Asian Elephants are beautifully majestic creatures. But in Sri Lanka they are often a source of intense anxiety as a single family unit can consume a human family's entire crop for the year leaving the humans destitute. This is where Ellie Pooh Journals come in!
Rather than cutting down trees to make pulp for paper, in Sri Lanka, humans and elephants are working together to elevate the humans out of subsistence farming and take care of the elephants at the same time. By harvesting the elephant droppings, they have a ready made product which can be recycled into paper. This process provides a cash incentive to care for and collaborate with elephants, rather than fear them.
