By recent estimates,  there are now more than 84 million dogs taking up residence in the United States today.  Collectively,  these pooches deposit upwards of 62.7 million lbs of waste every day and 22.9 trillion lbs of waste every year  -  the vast majority of which is left sitting in backyards across America.
Unbeknownst to many,  dog poop is more than just a gross an unsightly mess with a penchant for ruining your day (and shoes)  -  it’s an environmental pollutant and a human health hazard.  When left unscooped,  waste sitting in backyards eventually breaks down and washes into the water supply,  polluting our rivers,  streams,  creeks and other local waterways.
Founded by the team at DoodyCalls, the Doody-Free Water Project works with communities to raise awareness about the environmental impact of pet waste;  to centralize pet waste related news,  resources and information from around the web;  and to expand public access to pet waste bags in cities and towns across the United States.
