Get your green on and go camping! A great green camping gift for guys and gals, is our coffee firestarters made from only 2 ingredients. Non-GMO or GMO free soy wax that is pure and natural without any dye, scent or additives, and unbrewed coffee grounds.
Our macadamia nut fire starters were so popular, I thought about what else could I combine with soy wax that would work great and be way cool -- coffee proved to be the winner! Coffee beans have lots of coffee essential oils and fiber, perfect for burning and starting a fire. We use unbrewed coffee grounds for strength and sanitation.
Light the cotton wick of our coffee fire starter and it will quickly make a large flame and burn for about 20 minutes without any kindling. That should be enough time to get your wooden logs or charcoal going. The starters smell like coffee when you receive them, but does not smell like coffee when you burn them.
Our coffee fire starters are packaged in sets of 2 which make great camping theme party favors, and 4, 6, and 12 for camping gifts and grilling gifts. All of our natural fire starters are available here.
Besides camp fires, our eco friendly green fire starters are great for fire pits, grills, and fireplaces -- especially if you plan to do some cooking, barbecue or grilling. Natural and chemical free, food taste better and is healthier using our fire starters instead of lighter fluid -- read on:
Exposure to petro chemicals
Petroleum is used to ignite the flame and keep it lit.
You may have noticed that there is a clear warning label on the can that reads "Danger: Harmful or fatal if swallowed". This fluid is being placed onto charcoal that is being burned. When it converts to smoke and rises, your meat is being exposed to harmful carcinogens.
The second warning on a can of charcoal lighter usually reads "CAUTION: combustible mixture! "Combustible" means to catch fire and burn quickly. This is exactly what petroleum fluid does. Using a combustible mixture to grill your food is not advised.
The third warning on a can of charcoal lighter says "DANGER: contains petroleum distillates." This means that the gas or petroleum is distilled.
Did you know there are adverse side effects from using charcoal lighter fluid? These adverse side effects include headaches, dizziness, nausea, and unconsciousness. The manufacturers of these lighter fluids admit all of these harmful side effects but most people don't think anything of it before purchasing this product.
