For my project I have created a collection of dog harnesses highlighting the environment and the sea. I choose the animal turtles as when going to Sri Lanka in 2018 I saw the effect of a turtle who had eaten too much plastic and wanted to incorporate it into my project about how plastic can be reduced in dog products.

When doing environmental research, I was inspired by how we can reduce plastic in products and looked at how we can reduce the plastic in dog products and recycle the products. When looking at materials I looked at environmentally friendly material where I found the most sustainable material is cotton and bamboo material. For the clips and attached parts would be made from recycled plastic. In my outcome I wanted to combine some different techniques and material I have learnt throughout my project this includes using lino and using ink and shaving foam.
