Hygienic (touch-free!), eco-friendly and convenient dog waste bags. www.poopooh.com
It all started with Romeo, who came to us in December 2012. My husband and I loved everything about him except the poo picking.
We didn’t like the warm squishy feeling when picking up using plastic bags. Then we read that plastic bags actually have micro-pores in them - which means bacteria can pass through onto our hands. Gross!
On top of that when the garbage bins in our city would get over full, pet owners would pile the bags next to the bins and all that plastic really made us think about the impact on the environment. Just between Romeo and his sister, Rosie, we would be using nearly 1500 plastic bags per year!
So we set out to design a bag that we would be excited about using and voila, poopooh was born! Our bags are not only better for the environment and for the hygiene of users, but they also help people in rural communities. Why is that? When we thought about how we would manufacture our bags, we also tried to make a social venture out of this. To that end, all our bags are hand made by women working from their own homes in Sri Lanka so they can provide for their families without having to leave them for long periods of time. So, in addition to solving our poo picking problem we also feel really good about the impact we are having on the lives of the people who produce each and every poopooh bag.

Grounds For Sculpture, a 42 acre sculpture park in New Jersey, published an educational piece twice a year called the family guide. It was a supplemental hand out intended to engage families at exhibitions. I redesigned the piece to be a tri-fold and added custom illustrations, making it more dynamic and easier to handle.
I also co-created with Aylin Green the GFS coloring book which featured my illustrations.
