Yup, you read that right
Poo 💩 Pouch
Dad always told me to pack out what I packed in. Leave the area as good, if not better, than how I found it. Please don't litter. Grab your used toilet paper, your dog waste, or any other unpleasant item and pack it out using the Poo Pouch.
-The green pouch won’t have the logos seen on the blue
-Product does not come with any wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.
Since it is water/airtight, odors will be contained and you will be leaving the outdoors as clean as you found them. Made from thick BPA-free PVC with a roll-top closure, this awesome little bag even has a clear external pocket to carry some pickup bags, wipes, tissue, sanitizer, or other small essentials. Being clear, you can easily see what supplies you have at the ready. It even comes with a convenient carry strap that attaches to D-rings. When full the bag measures about 4.5" in diameter and about 8 to10" tall when rolled closed, 2+ liters.
We work with a lot of Parks.
One of our park buyers (Teton National Park) asked us if we were up for a challenge. It was explained to us that one of the biggest issues (since COVID) was soiled toilet paper rolling around on the park trails. COVID gave many of us a deeper appreciation for the outdoors resulting in higher traffic in our National Parks and State Parks. It turns out that many people can’t make it back to park toilet stations so they take a few steps off the trail and relieve themselves (it’s natural, we get it). The problem comes in when the said person wipes themselves with some TP 🧻 and then it just gets left right there.
When I’m at a park, I tend to pick up random trash as I hike (leave it better than you found it principle). …but when I see toilet paper, I just can’t bring myself to pick it up. 🤢
The buyer asked us to create a reusable, cleanable bag to hold these non-reusable items. And make it so it will trap in the funk while in use. I drew up this roll bag idea with an external pocket to hold some essentials. Guess who had fun designing it, especially the logos 😬🙋🏽♂️. We both laughed and loved it.
It also works well for used dog-duty bags. I know I have had to carry a used dog 🐕 poop bag for a few miles and I was wishing those thin bags were more smell proof!
We think we came up with a decent/fun solution. The green pouch won’t have the logos seen on the blue for those of you who want to be more discrete in your carry. -different type of conceal carry 😆
I wondered if other parks had similar issues or if it was isolated to the Jackson Hole area. I called 3 other parks and 3 other parks pre-ordered. Yep, it’s pervasive. Please pack it out! (Or bury it if allowed)
We placed the following note on our packaging: With increased visitors use, it is important to minimize our impact to the great outdoors. If there are no toilet facilities nearby, pee or poo at least 200 feet (75 paces) away from water, camp, or trails. Use toilet paper sparingly and pack it out along with other sanitary items and use dog waste bags.
