We discovered paper made out of elephant poop.
Yep, ELEPHANT POOP!
We immediately fell in love with the gorgeously textured paper and have used it for packaging as well as for displaying our pieces at exhibitions.
As everyone naturally does, we know you’re wondering, so we’ll tell you not to worry, it is completely and utterly odorless. You’d never guess! Here’s an explanation on how it can be done from POOPOOPAPER™, a cool online store specializing in all sorts of paper made from all sorts of animal poop.
“Here’s the scoop: these fiber-eating animals eat lots of grass and vegetation everyday and they poop almost as much. Since the digestive systems of these specific animals don’t really break down the vegetation all that well, their poop has plenty of fiber even after their meal is consumed. Knowing that fibers are the base material used in making pulp for paper production (albeit tree fibers typically), we figured there was a high probability that making pulp and quality paper from poop was not only achievable but that the case for poop as an alternative fiber source to tree-based pulp was a compelling one!”
PLAYFULLY OUTRAGEOUS WITH A SERIOUS UNDERLYING MESSAGE OF SUSTAINABILITY!
