Five things you can do with poop

#1 Poo paper

Yes, you heard me correctly. Paper made from poo. Poo paper can be made from a variety of animal excrement including, sheep, cow, elephant and even panda poo.

Here is a notebook made from elephant poo

Sheep poo envelopes

and finally greeting cards made from Panda poo

There are even instructional videos on making poo paper

Celebs are in on it too

#2 Jewelry

I thought people were joking, but then I came across this:

Don't they look nice. Well, these are moose poo earrings. And there is more...

Koala poo earrings

Reindeer poop necklace

Or if you're really classy
Gold plated koala poop earrings

#3 Lip Balm

 Alaska sells a variety of Moose poop products including Moose nugget lip chap; a lip balm made from Moose poo. 

#4 Toilets and Energy?

Virginia Gardiner a sustainable designer  has recently launched the LOOWatt, a toilet designed entirely of poo.

According to her website:

The LooWatt aims to solve this global sanitation crisis by creating an entirely new waste disposal infrastructure. The composting toilet is molded from 90% horse dung, and features a biodegradable lining that stores excrement in a sealed, odor-free container. Once the toilet is full, the user takes the poo package to an outdoor biodigestor, which in exchange provides a free source of biofuel for cooking.

An interview with the designer:

Taking recycling to the next level


  1. I know about most of the stuff you mentioned, heck, I even own a elephant poo notebook that I bought in Sri Lanka but a moose poo lip balm, who would use it, besides Sarah Palin?

  2. Apparently its meant to be a novelty item (I seriously hope no one is using it). It comes with the slogan "it won't heal your lips but it sure keeps you from licking them". It also comes with a disclaimer: Do not eat, just in case you weren't sure about that.

  3. Thanks for the hilarious info. I linked it with my blog.
