward to every bit and cherish the name Mr. PoopBags™ and so does the media… We’ve done interviews on the radio, had several articles in newspapers across the country, been featured in magazines and more. Each year we have experienced tremendous growth, but we’re just getting started.
The entire World is now realizing that plastic dog poop bags are simply bad for our Earth. It takes oil to make them, they sit around for over 100 years, they harm fish and wildlife, they plug drainage sewers in cities, and the list goes on.
In 2009, I finally was able to make the break from the corporate shackles and can say that I am now officially making a living selling eco-friendly dog poop bags! It has been an incredible journey so far and I have not regretted the decision to leave corporate life one single day. It has not been easy – nor will anything truly rewarding ever be easy, but I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that its worth it. If you have something that you have always wanted to accomplish – I encourage you to do yourself a favor and give it a try. Set a plan, do a little each day or week, think in terms of years and take a lot of little small steps forward along the way. One day, nothing would make me happier than getting an email from you telling me about your story and how you got started.
Well, that’s the story on PoopBags.com, The Original Poop Bags® and Mr. PoopBags™ so far. We’ve moved from my dining room to a full blown warehouse, I have five employees for whom I am very grateful. We sell direct to consumers, retail and to commercial accounts such as parks, RV parks, apartment/condo complexes, vets and more all around the world. So, whether you bleed Green or “just need some dog waste bags” please consider a purchase from www.poopbags.com, The Original Poop Bags® and me, Mr. Poop Bags™.
You’ll be saving the Earth, one poop at a time. Thank you for your support, we truly do appreciate it.
