A company in Tasmania has found a way to make paper out of excreta from the Australian marsupials known as wombats. The Creative Paper Company in Burnie has already won attention for making "Roo-Poo" paper from kangaroo dung, and are now expanding their line.

Host Scott Simon speaks with Darren Simpson, a "paper maker" for Creative Paper.
