Import Ants

Import Ants create paper products made of elephant dung and post-consumer waste paper in Sri Lanka. Traditionally, people and elephants often competed over land resources in Sri Lanka, which according to Import Ants, resulted in injuries on both sides. However, the production of their paper from elephant dung has contributed to the income of villagers in Sri Lanka, as well as having created a link between their income and the survival of the elephants.

For children, they have a range of cute workbooks and journals, just to name a couple.
