Enviro-Log Fire Logs - Review

Few things warm the holidays like a wonderful fire burning in the fireplace! Enviro-Log Fire Logs are an eco-friendly alternative heating product made from recycled waxed cardboard, typically from the boxes used to transport fruit and vegetables. Have a green Christmas!!
Enviro-Log Fire Logs burn cleaner than wood, emitting 30 percent less greenhouse gases, 80 percent less carbon dioxide and 86 percent less creosote. Enviro-Log Fire Logs also burn hotter than wood, providing 50 percent more heat per pound.
I received two Enviro-Log Fire Logs to put to the test. I decided to try one outside in the fire pit and one inside in the fireplace. Each comes in a paper package that is used as the catalyst to get the fire started. Just open the packaging and light one end!
Enviro-Logs look pretty close to a wood log, only you won't find any ants or spiders! That's a huge bonus for me. Enviro-Log Fire Logs are safe to use in fireplaces, fireplace inserts, woodstoves, chimineas, and campfires.
It was a bit windy when we fired up the outdoor fire pit, but the paper wrapper on the Enviro-Log caught fire easily. I worried a bit about embers flying, but I noticed immediately that this product actually produced less flying embers.
It definitely burns cleaner and we didn't have that ugly smoky smell billowing into our faces, even standing down-wind. The Enviro-Log burns more evenly across the log and makes a beautiful fire. A box of these logs would be a very thoughtful, practical Christmas gift and is perfect for a hard-to-buy-for person!
A huge bonus was being able to put out the fire very quickly when we were ready to go inside. A few splashes of water and it was out. It also dried out quickly in the sun the next day and we were able to light it again easily the next evening.
I especially appreciated the characteristics of the Enviro-Log inside my house. In just minutes, we had the perfect fall fireplace going in the family room. One log heated my entire family room on one of the few cold evenings we've had here in Texas (since I'm too cheap to turn on the heat this early in the season).
I think Enviro-Log Fire Logs are a fabulous idea. I love that my warm, inviting fire is reducing demands on landfills. I am switching to Enviro-Log from here on out! Find out more at their website http://www.enviro-log.net/ and purchase Enviro-Log at Home Depot, Kmart, Lowes, True Value, Sears, Whole Foods, Walmart, Dollar General, and many regional retailers. Connect with them on Facebook and Twitter too!
Disclosure: I received these products at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
