Message from The Original Poop Bags’ Owner Paul, Mr. Poop Bags™:
Poop bags! When you typed some keywords into your search engine of choice, you may have laughed when you saw the link for www.poopbags.com come up. Well, when I was walking my dog in the summer of 2003, I laughed too when I first thought about the idea.
Click here to read an interview with Mr. Poop Bags himself!
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 my dog May’s poop. As a backup, I’d use bags from the newspaper, spare sandwich bags, ask my Mom to save me bags, or snag some from a friend’s house – it was crazy. Then I started thinking about all these plastic bags and their environmental impact. 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 The Original Poop Bags 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 a while to get used to saying “PoopBags.com” and being referred to as, Mr. Poop Bags. 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 strange reaction, and cherish the name Mr. Poop Bags, and so does the media. We’ve done interviews on the radio, had several articles in newspapers across the country, our products have 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 break away 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 it's 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. Nothing would make me happier than getting an email from you someday in the future 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, and I have five employees for whom I am very grateful. We sell direct to consumers, retail, and 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.
Paul D. Cannella, Mr. Poop Bags™
