If that’s a concern you and I have in common, check out the Java-Log.
The Java Log has been featured in Time Magazine, the New York Times, Oprah Magazine, on the Ellen Degeneres show, and many more media outlets.
So why is everyone raving about “the world’s most innovative and eco-friendly coffee fire logs”?
How does it work?
Rod Sprules, inventor of the Java-Log, created the first one by combining dried coffee grounds with candle wax, stuffing it into a cigar tube, and putting a match to it.
Viola, the Java-Log was born!
Pretty simple eh?
Java Log Benefits:
Environmentally Friendly: Utilizes the 3 R’s — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
- Utilizes a renewable, natural vegetable wax
- 100% recycled packaging
- Saves trees
- Diverts 10 Million Kg/year of coffee waste from landfills
Better & Brighter Flames: most natural flame; coffee has 25% more energy than wood and 3x the flame per unit of energy.
No Chemical Odor=Better Scent: has “NO CHEMICAL SMELL”, some people claim to smell a faint sweet aroma!
Reduced Emissions: Java-Logs produce significantly fewer emissions than firewood.
- 8X Less Creosote (Safer for Chimney & Clean Burning)
- 5X Cleaner Particulate Matter (Less Air Pollution) & Less Carbon Monoxide (Less Air Pollution)
The Java-Log has an even more environmentally friendly formula:
“Java-Log has introduced an innovative new firelog formula that addresses newest trends in sustainability. The new Java-Log All Renewable Firelog is made from recycled coffee grounds and 100% renewable non-petroleum wax.”
I burned a couple of Java Logs yesterday as the high temp was a mere 28 degrees here in Nashville. Let me tell ya, I can’t think of a better way to spend a cold winter Sunday than cuddled up with my wife on the couch with an environmentally friendly fire crackling in the fireplace!
Some of you may be asking, “Even if Java Logs are more efficient than wood (and other firelogs), aren’t all fires a very inefficient way of heating and taxing on the environment?”
I’m glad you asked, we’ll explore the gas vs. wood vs. firelogs vs. central heat and air in another post real soon.
Oh, and by the way, you can find Java-Logs at many major retailers such as Kroger, Walmart, Ace Hardware, Amazon, etc. I purchased a case at Kroger for about $20 (around $3/log).
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
