EPWN seeks knowledge to inform efforts to reduce pet waste to landfill. Our volunteers investigate, experiment, discover and interpret available information to help support individuals and communities that want to repurpose pet waste.

There are limited large, well-designed, science-based studies with definitive answers. The good news is that there are a wide variety of examples where the work of others can help guide people interested in this field.


New reports, trials and information are becoming available as people around the world engage in the United Nations net zero efforts to halt dangerous climate change (add link to UN here).

This information can be useful in making a case for re-purposing dog and cat poop in eco-friendly ways in your community. You can refer to them when considering a project, applying for grants, or advocating for public funding, policy or regulation changes.
