Elephant Dung Paper:
After collection, Elephant Dung is washed and boiled to remove pathogens and undigested plant material. It's then blended to a pulp with office waste paper and spread out to dry, as in traditional paper making processes.
Maximus in Sri Lanka saw both the need for employment in rural areas and for the conservation of the endangered Sri Lankan elephant and started producing elephant dung paper in 1997 employing just 7 people. Today this Fair Trade and sustainable company employs more than 200 people. The production of the paper directly contributes to the villager’s income and a percentage of the profits go to the Millennium Elephant Foundation which provides a home for ex-working and orphaned elephants, holiday care for working elephants as well as a mobile veterinary service.
