Parks Victoria

The slogan "Healthy Parks Healthy People" on this "Australian made" bag is based on a false premise: that picking up your dogpoop will somehow make the park a better place.

In fact, the opposite could be true: by allowing your pooch to do its doings wherever it wants, you are contributing to the recycling on nutrients and the buildup of soil fertility - which will in turn lead to a healthy, biodiverse ecosystem.
