ELEPHANT DUNG PAPER
REALLY: IT DOES NOT STINK!
Elephants eat enormous amounts: up to 250 kg per day are needed to fill an elephant. On the other hande, it is never enough to eat, which is why constant eating is necessary. Not only that, they are also – for pure herbivores – poor feeders. In contrast to ruminants, enormous amounts are also excreted again – about 60% of the daily fodder are transformed into elephant tailings. This is normal and yet it can challenge elephant camps. Where to go with all this – yes, literally: crap? We have decided to turn a small part into something useful together with you as our guests.
Paper made from elephant branch paper is coarse and does not stink. It can be used without problems for small things of everyday life.
Whether as a notebook, photo book, key fob, postcard or hair band – the possibilities are huge and can always be widened.
We show you the development process on site in all work steps and invite you to try it out yourself.
