Yeah, those will definitely work the magic on Valentine's Day.
Poo paper roses
are made from 100 percent dung pulp collected by these brave souls
from elephant and giant panda conservation parks. We won't go into the details, but from shit to flower there's a lot of boiling, steaming, molding, smashing, drying, and peeling involved.
Of course, your Valentine will not want to know any of this -- nor will she appreciate your "environmentally friendly" gift based on your keen observations of her soy milk and natural face wash preferences.
According to The Great Elephant Poo Poo Paper Company, the flowers are sturdy because of the fibrous materials and bamboo fibers in elephant and panda diets.
And while they may also be " innovative, sanitary, and stink-free," trust us -- for the $18 you'll spend on six, you might just want to buy your granola hipster girlfriend some organic chocolates and whip cream and call it a day.
