A chair made out of Legos…a homemade net to catch t-shirts shot into the crowd at basketball games…a fun and environmentally friendly kids’ shampoo. Ever since I was little, I’ve always loved inventing things. I see a problem or an opportunity, and my mind starts working.
Now, as a high school student in Glencoe, Illinois, I’ve come up with an invention that makes walking your dog a lot more enjoyable. One day I was out with my pup, Rowdy, holding a bag of you-know-what, and I thought to myself,‘there’s got to be a better way.’ I came home, made a prototype out of leather cord, and the Poop Loop was born. Several versions later this handy leash accessory was ready for prime time, and dog-walking has never been the same.
As much as I like business, I also like giving back, and you’ll also be happy to know that when you buy a Poop Loop, you’re helping one of 5 great pet charities care for dogs who aren’t as fortunate as yours or mine.
Thank you for supporting Poop Loop. I’ll see you on the walk!
