"IIn observance of Earth Day, we welcome Enviro-Log in our efforts to educate our team members and customers about the programs and initiatives that Whole Foods Market and its vendors support to help protect the environment,” said Mike Hardy, facility team leader of south region distribution center at Whole Foods Market. “Our eight-year partnership with Enviro-Log has allowed us to further reduce our impact on the environment and offer our customers cleaner-burning alternatives to wood, kindling, petroleum-based starter blocks, lighter fluids, and ethanol-based gels.”

“Enviro-Log has participated in this Earth Day event with Whole Foods Market since it started, and we’re pleased to take part again this year,” said Ross McRoy, president of Enviro-Log, Inc. “Both companies are dedicated to providing environmentally friendly products to their customers, and this Earth Day event will allow us to introduce attendees to our unique products, and emphasize the importance of recycling.”

Enviro-Log is the largest waxed cardboard recycler in the U.S. and uses the material to manufacture its earth-friendly firelogs that burn cleaner and more efficiently than firewood. Enviro-Log also offers firestarters, which 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.

Enviro-Log partnered with Whole Foods Market in 2006 to divert its used waxed-cardboard from landfills to be converted into clean-burning firelogs that are then sold at Whole Foods Market locations around the country. This is a true closed-loop partnership that is a win-win for both companies.

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.

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.
