A Big Pile Of Genius

Now this is a stinkin' good idea. This attractive journal and note paper box are actually made out of elephant poop! That's right, eco-friendly and innovative, this journal and note paper box are 100% recycled, odorless and, dare we say, quite lovely for a piece of a poo. Choose from a reusable note box filled 70 slips of paper or this 20 page journal with green elephant silhouette. Click here to read about how they turn poo into paper. Handmade in Thailand. Journal and Box of Notes sold separately.

TH

Made in Thailand

The making of paper starts with the collection and processing of the dung pulp. Elephant dung is typically full of short to medium grained fibrous materials from the elephant's diet which when processed make excellent paper. Panda poo has lots of undigested bamboo fibers (also a great fiber for paper-making). And cows and horses have a lot of undigested grass in their poo!

First, the naturally dried dung is collected from elephant and Giant Panda conservation parks and brought back to the paper-making factory.

Next, the dung is pre-rinsed with water, leaving only the fibrous materials from the grasses, bamboo and fruits they've eaten.

The fibers are placed into a giant pot of boiling water to ensure the fibers are super clean. After this thorough cleaning, the desired color can be added.

Natural fibers from banana trees and pineapples are added to the dung mixture so the paper will be thicker and stronger.

Once this is all mixed together, the moist fibers are separated into small "cakes" or "wafers" of about 300-400 grams each.

The cakes are spread evenly over a mesh-bottomed tray measuring about 60cm by 90cm.

The tray is leaned up against a tree, angled toward the sun and allowed to dry naturally for a few hours.

Once dry, the sheet of paper is peeled from the mesh tray.

                Comments about Elephant Poo Paper Journal & Note Box:

                This was a stocking stuffer for my young adult daughter. What originally drew me to the item was the elephants... an animal she loves. The fact that it was made out of elephant poo sealed the deal! While both of my girls got a kick out of it, they are environmental minded and appreciated this unordinary item.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I can't say enough about how quickly I receive my orders from your company. I have ordered twice now and both times the items were packed with extra care. Thank you!
