Travel Experience

Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park is an eco-friendly, naturally built, outdoor museum park that introduces and explains the unique steps involved in making our much talked about paper products from elephant poop fibres. The interpretive walking tour through our lush gardens brings visitors through eight different pavilions explaining each stage of our fascinating process from poo collection to rinsing to final product assembly. Visitors are encouraged to pull up a stool, roll up their sleeves and join together with our talented artisans and guides and participate in our head-turning process. The Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park gift shop, also known as “The Poo-tique”, is unquestionably the most incredible souvenir and gift shop in the world dedicated to gifts made from poo! Creatively merchandised, visitors are certain to find that distinctive and unique gift to take or send home.

Responsibility

Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park offers a genuinely innovative, entertaining, informative, eco-friendly experience to visitors - one that is uniquely Thai. A commitment to both the planet and the people are at our core. We believe in pursuing the middle way - where we can balance care for the natural environment and the people and communities we work with, together, with our commercial pursuits. The very nature of the products exemplifies the efforts being made to try and utilize ecologically responsible production methods and techniques that are sustainable including: 1. No trees have been cut to produce POOPOOPAPER™ papers. POOPOOPAPER™ papers are tree-free and do not integrate wood-pulp based materials. Save the trees! 2. The POOPOOPAPER production process uses no chlorine or bleach. That's right - chemical-free - unlike mass-produced papers that are common in everyday life. 3. POOPOOPAPER is coloured with edible food colouring and not synthetic inks. 4. All graphics and printing on our finished products utilize soy-based inks. 5. All waste papers and trimmings left over from our production process is re-pulped and integrated into a new sheet or roll of paper 6. POOPOOPAPER products are memorable and attention-grabbing and a fantastic medium to leverage in order to convey the important message of conservation and sustainability.

Business Case

Elephant POOPOOPAPER Park adheres fair trade principles. The company pays decent wages and fulfils its legal and financial obligations as an employer with social security contributions into the government-backed retirement savings plan, unemployment insurance plan as well as comprehensive health care coverage programs. We make available interest-free loans to team members if requested and offer either free or heavily subsidized accommodations on a first-come-first-serve basis to any team member interested. We operate a flex-work, cottage-based, production framework in Thailand where many of the artisans (mostly female) have the opportunity to work at home with the flexibility to also attend to their traditional farming, household or family responsibilities. Incomes generated often enhance a traditionally agriculture-based family income.
