Award-winning firm Beco Pets is giving away one million poop bags in a nationwide campaign to encourage British dog owners to be more responsible.

Beco Pets is launching the initiative at PATS Sandown 2015 (which opens tomorrow, March 17), where it is hosting a reception in The Buyers’ Lounge throughout the two-day trade show.

A spokesman said that Beco Pets is so confident that its poop bags are bigger, stronger and more eco-friendly than competitors that it launched the Project Poop Bag campaign using eye-catching countertop displays, and is giving the bags away for free.
Beco co-founder George Bramble said: “We started Project Poop Bag back in the Autumn and so far we have had nearly 300 retailers sign up to the campaign. The results have been fantastic, with more than 60% re-ordering within a month.

“It’s clear that pet owners are looking for strong, degradable poop bags in eco-friendly packaging, something our competitors don’t offer. The bags are even eco to the core – they have a recycled cardboard centre, unlike competitor products that use plastic.”

All PATS visitors are welcome to visit the lounge, situated in the Surrey Hall at Sandown Park. The Beco display area has been turned into a colourful Beco World, with a grassy garden, cut-out trees and an inflatable house.

Independent pet retailers can register to become a Beco bag stockist for free. Beco Pets has sold 10 million bags in 15 countries.
