Yes, this Mr. Ellie Pooh paper is made from elephant poop. Dung from Sri Lankan elephants, to be precise, and that’s exactly why it’s such a fantastic product.

According to Mr. Ellie Pooh, approximately 10% of the 40,000 Asian elephants in the world call Sri Lanka their home. There, elephants are considered a nuisance, as they impinge on and interfere with local agriculture. Whereas in other parts of the planet, elephants are killed for their tusks, their meat or their hide, in Sri Lanka elephants are killed simply because they get in the way.

Mr. Ellie Pooh began creating paper from elephant dung to prove to the Sri Lankans that their elephants are a worthwhile commodity. Environmentalists will appreciate that since an adult elephant produces about 500 pounds of poop per day, Mr. Ellie Pooh’s paper products can be made sustainably without a single tree.
