Make Cleanup Easy with the BearSaver Dog Waste Receptacle

Posted by David Moore on

According to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, 68 percent of American households own a pet. This amounts to approximately 85 million families. The survey also found that the number of households with a dog far outweigh those with a cat, with 60 percent of households having a dog and just 47 percent having a cat. Overall, this same survey found that nearly 90 million dogs have a home in the United States, with Portland, Oregon being the city with the highest percent of dog ownership. Being the proud owner of a dog offers many benefits. For example, research has shown that dog ownership can improve your health, in part because of the physical activity involved with caring for a dog but also due to the stress-relief provided by canine companionship.

Improving Recycling Success with Standardized Labels

Posted by David Moore on

Many consumers are unaware that recycling in the United States is at risk. Despite efforts by some to collect recyclable materials, we are still falling short of collecting many materials that could be recycled or reused. Similarly, recycling processing plants throughout the United States are experiencing problems, with many being forced to shut down. As a result, even those materials that are collected are often not recycled. At BearSaver, we are concerned about the impact that this might have on our environment. Therefore, in addition, to producing a wide variety of animal-proof trash receptacles and recycling bins, we have also teamed up with Recycle Across America in an effort to help alleviate this problem. Dealing with Contamination While many factors may be contributing to the lack of recycling in the United States, one of the driving forces behind recycling centers shutting their doors is contamination. In the state of California alone, more than 1000 recycling centers and processing plants have...

Park Waste: Seeking Answers to a Serious Problem

Posted by David Moore on

You might be shocked to learn that national park visitors generate a whopping 100 million pounds of garbage each year, resulting in enough trash to fill the Statue of Liberty more than 1,800 times. If shoved into the standard household trash bag, this amount of waste would fill 20 million bags and would stretch all the way from New York to Los Angeles two times. That’s a lot of trash. Overcoming Hurdles Despite the amount of trash that they generate, many park visitors remain blissfully unaware of the impact they have with their waste. In fact, a study conducted by Subaru of America and the National Parks Conservation Association found that 59 percent of Americans are unaware of the challenges that parks face in terms of waste collection. While the recent government shut down has helped bring this to light as visitors continue to come to the parks despite a lack of rangers to keep them clean, many still fail...
