Here’s a pretty nifty way to be a bit more sustainable. Take all that paper you waste daily and mash it up into usable paper logs for bonfires during the frigid winter. I’ve always made knots out of newspapers to start up fires, but this ideas pretty cool if it works. Reminds me of those can crushers for recycling, but now ya just mash up layers of paper, and you get “paper logs” for usage 😉

Be careful of all the chemicals released from the papers when you burn your paper logs; may do more environmental harm than good.
very good point..I did wonder about that a bit, but in general most newspaper are fine, vs magazine and magazine articles whihc can be bad. The amount of energy and emission that actually go into recycling is pretty bad itself… I think reuse is better than recycling…it’s the 3rd R in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.!
lots of commercial papers contain formaldehyde. be careful what you burn, breathe in or release into the air!!!
