Paper made from elephant poo

elephant dung paper

Yes! People often laugh when they first encounter the idea but everything from notebooks to cards is printed on the paper.
The original motivation behind  making elephant dung paper was because in Sri Lanka elephants are a problem particularly to the farmers, damaging farmers crops and fences.  Creating a market for their excrement has made them valuable to the local people and this now offers some protection to the animals.

Because elephants are vegetarian animals, their dung is pretty much just dried-out plants that are partially digested.
