Review: Elephant Poop Journal-Admit it. You want to read this!

I recently visited the Oregon Zoo while my family was visiting.  My father used to work there so it was a nostalgic trip.  I hope to have a couple of pictures to share with you later.

Why yes!  Of course, we visited the tourist shop!

The Oregon Zoo is famous for it’s elephants and there was a whole line of journals, color books, stationery and more paper products made from…yup…elephant poop.  The paper products come from Mr. Ellie Poo, and they are the ultimate in recycled products, lol!  Elephant poop is almost pure cellulose, and the process completely sanitizes it, so there’s nothing icky about it.  (Okay.  Some people still get icked out.  My 9-year nephew wouldn’t touch any of the products, lol).

I’ve used Elephant poo paper before, but this was the first time I’d seen a journal.  And the journals are so cute! (Unfortunately, I don’t see the type I got on Mr Ellie Pooh’s site, just wirebound ones) .  There are some drawbacks.  The paper is very soft, which limits the media you can use–nothing sharp or wet.  Brush pens and gel pens work a treat, although the fiber content may clog some pens.  But, hey.  Elephant poop.  You are helping to save elephants when you buy these products.  And the art looks so cool when it’s done.

The journal has an adorable raised figure on the cover, and the paper inside comes in several different colors.  I love it.  Just love it.

I’ve only done one picture so far (the big elephant on yellow paper is from a flyer describing how the Elephant poop paper is made. You can find out more at Mr. Ellie Pooh’s site).

  1. Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is excellent, let alone the content!

    1. Wyatt, I meant to reply to you earlier, and then somehow forgot to actually do it. I apologize. The layout is one that WordPress provides, so I can’t really take credit for that–their selection of backgrounds and layouts is much better than bloggers! I always try to pick out neutral colors since I post so much of my work. I want something that won’t clash no matter what colors I use. Thank you for the compliment on my content. I try to post what interests me, and it is gratifying to find that it also interests others!
