Elephant Dung Tied Journal
Fair Trade. Sustainable. Non-toxic.
Beautiful journal tied with ribbon makes a sweet gift or inspiring journal. It is made with elephant dung! Luckily it doesn't smell like it! The paper is soft and inviting to write on.
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.
