Made with Poo

PooXIV

Looking for something fun and interesting to do around Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand)? I suggest you to go to the Elephant Poopoopaper park, an eco-friendly place where they make paper with elephant poo but also Thai buffalo poo, cow poo or horse poo.

Out of curiosity, my british friend Lucy and I went there an afternoon. We agreed to say we had such a lovely time and we were pleasanlty surprised by our little discovery.

A nice guide took us through eight different pavillons explaining each stage of the fascinating process. Do you want to understand how poo becomes paper? Follow me!

When the poo arrives, it has to be boiled to help the toxines reaching the surface. Then they have to wait for the poo to dry.

With this machine, they create balls made of clean poo-water-old paper and… food colouring (chemical free).

Interesting AND fun, I told you.
