Animal excrement to make paper

El paper It is one of the products with the highest demand in the world due to the wide uses it has in the daily lives of millions of people.

The paper industry is one of the most responsible for indiscriminate felling de forests all over the planet. It is estimated that approximately 90.000 square km of forestry are destroyed each year to make paper.

It is considered the litter bins one of the most polluting industries in the world.

Recycling and using other raw materials to make paper can be the solution to prevent further destruction of forests.

A creative raw material for making paper is the one developed by the Poo Poo company that uses animal droppings.

This initiative began to use elephant waste, but manure from pandas, horses, cows, giraffes and other animals that consume a large amount of vegetation in their diet can also be used.

The process is quite simple since first the waste is allowed to dry, then in a traditional way the waste is separated from the vegetable fibers that are then compacted to make thin sheets of paper. Which has no smell and is also totally biodegradable.

This company reuses animal waste protected reserves, zoos and farms to ensure a good volume of excrement.

The Poo Poo company offers more than 150 products made with this totally ecological paper such as notebooks, cards, among others.

In addition, this company collaborates with organizations for the protection of wild animals by donating part of their sales.

This sustainable idea is really ecological and although this method will not be able to supply the paper needs worldwide if it can collaborate in reducing the pressure on forests.

Support this kind of organic products it is something that as consumers we can do.

The more natural the products and the more sustainable the production processes, the more the environment will be taken care of.
