Panda Poop profits Thai Zoo
Monday. 11.27.06 9:46 am
What do you you do with 55 pounds of panda poop? That is the combined amout of feces produced by chuang chuang and lin hui, the pandas at the Thai zoo. Prasertsak Buntragulpoontawee came up with the idea of turning it all into notebooks
and key chains.
These multicolored paper products have proven to be a hot selling item at the zoo. As of today the zoo has earned 8,200 helping to balance the accounts of keeping the pandas.
HOW IS THIS DONE??
Panda poop paper production involves a daylong process of cleaning the feces, boiling it in a soda solution, bleaching it with chlorine and drying it under the sun. Experimentation continues on how to reduce the chemicals now used.
IF SELLING POOP PAPER IS SUCH A SUCCESS WHY NOT SELL IT OUTSIDE OF THE ZOO?
"We tried selling it on markets outside but so far with not so much success," he says. "But in the zoo, when people see real pandas and then their product they're excited and buy."
You wont catch me buying any paper made out of feces. I dont care if you cleaned in boiling soda solution. ha ha.
