When we say elephant paper, what we really mean is elephant poo paper!! It’s collected, boiled, dried and disinfected and then pulped together to make a soft-touch fibrous paper. Then it’s transformed into an amazing range of notebooks, photo albums and frames.
Not only are these products fairly traded, they’re also great for the environment and for the elephants themselves. The Maximus paper company at the Millennium Elephant Foundation in Kegalle at the foothills of Sri Lanka’s beautiful central mountainous region works to conserve the Sri Lanka elephant (Elephus Maximus), help create a sustainable local economy and to address the conflict over land between man and the wild elephants.
Elecosy are working to bring this quirky products to a far wider audience and we’re really proud to be part of that!
