Elephant dung paper is 100% recycled, and 100% odour and bacteria free. Not only does the project encourage tourism in the area, it also assists members of the community to generate an income and develop an appreciation for the protection of wildlife in the area.
Paper produced from elephant dung is simple, cost-effective and a great way to reuse natural resources. The project requires limited cash input due to the fact that there is a constant supply of ‘product’ in the area, the manufacturing tools are uncomplicated and the project is easy to maintain.
Proceeds from the sale of the paper go towards the improvement and maintenance of the wildlife close by.
We now make dung paper cards in various designs with incorporated indigenous seeds inside. After reading and using the card, you can bury it in the ground for the seeds to grow!
