The Original Poop Bags® Philanthropy
The Original Poop Bags® supports causes that contribute to the health and well-being of pets and the environment in which they live. Here are pet rescues or environmental organizations to which we have donated cash, product or dog waste bags.

Notable:

Clearwater Marine AquariumWe symbolically adopted a dolphin named Hope! You can read about her story here. 100% of the net proceeds from adoptions go straight toward CMA's mission of marine life rescue, rehab, and release.

National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation:  Update: 105 hatchlings from our nest made it safely to sea! Click here for updates and to read about the sea turtle nest we adopted!

You Buy; We Donate® Call to Duty: MerriView Hill and The Original Poop Bags® are committing 10% of profits from three new, innovative products that help reunite war dogs with their former handlers. Proceeds will benefit the SwitHeart Animal Alliance & American Humane in their efforts to reunite these retired war dogs with their former handlers.


You Buy; We Donate® Earth Day: This is now an annual drive  The Original Poop Bags® dog started in 2011. If customers purchase a minimum of $50.00 worth of dog waste bags from  The Original Poop Bags® in April,  The Original Poop Bags® gives them $.01 off their orders. The Original Poop Bags® then, in turn, donates $4.21 to one of three organizations. Add that up and it is $4.22 (Earth Day 4/22).

Pet Soup Kitchens: In conjunction with The Honest Kitchen,  The Original Poop Bags® donated 12 boxes of The Honest Kitchen’s Keen, The Honest Kitchen donated 12 boxes of Zeal, and sold t-shirts to donate additional boxes to a local pet food pantry.
