These 100% biomass firelighters contain only 2 ingredients: FSC certified wood and non-GMO vegetable oil, making them much more environmentally friendly than regular kerosene or petroleum firelighters.
The emissions resulting from the combustion of these firelighters is considered carbon neutral due to the fact that the CO2 emitted from the combustion of biomass is offset by reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere as a result of new biomass growth. This is in accordance with guidelines by the EPA as well as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The same cannot be said for firelighters using petroleum products, such as kerosene, paraffin wax or slack wax.
Directions for use: Simply place 3-4 firelighters under wood or on top of charcoal and light them on the fractured side of the cube – they will burn for 8-10 minutes. Make sure they have completely burned before putting any food on the grill.
Size: 72 pieces (575g). Packaged in a recyclable paper bag with cotton string stitched seal
