These Small Dog Poo Pins Show People Where They Need to Tidy Up

Stephen McCarthy has created 'Poo Pins' in an effort to shed light on people who don’t pick up their dog's poop. McCarthy's invention is a small pin that can be placed on the doggy doo-doo to let other people know which areas to avoid stepping or biking through.

The pins are made of a biodegradable rock material. When they are left in the sun for an extended period of time they will simply disintegrate. This makes them eco-friendly, causing no harm or litter to the earth.

The Poo Pins are designed to make light of the not-so-enjoyable experience. The dog poop pins have humorous text on them such as "It’s big and brown, don’t leave it hanging around." The Poo Pin creators have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their project with hopes that this will help keep parks and streets clean of left behind dog poop.
