Interesting Idea

Want some unique stationery? Try Ellie Pooh!

Yes indeedy--paper made from elephant poop. From what I've seen from my visits to the zoo, there is certainly rather enough of it to go around.

Hmmm....just checked out the website and found out that:

"On average, an adult elephant produces about 180-200 kg (500 lbs) of [dung] per day."

So I was right about there being enough of it. My, my.

This company gets snaps for trying to think of an economic solution to the growing People vs Elephant problem in Sri Lanka. Not sure if they've picked exactly the right solution, but I do like the pro-capitalist thinking.
