Mr Ellie Pooh Notebook
Through the purchase of this artisan product, you are helping support thousands of artisans and families all over the world.
This notebook made up of 30% fiber from elephant dung and 70% recycled paper.
Mr. Ellie Pooh Notebook's are made from artisans in Sri Lanka.
Through Fair Trade Principles, Mr. Ellie Pooh provides sustainable papermaking and artisan jobs in Sri Lanka. These jobs help build support of the local communities and are essential to conservation efforts.
The unique method of papermaking directly contributes to the local economy. Mr. Ellie Pooh ensures that all villagers are trained to make these products; they are educated to live among (and respect) the elephant in an area where humans and elephants often conflict. In this way elephants can be viewed as an economic asset, rather than a liability.
