The Exotic Paper Company

Recycled paper with a difference

Who are we...

We are a small family run company based just outside Langport in Somerset, specialising in the supply of 100% recycled papers, paper products and poo planters. The company started life in 2005 as a hobby based out of a garage.

An ethical and eco-friendly company who make 100% recycled paper, card and envelopes here in the UK, including handmade, plantable seeded papers and petal papers as well as other unusual inclusion papers like Ellie Poo TM paper, grass paper, denim paper, bank note paper, etc. These papers make unique and beautiful yet responsible invitations, order of services, place names, thank yous, etc.

Choose from our normal Ellie Poo or Rhino Poo paper or inclusion papers and boards, or why not go for something completely different and make your invitations out of one of our handmade seeded papers, which can then be planted by your guests.

Why not look at our selection of petal paper bags, a great idea to leave on the tables for your female guests. We also now stock sheets of petal paper in an A4 size or the larger 70 x 50cms size. Also in this range we have DL sized petal paper envelopes, which will match these papers.

For our recycled paper products we use post consumer waste collected from schools and businesses in the UK. None of our papers contain any bleaches or detergents. Our mill, based in Hemel Hempstead dates back to 1803 and promotes and educates schools and other enterprises on sustainable living.

Everything we produce is 100% recycled, and contains no bleaches or detergents. We are approved by NAPM (National Association of Paper Merchants) to the highest 100% level. Our details are also logged on Sedex which is the fairtrade wholesalers database.

Why do we supply elephant dung paper?

Elephants are used as working animals around the world and after their usefulness has ended due to injury or old age, they become a burden and are disgarded.  We support the Millennium Foundation in Sri Lanka who then look after them.

Charlie Says...

"This beautiful selection of alternative eco papers is great for those who want something a bit more light-hearted for their wedding. The thought of paper made from reindeer poo or elephant dung always makes me smile, but they also offer slightly more elegant options such as petal papers and handmade seeded papers."
