Duraflame Logs – Friendly to The Environment

Posted by: admin on Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

We are home from dinner with my daughter and grandchildren.  I ate too much and am paying dearly.  I eat little, and when I do follow a fairly strict vegetarian diet.  My son in law, of course, thinks that funny, and we had a few good laughs over it.  It was good to see my grandkids.  I don’t ever see enough of them even though they live close.  And I got to play with the dogs, which was a load of fun for me.  Living in the city, I had to give up my two Black Labs, and it broke my heart.  Tia has 2 Labs, Brody and Jersey.  One black, as I prefer, and Jersey is chocolate.  It was like a home coming party for an old man that loves dogs as much as I.

I read tonight about the Duraflame Company in Stockton.  They have been making burnable logs since 1969.  The logs were a byproduct of their other wood working industry.  The coated them with petroleum wax and they are excellent to burn in the fireplace.

Now much of their wood working business has gone to  China, so they have gone to Canada and Kentucky for other sawdust sources.  and now they are using plant based wax in building their logs.  The source is renewable, and is one of the best.  A Duraflame log will burn for three to four hours,  while a natural-wood fire might consume 30 pounds of material over the same span.   Tests have shown that a manufactured-log fire produced less than 25 percent of fine particulate matter of a fire from Douglas fir cordwood.  In my book, that is pretty much okay.

A tip ‘O the Allnut hat to Duraflame.  They are working to save the planet.
