How can designers make choices to positively impact the environment?

Students inquired and analysed the negative impact of plastic waste, eco myths, and invasive species, along with possible solutions designers can implement to practice sustainability. 

In this semester long series of investigations, students developed ideas as they learned a few methods of weaving, including: plaiting, random weave, stake and strand, and coil. To construct a logical plan, students used repurposed materials and harvested invasive species on campus in their weaving. 

Designing with global awareness develops sustainable practices to find innovative solutions.
