Using Newspaper Logs

Newspaper "logs" work great in the fireplace. Instead of buying expensive starter logs for the fireplace, roll and tie with string or twine newspapers. To start the fire, place several newspaper logs on the grate, then smaller kindling scraps, then the real wood pieces. I store mine in a large crock right next to the fireplace during winter. Gets rid of the newspaper mess and I can avoid going into the recycling center each week. The newspaper logs don't create a multitude of extra ash, either.

Burning newspaper is NOT a good alternative to recycling! It releases harmful carbon and chemicals into the air inside your home ( not all smoke goes up the chimney) and into the environment and contributes to air polution. If everybody did this, teh US would be like London in the 1800s - covered with black soot! Recycle your paper people!
