Welcome to Mr. Ellie Pooh LLC
"WE CAN LIVE GREEN"
Mr. Ellie Pooh LLC is an eco-friendly Fair Trade company making
exotic gifts and paper made partially out of elephant poo!
Elephants in Sri Lanka are being killed at an alarming rate.
Humans are encroaching on elephant habitats and cutting
down trees. When elephants come looking for food, they are
shot and killed.
Our mission is to reduce some of the Human/Elephant conflict that is ongoing.
We plan to open handmade paper facilities in rural areas, train local villag
ers to make paper, and hire artisans to embellish our goods. We believe that this
newly created industry can directly contribute to the local economy. Our hopes
are that such an initiative will self educate the villagers into living, working and r
especting the elephants. With this new mindset, our gentle giants can blossom into
a cultural asset rather then a local threat.
According to “The State of the Paper Industry (2007)” a report by the Environmental
Paper Network, 50% of the world's forests have been cleared or burned, and 80% of
what's left has been seriously degraded. If the United States cut office paper use by
just 10% it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases --
the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road.
Compared to using virgin wood, paper made with 100% recycled content uses 44%
less energy, produces 38% less greenhouse gas emissions, 41% less particulate
emissions, 50% less wastewater, 49% less solid waste and -- of course -- 100%
Mr. Ellie Pooh’s paper products are 100% recycled. They are made up of 50% fiber
from elephant dung and 50% post consumer paper. There are no toxic chemicals
used in our paper making process. Natural vegetative binding agents, along with
water-soluble salt dyes for coloring are used. Mr. Ellie Pooh’s papers are
handmade, acid free and as organic as it gets.
