Going Green
What's in a Scoop?

According to the EPA, a single gram of dog feces can contain 23 million fecal bacterial coli forms. Bacteria and parasites that can be transmitted to humans are often found in dog waste, putting innocent children at risk of some very serious infections.

Even our area's beautiful waterways are put at risk by pet waste, which contains nutrients that promote the formation of algae. As the algae grow, it enters and overwhelms the streams and tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, destroying habitats for aquatic life such as fish, oysters and crabs.

The only way to avoid such dangers is the prompt, proper clean-up and disposal of pet waste. The dangers of pet waste pose many dangers to pets and children by the bacteria and parasites. Let Port-A-Poo be your sanitary solution by carrying your pets waste while walking your pup.
