GVS earth positive black tote bag, organic cotton with the Cow/Dog image and website printed on one side. Printed with vegan ink.
The image features a young highland cow/young Scottish terrier dog and is from a drawing by Scottish artist Eloise Kerr which she kindly donated to GVS. The image presents two different species together, as one, and highlights how we treat both species so differently but yet in their desire to live they are both the same.
