In 2023 a number of organizations, including media outlets, contacted EPWN for information on how to manage pet waste sustainably. The most common questions related to pet waste composting safety, good vs. bad pick-up bags, community-wide solutions, environmental hazards, contradictory messages and regulations.
These interviews and speaking requests gave EPWN co-founder Rose Seemann a chance to get out the word on the environmental impact of current pet waste disposal practices. Here are links to the latest podcasts, articles and presentations.
