The process of making elephant dung paper is a little different to making handmade paper!
The fibres are pulped by the elephant, instead of by hand or machine, whilst digesting, then comes out the back!
Elephant dung is collected and then vigorously boiled with margosa
leaves, which are a natural disinfectant, then made into paper after
mixing with 25% recycled paper.
and shade of the elephant dung paper is entirely dependent on the
elephants diet making each sheet unique. We source or paper from the
Maximus Elephant Conservation Trust in Sri Lanka, they have their
workshop on the grounds of the Millennium Elephant Foundation which is
a charity that cares for sick and disabled elephants.
We are promoting this elephant dung paper, as the more people buy, the
more we order, the more money the elephants get. We are helping to
educate rural villages that are plagued by elephant eating crops, after
their natural habitats have been taken over by humans, to see elephants
as a form of income and not just as a pest. The
Sri Lankan villagers get paid for collecting Elephant dung therefore
giving them a reason to live with rather than against the elephants.By
buying this product you can give yourself a pat on the back as you are
helping to preserve the lives of these majestic creatures
