Walking along the dog beach in Santa Barbara, Calif., Susan Davidson was disgusted by what she saw: People carrying plastic bags full of waste as they drank their morning coffee or stopped to chat with friends.

“It’s absolutely gross and totally unhygienic,” Davidson says. “I thought, there has to be a better way.”

To keep the bag out of sight (and out of mind), she created the PoopPac, a rigid, zippered case with a charcoal filter in one compartment that holds used bags, another to hold small personal items, and a bag dispenser on the outside.

She’s sold about 2,000 since she started her business in April 2010. It’s one of those things that people don’t know they need until they own it. And once they do? “People absolutely love it,” said Davidson.
