    BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF

    28 cubes — depending on how big a fire you're lighting you will likely get 7 to 9 fires out of this pack.
    72 cubes — depending on how big a fire, 18-24 fires.

    These firelighters are quick and easy to use:

    1. Place 3-4 firelighters under wood or on top of charcoal.
    2. Light each firelighter on the fractured side of the cube. Cube burns for 8-10 minutes with the first 5 minutes producing the strongest flame.
    WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?

    Petroleum based firelighters: Some firelighters contain kerosene and /or paraffin or paraffin wax, all derived from petroleum, and therefore based on fossil fuels. With the combustion of some firelighters, formaldehyde—a substance which has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—may be released. If You Care 100% Biomass Firelighters are 100% from renewable resources and are non-toxic.

    Firelighters using petroleum products, such as kerosene, paraffin wax or slack wax are not carbon neutral. Because If You Care Firelighters are made 100% from biomass—wood and vegetable oil—the emission resulting from their combustion are considered carbon neutral. This is due to the fact that the CO2 emitted from the combustion of biomass is offset by reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere as a result of new biomass growth. This is in accordance with guidelines by the EPA as well as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
