Company Uses Elephant Dung for Eco-Friendly Paper Products

Instead of cutting down tons of trees to manufacture paper, a new organization is utilizing something completely revolutionary: animal poop.

Though it sounds zany and quite messy, in this case the whole paper-making process is quite the opposite. That’s because elephants have diets high in fiber, which makes for easy paper making. Once the poo is harvested and dried out, what’s left is mostly digested grass and leaves.

“As with all creatures on our planet, elephants need a clean environment and a good diet,” explains the Poo Poo Paper website. “With these needs met, an elephant produces a lot of dung, which we collect and use to make our products. The more we sell…the more we can contribute…to elephant welfare and conservation programs!”

To find out more about this, uh, interesting method, watch the video below.
