Elephant Poop is Green

Via on Apr 2, 2008

It turns out that money still doesn’t grow on trees, but for the owners of Mr. Ellie Pooh, it sprouts from piles of elephant dung. The company sells 100% handmade journals and paper products made from recycled elephant pooh, sourced from ele orphanages in Sri Lanka. They don’t use any chemicals or bleach in the paper making process and their pH value is perfect for preserving photos (so they won’t get yellow or sticky with age.) Plus, by paying for poop, Mr. Ellie Pooh provides extra income to elephant orphanages in Sri Lanka and stimulates the local economy there—proving that elephants are a species worth preserving and respecting. -HM
