Paper Made From Elephant Dung and 100% Post Consumer Waste

Eco-printed products company, Pixxlz is thinking of changing their tag line from “We Print Green” to “Our Product Is Crap.” After much research and testing on their various eco-friendly printing presses, Pixxlz has found a paper that is not comprised of one single tree; it’s made from elephant dung. “Not only is it fun to talk about,” says Pixxlz President, Lindsey Burkhardt, “but it looks great too.”

Affectionately dubbed, “Poohper,” Mr. Ellie Pooh is a valued alternative to expensive hand-made papers and prints very well on Pixxlz’ digital and soy ink presses. Currently available in an array of colors in various cover and card stocks, Pixxlz new paper is perfect for invitations, holiday cards and announcements.

There are no toxic chemicals used in the paper-making process, only basic bonding agents such as alum and rosin, along with water soluble salt dyes for coloring. Free of bleach and acids, no alkaline solutions are introduced during manufacturing. These handmade papers are of an ideal pH value for photography preservation: perfect for Pixxlz’ new mini photo books.elephant-dung-paper-finished

Pixxlz also offers paper industry leader Mohawk’s 30%-100% Post Consumer Waste (PCW) on every printed products order.

Made from 100% recycled materials and manufactured with renewable energy, these FSC certified, carbon neutral papers are a welcome addition to the green standards Pixxlz adheres to.(Source-MarketWatch)

Just for the record, Cartridge World San Diego does not employ elephants in its ink and laser remanufacturing processes.
