Did you know my families main source of heat is wood?
Yep, we have a woodstove and while we have a natural gas furnace to back it up, we hardly use it. However besides our wood stove, we also have a gorgeous stone fireplace, that in the 11 years my husband has had this house, has never been used. Finally, this year that changed. Enviro-Log sent us a box to try out and we thought it was the perfect excuse. They also sent us some fire starters to try and they saved my butt a few times when I lost the fire in my wood stove.
For starters, Enviro-Log burns cleaner than your regular wood log. Making it ideal for an occasional fire in your fireplace or bonfire. It has 30% fewer greenhouse gasses, 80% less Carbon Monoxide, and 86% less creosote. Another reason is that it is illegal (in most states) to transport firewood in and out of the state. There are certain kinds of insects that are killing trees, so moving your firewood could actually end up causing great harm! You can read more about that here.
They are even husband approved.
When I told Matt I was going to be getting this box to try out he laughed. Apparently, in the male mind they are still cavemen and creating fire for their family is big deal. However, when we used it to start our fire we are impressed. It was easy to get going and it got a great fire going.
The next time you are gearing up for a bonfire or want to have a nice romantic fire in your fireplace, make life a little easier and grab some Enviro-Log.
