Conscious paper offers wonderful environmentally friendly packaging to sustainable brands and those who wish to make a difference. Their cruelty-free solutions comprise of 2 alternatives:
I) Seed Paper is handmade from seeds and cotton. It is made from pre-consumer cotton material and embedded with seeds. When you plant the paper in the soil, the cotton will start decomposing itself in the soil and the seeds will start to germinate and slowly become a plant.
ii) Elephant Dung Paper is sourced from the rural villages of Sri Lanka. It is 100% handmade from post consumer paper waste, elephant dung and other waste materials such as banana bark, paddy straw etc. One may argue that this is not vegan in its purest sense (elephant dung is an animal by-product after all) but if we can put to good use something that the animal leaves behind- it is worth the cause, right?
