I heat with wood during the winter in our wood stove. We tend to go through about 10-12 cord of wood each winter (bush cord not face cord). I am very impressed by these products to say the least. Totally compressed, these firelogs are heavy! Weighing in at 5lbs a log. The logs burn for a long time (3 hrs), reducing the need to keep adding additional wood to my wood stove. I was very happy to see that the product lived up to my expectations. There is no odd smell that emits from the firelogs which was great. These 5lb firelogs will burn up to three hours, exactly what the product claims. Since using the firelogs as an additional heat source, our wood consumption has reduced drastically. Within 3 hours, we could, on average, stoke our wood stove at least 3 times!!! Using Enviro-Log firelogs is saving us money!!! It costs us on average around $300 for 5 face cord of wood, never mind bush cord.
Being as these logs are eco-friendly, I am in love with the fact that they produce far less creosote than using traditional wood. This means that my wood stove will be more efficient. Cleaning the wood stove pipes will be easier as well.
Less creosote = less build up = less mess = less chances of fire hazard. It’s a win win!!!
As you can see in the photo, there are partial pictures which may have been logo’s on the boxes that vegetables and fruit were transported in. Some pieces of the compressed cardboard may separate during shipping. It is wise to open the bag that the firelog is stored in next to your fireplace or wood stove as some of the bits may fall off leaving a trail in your home.

Enviro-Log Firestarters are made from 100 percent recycled eco-friendly wax and offer an alternative to kindling, petroleum-based starter blocks, lighter fluids and ethanol-based gels.
The starting of a fire begins with the kindling and the ability the keep that lit and going in order for the fire produced to catch onto the wood. I have to admit, I always have a hard time getting the wood in the stove going. Many a newspaper and bits of wood would not help this lady if her life depended on it. I cannot count the numerous amount of times I thought I had the fire going only to return to check and it was completely out. It gets frustrating to say the least. This is usually a result of the fire wood being damp or just me stuffing too much in. Anyone who has tried to light damp wood can attest to how difficult it can be.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Enviro-Log‘s FireStarters. I just place the wood in the wood stove. I take one Enviro-Log FireStarter and place it under the wood. A simple lighting of the paper cup around the rim and presto – fire!
The great thing about these FireStarters is they burn for 20-30 minutes. No need for kindling!! There is no mess to clean up either as the FireStarter burns completely. You will not find any wax left behind. The FireStarters actually have a really pleasant scent. You would be tempted to add a wick into the wax and burn it like a candle – please – do not do that! Use it as intended.
Enviro-Log FireStarters: $12.99 USD /case of 24 (no additional shipping charges!)
