With 250gsm thickness, and fibrous off-white in appearance, this card is suitable for most printers. Ellie Poo paper is manufactured from 75% UK post consumer waste and 25% dung, from the Sri Lankan elephant. The dung is collected, cleaned up and turned into pulp by the local population, and 5% of all profits are reinvested back into the country, to provide skills training, local employment, education, and other support to the villagers. Tensions between Sri Lankans and the local elephants are high, as the elephants are notorious for destroying crops - the Ellie Poo Paper Company provides an economic incentive for the elephants' conservation, with only up to 3,000 left in the wild. The card itself is treated using non-chlorine methods to remove all bacteria, and is manufactured in Hemel Hempstead, using the heritage steam-driven 'Fourdrinier' machine at Frogmore Mill: the world's first mechanised paper-making machine dating back to 1895, and still in use today.
Sold in packs of 50 sheets.
