The team devised a 12-week project to trial green waste collection at their local dog park, survey dog owner attitudes, behaviors and poo practices, and educate pet owners about compostable bags and home composting.

In collaboration with Alexandrina Council, compostable dog bag were provided at the park along with a dedicated poo bin, picked up weekly by a green organic truck.
