    1. Its made of elephant's dung, but elephants eats plants so I think its not that dirty. I admire this kind of cause :D

  2. Yes, this is done here in India too.
    I think it is a great usage of waste, we must promote this more.

  3. That is a very strange way of reusing elephant poo. My question is if the money gathered from the selling of these items are going anywhere towards protecting the elephants.

  5. This is strange, I've never heard of that before. However,I think it's a really good way to gather money (if the money gathered is used for elephants). I like the idea! I'd definitely buy one as I love elephants! I don't know if I'd wear it often though... But love the idea!

    1. They sais they need to let it super dry for days to weeks and the smells disappear. They also mix a certain solution to dissolve the dung scent.

  11. The famous French saying "nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed" definitely makes sense here. I think poopoopaper is interesting. Do the notepad is entirely made of poopoopaper? If so, it would be a nice thing to expand the idea and print books out of poopoopaper instead of trees!

    1. Yes notepads are made of dung too. Ah everything is recycled. A great way to save our trees!

  12. Okay, I admit they all look colorful and the names, like poopaper and poo gems are super cute, but this is still elephant poo... Not sure I'd gift it to anyone, but I'd probably get some for myself. Too weird not to have :D

    1. LOL yeah I understand the OC part.. but you can't buy and make these as natural fertilizers. You just dug it deep in your garden to make your soil more healthy.

  13. A fantastic concept of recycling and adding to the economy. I have a notebook brought from Thailand for me the texture feels strange. Did you buy anything?

    1. I think the stationeries are much cooler because when these became scratch and thrown away, it is easy to dissolve and goes back to the soil.

  16. This is quite an interesting product! I'd be a little hesitant but intrigued by it at the same time.

  21. In India we are using the same concept since years even in my childhood I used to do my Maths practice on recycled pages. Its'a good environmental friendly initiative, here on special occasion we use beautiful envelopes of vibrant colors with sprinkled flower petals on all over it.

    1. Hello Priyanka,

      I agree we also do that in school (many years ago).
      I'm not sure if this technique is still teaches in school. It is ideal that we should teach kids how to recycle.

  22. Hey, I have been to this place when I was in Chiang Mai in June this year. It was quite interesting to see the whole process and indeed a new way of creating products from recycling poop.
