Klarna’s Doggy Bags is already available for online purchase at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC dog shelter. The company says all the earned income will be transferred to the shelter needs.

The Klarna Doggy Bag was inspired by the innovative takes on the MTA rules, where New Yorkers started carrying their dogs around in anything that just barely resembled “an enclosed container”. With this bag, our four-legged best friends not only get a proper, vet-approved bag to be carried around in – it is also the only shopping bag you’ll ever need – as the rest will be taken care of in the Klarna shopping app

The Doggy Bag will reportedly be equally appealing both to dogs and their owners, as it’s made of the soft faux fur, making pet’s transportation cozy. The carrier has dedicated pockets for metro cards or cellphones on the inside, making it handy for human use. The other side is developed with the dog’s needs in mind, including treat holders as well as a pocket for poop bags. The Doggy Bag has been designed together with Martin Bergström and a licensed veterinarian to ensure it meets the safety standards.
