By buying this product you are helping improve the outlook for the majestic elephants of Sri Lanka.
All the products in this range are made by skilled and creative artisans using elephant dung paper from the Maximus Elephant Conservation Trust. Elephant dung paper is the ultimate in recycling - it's made up of 75% dung and 25% recycled paper, with the elephants in charge of the pulping process of paper-making as they digest their food!
Maximus has its workshop in the grounds of the Millennium Elephant Foundation (MEF), a wonderful small charity that cares for sick, old and disabled elephants. The foundation is also working hard to resolve the conflict between elephants and local communities, a critical concern as the elephants' natural habitat decreases and they turn to eating farmers' crops.
Working with initiatives like Maximus, they are able to show the positive relationship local economies can have with these amazing animals - a simple example of this is that they pay villagers to collect the elephant dung which is used to make the paper.
By buying this product you will help the foundation continue its incredible work.
