About a month ago, my buddies over at worldchanging posted an item about the Java Log fire log. It’s a manmade piece of firewood made of recycled coffee grounds. The logs cost about as much as any other fire log (Duraflame being the most famous), but are a whole lot better for the environment. Anyway, I happened to be at Target a couple of days later and picked up a case of them, and am completely sold. I used to buy regular old firewood when I lived in a house, but I don’t have room for firewood at my apartment, so I had to buy those expensive little bundles of wood at the grocery store. The Java Log is cheaper, infinitely easier to ignite, and leaves nearly no mess. Oh, and it’s much better for the environment than a wood fire or a Duraflame fire as well. Amazing product.
