Known as the greenest and most versatile firelogs on the market, Enviro-Log Firelogs are the ultimate firewood substitute. Enviro-Log Firelogs are made from 100 percent recycled waxed cardboard and when compared to firewood, Enviro-Log Firelogs burn cleaner, emitting 30 percent less greenhouse gases, 80 percent less carbon dioxide and 86 percent less creosote. Enviro-Log Firelogs can also be stored and burned in all weather conditions and can be transported for camping, fishing, RVing, tailgating and other outdoor activities without the concern of restrictions imposed on firewood by some states and campsites. Enviro-Log Firelogs are also great for emergency preparedness because they have an infinite shelf life and are safe to cook over. They are also a popular choice for fire pits, wood stoves, chimineas, and campfires.

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. Each firestarter provides up to 20 minutes of burn time with tall and consistent flames that can even light firewood that has been dampened with light snow or rain. Burned to completion, each firestarter is 100 percent consumed and leaves no mess to clean up. Ideal for back packing, hiking, camping, fishing or tailgating, and emergency preparedness, Enviro-Log Firestarters provide a safe, clean and environmentally friendly way to start a fire anywhere.

The National Hardware Show is the leading trade show for the $343 billion U.S. home aftermarket industry and attracts a worldwide audience of more than 27,000 industry professionals annually. More information on the National Hardware Show can be found at www.nationalhardwareshow.com.

ENVIRO-LOG OFFERS SAFETY TIPS TO HELP YOU AVOID OUTDOOR COOKING ACCIDENTS

ATLANTA, Ga. – April 4, 2014 – As the days grow longer and the weather warms, activities are moving outdoors, including cooking. To keep those meals from going up in smoke, or worse, Enviro-Log®, Inc., a leader in eco-friendly products for home heating and outdoor activities, offers safety tips to help you avoid outdoor cooking accidents.

Grilling has become more popular than ever. The number of barbecue grills and smokers shipped to North American stores increased 41 percent from 1992 to more than 14 million units in 2012, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA). With an increasing number of people using grills, many of whom may be inexperienced, there’s a greater risk for accidents that can result in serious injury or property damage.

“Cooking outdoors has its risks, but they can be reduced by taking the right precautions and following safety procedures,” said Ross McRoy, president of Enviro-Log. “We urge people not to wait until after an accident has already happened to think about grilling safety. Please consider the following safety tips to help you avoid outdoor cooking accidents.”

  • Safety first. Never leave your grill or fire unattended and be sure to keep children and pets away from the fire and cooking area. Have a fire extinguisher nearby in case of emergency.
  • Read the Manual. Not all grills are the same. Always read instruction manuals and consult the manufacturer about the proper use of your grill, firepit, or chiminea before use.
  • Select the Proper Location. The National Fire Protection Administration (NFPA) said grills are the cause of 3,600 structure fires every year. Grills, fire pits, and chimineas should only be used outdoors and never in a trailer, tent, house, garage, covered porch or any enclosed area. They should be positioned at least 10 feet away from your house. In addition to creating a fire hazard, operating a grill, firepit or chiminea in an enclosed area can lead to the accumulation of carbon monoxide.
  • Stay out of the wind. Never operate your grill, firepit or chiminea in high winds. High winds can significantly increase the risk of flames spreading to nearby structures including your home.
  • Charcoal grills. Never add lighter fluid or any other flammable liquids to a charcoal grill that has been lit. Doing so can result in flare ups that can travel several feet. Consider alternative firestarter products that offer a preselected start that can easily be extinguished. Always let your charcoal cool completely before moving your grill or leaving it unattended. When you are finished grilling, douse the coals or soak them in water before disposing them in a metal container.
  • Propane and natural gas grills. The NFPA reported that five out of every six grill fires involve gas grills. To reduce the risk, always check for gas leaks every time you disconnect and reconnect the regulator to your propane tank. Never attach or disconnect a propane tank, or move or alter gas fittings when the grill is in operation or is hot. Never use a propane tank if it contains bulges, dents, gouges, corrosion, rust or other forms of visual external damage. Clean and perform general maintenance on your propane or natural gas grill twice a year. Always turn off the gas at the source (tank or supply line) prior to inspecting parts. Visually inspect hoses for abrasion, wear and leaks before each use. When lighting a gas grill, always keep the lid open to prevent a flash-off from gas build-up. Almost a third of gas grill injuries happen when the grill is being lit, according to the NFPA. Do not lean over the grill when igniting the burners or cooking. If the gas grill does not ignite on the first try, HPBA advises waiting five minutes for the gas to clear before trying again.
  • Campfires. The U.S. Forest Service recommends using existing firepits and fire rings at campsites. Always follow your campsite fire guidelines. Never build a fire in hazardous, windy, or dry conditions, and keep campfires at least 15 feet away from tents, shrubs, trees (and low-hanging branches) and other flammable objects. Have a bucket of water and shovel nearby. Never cut branches from live trees, and only use material that is approved for use by your campsite. When finished with a campfire, be sure it is fully extinguished before abandoning it. Dousing it with water is preferred, but dirt and sand can also be used to mix up the embers until they are cooled.

ENVIRO-LOG REMINDS CAMPERS TO PRACTICE FIRE SAFETY

 

ENVIRO-LOG REMINDS CAMPERS TO PRACTICE FIRE SAFETY

 

ATLANTA, Ga. – According to the 2012 American Camper Report, camping continues to grow in popularity as 42.5 million Americans went camping in 2011, up from 39.9 million in 2010. The report also noted that outdoor cooking ranked second behind hiking as the favorite activity to engage in while camping.   Enviro-Log®, Inc., maker of the greenest, most versatile firelogs and firestarters, reminds campers to practice fire safety to avoid injury and prevent damage to property and the environment.

 “Campfires, cooking and fuel sources such as propane and lighter fluid are typically the most dangerous elements of any campsite. In addition, campers that do not practice proper fire safety can cause forest fires, brush fires, destruction of natural resources and personal property as well the endangerment of wildlife, other campers and area residents,” said Ross McRoy, president of Enviro-Log. “Whether you choose to cook using a campfire, portable grill or stove, fires should only be started in safe, designated areas away from hanging branches, dry brush and leaves. Fires should never be left unattended and campers should check with state parks, campsites and recreation areas for rules on cooking and campfires as well as transportation and use of firewood and other fuel sources.”

Enviro-Log offers the following tips for a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

  • Follow the rules. Check with the campground for rules on use of campfires, portable grills and stoves. Find out if the campground has an existing fire pit or location for cooking.  If there is not an existing fire pit or designated cooking area, and fires and cooking are allowed, ensure that the site you use is at least 15 feet away from your tent, shrubs, trees or other flammable objects, including overhanging branches.  Also, check to see what kind of burning materials can be used; most states restrict transporting unapproved firewood into any state park, state forest or day-use area including: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
  • Prepare the site. Choose a spot that is protected from wind gusts and at least 15 feet from your tent and gear. Do not build a fire or use a portable grill or stove in hazardous or dry conditions. Clear a 15-foot diameter area around the location of a campfire. Remove any grass, twigs, leaves, branches and firewood. Also, make sure there are not any tree limbs or flammable objects hanging overhead. If an existing fire ring or fire pit is not provided, dig a pit in the dirt, about a foot deep and circle the pit with rocks.
  • Don’t burn dangerous items. Never use flammable liquids to ignite or keep your fire burning.  This means avoid gasoline, diesel fuel, lighter fluid and other dangerous fuels. Never burn aerosol cans or pressurized containers.  Never put glass in or near a fire.  Glass can heat up and shatter.
  • Maintain your fire. Keep your fire to a manageable size. Make sure children and pets are supervised when near the fire. NEVER leave your campfire, portable grill or stove unattended.
  • Extinguish your fire before you leave the campsite. Allow the charcoal, firelog or firewood to burn completely to ash, if possible.  Stir the campfire ashes and embers with a shovel to ensure nothing is still burning.  Pour water on the fire and be sure to saturate ALL embers.  Make sure you listen for the hissing sound to stop. Make sure everything is wet. Consult your campground for directions on disposal of charcoal.
