I call this my special Poo Book. Its a lovely red and is a gift from a loved one. Its still wrapped in plastic. Haven't written anything on it yet. Just want to keep it like this for a while. It should be filled soon.

Why Poo Book?

This book is made from 75% elephant dung and paddy paper. Don't worry. It doesn't even smell :) Its perfected in Sri Lanka from Maximus.

A short detail of how the product is made.
  1. Elephant eating
  2. Elephant pooing
  3. Boil the poo
  4. Pulp it
  5. Walla... and you have paper

There is a bigger story behind this book. Maximus is the BBC World Challenge 2006 Winner.

Its also about conservation and saving the Elephas Maximus. Hopefully this “Elephant Dung” paper will help to provide a sustainable environment for man and elephant for a long time. Both will in sing in harmony and a beautiful relationship will co-exist.

Variations in the elephant’s diet, age and dental state give each batch of paper a unique colour and texture. Colour varies with the type of food consumed: Coconut, Kitul or Jak. Texture depends on whether the Elephant is able to chew the food or not. Fully digested fibre gives the paper a smooth finish while half digested fibre makes the paper coarser. (excerpt from Maximus)

I wonder how old was the elephant and what it ate to give me a beautiful red book. I love my poo book. Thank you Stormy! Happy trails to you.

Dis reminds me of the Pandas poo-poo they sell as souvenirs in China.

I wonder if can make paper from Koala's dung...

Anny said...

Yep! Elephant Poo it is :D

I kinda think that Elephant Poo dun really smell as much as human poo.. because they eat lotta trees, bark.. fibrous materials.. so it shouldn't smell too much :)

koala poo? but koalas dun poo that much.. hehhehe

Camel poo can't be found. Seems that camels are also good in storing poo as they are in storing water (actually stored fats)
