We all know what to do on cold winter days whether you are in the Swiss Alps, or fishing shanty on a nearby lake. When the snow is deep and blows and drifts and the wind cuts through you like a sharp blade, the best thing to do is to build a fire to keep warm. It doesn’t matter if you are in a hiking cabin somewhere or in your own house a fire in the fireplace or wood burner will keep you toasty warm.
Of course you could either buy wood logs from some local guy with a couple cords or go into the woods and chop your own. Then again, here is a better idea. Buy and burn low waste logs . These logs are made from the waste of environmentally friendly sawmills. That means the small scraps and sawdust that would otherwise find its way to a landfill or a burn off fire.
These cast offs are made into logs you can burn in your fireplace, wood burner, wood stove, or cooker and they will radiate more heat than timber logs. They even radiate more heat than coal making them more efficient than either timber logs or coal. The other benefit is that no additional trees were cut down for their production because they are made from recycled material. (more...)
