Paper Promotes Peace

Co-op America's 2008 Green Business Leader Award goes to a Brooklyn, NY, company, Mr. Ellie Pooh, which sells gift boxes, journals, and stationery made from Sri Lankan elephant dung and post-consumer paper. The award recognizes the extraordinary leadership efforts of one business that has used its position in the marketplace to organize consumers and businesses together to build a more socially just and ecologically sustainable economy.

The handmade products are 100% recycled. There are no toxic chemicals used in the papermaking process, only basic bonding agents such as alum and rosin, along with water-soluble salt dyes for coloring.
