Dr Marc Dussault, The Exponential Growth Strategist recently sent us the video clip below that reveals the latest technological innovation in Dog Poo Waste Management from the USA. It's what he does for his clients, making sure they remain on top of the latest innovations.
The Americans have pioneered Dog DNA testing and are now commercializing it. The company is called PooPrints, and they have established a dog waste management system that involves the DNA testing of dog poo found in the community to identify the canine culprits (and their misbehaved owners) responsible for the mess.
The PooPrints DNA Testing Waste Management System
Will this type of dog poo management system ever make its way over to Australia?
But one thing is certain, responsible dog owners need to pick up the poo after their pet!

Dog Poo waste bags from Maxpak are used in public parks and gardens across Australia.
Plastic film is just plastic film, right? Wrong. Whilst different plastic films or bags may share the same specifications - they can be sourced from vastly different feed stock which can vastly affect end quality.
How bad can it get? Well, in a worse case scenario - some Chinese film manufacturers have perfected the art of reducing costs by using contaminated medical waste in their plastic films. In particular, Chinese factories have a documented history of sourcing raw feedstock that originates from a variety of undesirable and dangerous sources.
It is well known that during the SARS (Avian Flu) outbreak of 2004, that plastic protective equipment (e.g. face masks, test tubes) were disposed of as "normal" garbage and subsequently recycled for use in plastic bags and food containers.
This scandalous practice was suspected of prolonging the 2004 SARS outbreak, and it still continues today as Chinese hospitals find economic benefit in selling waste material to unscrupulous "recyclers" rather than pay for proper medical waste disposal. This is one way to reduce costs significantly, but has potentially catastrophic consequences, if an end user of the product were to become sick, contaminated or the source of an outbreak. It is a well known problem to Chinese Authorities
Further references to this practice were reported late in 2010 by China Central Television. Examples of this have occurred with both FOOD and non - food contact products.
This is one reason why Maxpak is committed to exercising maximum effort, care and control over raw material sourcing activities. All of our raw materials are sourced from trusted, long term supply partners - the majority of whom are outside the People's Republic of China.
