Some of the comments on facebook about using a leaf as Gus’ Pooper Scooper reminded me of the leaf plates we ate off of in Bolpur, India.
A man in the village purchased a machine that creates, disposal plates out of leaves. He started out small but now has a business where he employs other people in the village to make the Leaf Plates.
They’re completely biodegradable, work really well even with all those delicious Indian sauces, and are beautiful too. He makes them for people to use at big events like wedding and parties.
Of course eating off a plate is very different from using it to clean up puppy poop, but it’s the same idea. And who knows maybe it inspired me.
