The Ghost Leash – A Dog Leash Made Of Ghost Net

The Ghost Leash is a dog leash made from 100% ghost net and waste fabric – plus a clip to secure your dog.

Handcrafted by artisans, each dog leash is unique and may vary slightly in colour and design. We ship to you with no frills, labels or unnecessary packaging to minimise the shipping carbon footprint. All profits go back to the community.

The Olive Ridley Project is on a mission to protect sea turtles and their habitats through rescue and rehabilitation of injured sea turtles, education and outreach, and scientific research.
