TORONTO, Sept.8, 2012 – ScoopyBags supports the Canadian Cancer Society‘s Bark For Life dog-walk, with an online ‘Pet-Comics Contest’ and $4 donation from each product proceeds – http://scoopybags.com/pet_comics_contest.php .
Bark For Life is a fun walk, an event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society – supported through donations by event participants – http://www.cancer.ca/barktoronto .
ScoopyBags are manufactured in Canada by the Zohar Group (http://zoharplast.com) in partnership with Giant Step (http://giantstep.ca) and Michael Morris, President of the Social Strategy Group and cause-related-marketing consultant (http://socialstrategygroup.com). The eco-friendly bags are used as dog poop-bags, cat litter bags, and to lock-in baby diaper-odour.
“We are committed to supporting humanitarian and animal causes, providing the local alternative with respect to Canadian pet supplies. Our bags are manufactured in Canada and degrade much faster than regular plastic bags”, says Michael Morris.
In Scoopy’s exciting online Pet-Comics Contest, Canadians create comics using photos of their pets. The ‘most-voted’ entries win a year’s supply of poop-bags – powered by the ComicReply contest platform (http://comicreply.com – made possible with the support of the Canada Media Fund).
Buying locally helps support Canadian jobs and contributes a significant reduction of carbon and air pollution.
