    Bleu Paw's Dynamic Pet Product Launch to Make Picking Up Dog Poop a Breeze.

    The Versatile & Hygienic Bleu Paw Pet Product Will Put Fun into Collecting Pet Poop!


     Bleu Paw


    Today, Circle Products, Inc., the Miami-based consumer products innovator, has confirmed that the new Bleu Paw crowdfunding campaign will start a pet poop revolution on Kickstarter in, August 2017. With multiple applications, the cool gadget is the perfectly designed tool for dog owners who are sick and tired of using their hands to pick up poop after their pet. The innovative device also effortlessly collects pet hair with a smart sticky lint roller section.

    Made from durable plastic, the Bleu Paw works with every type of plastic bag on the market. A bag simply slides on and sticks to the sticky roller and easily pulls off when the user is ready to remove it and discard of the contents. This makes the product a clever way to keep walkways and the environment clean as more cities clampdown on negligent owners and animal waste. It also provides relief by putting an end to walking with a poop bag in hand until reaching a garbage can as users can lock the bag in the claws of the tool.

    "Bleu Paw was developed because I was tired of stepping in dog poop from owners who neglected to pick up after their pets near my home," explained, Vincent Smith, (CEO), Circle Products, Inc. "I figured, if I offered a better and less gross way to pick up poop - dog owners would love it. After all, it's never a pleasant experience picking up poop but our product makes it easier.”

     Bleu Paw


    Bleu Paw is set to transform a messy and disgusting task into a straightforward process for dog walkers, joggers and hikers with dogs, and parents with baby strollers and pets. The compact pooper scooper and high-quality lint roller readily clicks onto dog leashes, strollers, and pockets and is small enough to comfortably fit into backpacks.

    Bleu Paw delivers a quick, easy, and sanitary way to pick up pet deposits while keeping your hands and device from ever touching dog poop. It works with kitty litter too. Our ingenious gadget also easily collects pet hair from sofas, clothing, and car seats via a lint roller section. With superior design features, the Bleu Paw's compact 12-inch length makes it perfectly convenient to keep at home and in the car. Overall, we make picking up dog poop a less icky experience while keeping your city clean. In August, a limited number of Bleu Paw devices will be available on Kickstarter for just $10.

    Celebrities Say 'NO' to Wildlife Trafficking - Pierce Brosnan, Steven Tyler, Eddie Vedder, Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson, Bill Kreutzman, Mike Kroeger & More...


    Today, a group of celebrities published the following open-letter, asking the citizens of Hawaii to support a ban (SB 2647) on wildlife trafficking in the state. With New York and California (previously the largest US markets for wildlife trade) already recently passing similar bans, Hawaii (previously the 3rd largest market) now stands as the likely top market for the trade. Ending the trade in Hawaii is critical to ending the trade in the US and around the globe.

    Russell Simmons, Peta's Man of The Year, confirms that he has vowed to never allow fur to appear in any fashion editorial pictorials on his website, Global Grind.


    Mogul Russell Simmons, Peta's Man of The Year, has vowed to never allow fur to appear in any fashion editorial pictorials on his website, Global Grind. Simmons is proud to join the growing number of compassionate people who are saying no to fur. Eighty-five percent of the fur industry’s skins come from animals living captive in fur factory farms.

    lady in fur coat
    Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution (including anal and vaginal), gas, and poison.

    Animals who are trapped in the wild can suffer for days from blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. They may be caught in steel-jaw traps that slam down on their legs, often cutting to the bone; Conibear traps, which crush their necks with 90 pounds of pressure per square inch; or water-set traps, which leave beavers, muskrats, and other animals struggling for more than nine agonizing minutes before drowning. Global Grind stands in solidarity with PETA and other animal advocacy groups who are pushing for worldwide fur bans.

    “For as long as I run the company and hold the title of CEO of Global Grind I will make sure that we edit out any fur that appears in our fashion editorials. I see it as one part of doing a small part to do less harm and lift the consciousness of people on this planet" says Simmons.
