What do you do with your super fresh sheep poo?

Make paper, of course! sheep

Creative Paper in Snowdonia produces greetings cards and gifts made from the …errrrr… by-products of its fluffy friends.

“We take great care to collect super-fresh sheep poo from the beautiful (and rainy) mountains of rural Wales and take it back to the mill, situated in southern Snowdonia

A very creative use of local resources, actually. As my grandmother used to say, waste not, want not.

Their innovation has led to kudos:

“Creative Paper Wales and its iconic Sheep Poo Paper™ range of products has been awarded the highest category Millennium Award for Social Entrepreneurialism

and the pain of rejection:

Top Welsh Entertainer Snubs Poo Paper

Following an approach to Max Boyce’s agent asking if we could give him a gift of a Sheep Poo Paper™ letter writing set and take his photo Creative Paper Wales were shocked to receive a polite and frank refusal. We are, of course, devastated at this refusal, as we bought all his albums and he’s one of our personal heroes

We are impressed with Creative Paper’s generosity, as they provide a link to a site at which one can purchase Max Boyce’s (who?) albums. Clearly, they don’t carry a grudge.
