Paper made from elephant poo ? Yes! People often laugh when they first encounter the idea but everything from notebooks to cards is printed on the paper. ( yes, the poo is treated as part of the paper-making process.)

The original motivation behind Elephant Dung Paper was that in Sri Lanka they’re considered a problem particularly to the farmers. Creating a market for their excrement made them valuable to the local people and this now offers some protection to the animals. Because elephants are vegetarian animals, their dung is pretty much just dried-out plants that are partially digested,.
High quality, handmade eco-friendly elephant dung paper and paper products manufactured by Maximus under the peace paper plan can be bought through . By purchasing these products, you are not only helping the environment by saving a tree but you are also contributing to the care of the endangered Sri Lankan elephant.
