Fitting for my day.

August 9, 2010

Eco-Freaky, Lauren

I came home tonight to a package in the mail. I thought it might be something I was expecting from a relative, but no – it was from Peggy! Woo-hoo!!

Upon opening, it was a darling package of scratch paper. I adore homemade paper – my sister used to make it, y’know.

Beautiful! Say, they’re recycled! Wow! But…. what’s that…..?

Poo?!?! Poo?!?! (Flip.)

I love elephants, and now feel so much closer to them.

HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! It’s paper made from elephant poo!!! I burst out laughing. Seriously, after my day, it was hilarious to have something lovely come out of poo.

It says, and I quote,

“With all the concern these days about deforestation and the need to recycle, our products are a fantastic example of sustainability and responsible consumption. We take a material in abundance, ELEPHANT POO, and make functional and completely useful products all the while sparing lots of trees in the process.

That’s right. Here’s the scoop! ELEPHANTS eat lots of grass everyday and they poo almost as much! Since their digestive systems don’t really break down the grass all that well, their poo has plenty of fiber! Seeing as though grass is fiber and fiber is the base material used in making pulp for paper, well, we figured we could probably use it to make our ELEPHANT POOPOOPAPER!

“Two Bums Up!” ”

Peggy, you are more awesome than Brad on his half-birthday!

Heh heh - grass bits.

    It’s awesome. This probably isn’t the same company, but here’s an educational video. (That’s my PSA for today.)
