PawPail Receives Good Design Award
Good Design, a global awards program for design excellence, honored PawPail in the pet products category.
The PawPail pet waste station is a system that discreetly dispenses oxo-biodegradable pet waste bags. It then stores the pet waste in an environmentally-conscious way while managing odors. PawPail's patented design controls odors in two ways: using an activated carbon air filter to trap harmful chemicals and patented DualVent technology to facilitate air flow through the container.
"PawPail is meant to complement the architectural features of a property without drawing attention to itself," said Michael Harakal, PawPail's founder and CEO. "...With this product, we wanted a design that was modern and minimalist, one that didn't conform to the traditional look of our competitors."
Sustainability was a key consideration of PawPail's design. It has a reusable inner basket that eliminates the need for liner garbage bags that most waste cans require, potentially removing countless tons of plastic waste from landfills every year.
"Reducing plastic waste was an important design consideration," said Harakal. "Additionally, PawPail is manufactured with durable, commercial-quality UV- and weather-resistant materials that can sustain any harsh climate condition."
