I had been complaining that I've been having a hard time trying to find gifts that are responsibly produced and "green". Then today - after all of my shopping was completed (of course) - I stumbled across the most interesting website with the best gift ideas ever ... Ellie Poo! Paper products made from elephant dung collected mainly from elephant orphanages from Sri Lanka (and then distributed by Mr Ellie Pooh.) Doesn`t get much greener than that. They have a wonderful collection of handmade journals, stationary, scrapbook/photo albums and paper.
Hits all my hot buttons: eco friendly, environmentally sustainable, "green" environmentally conscious company.
Definitely something to keep in mind for next year. And it reinforces that old adage -- when life hands you poo, make pooper -- paper!
