Your Options for an Eco-friendly Fire Pit
January 17, 2014 by
Fire pits are something we all love as gathering around a glowing campfire with friends, music, food and drinks is a delightful way to spend winter evenings. But burning wood causes pollution and if you are looking for an alternative, you have many choices to get yourself the perfect eco-friendly fire pit.
Creating Your Own Eco-Friendly Fire Pit
There are people who love being outdoors and a fire pit can give them the campfire feeling in their own backyard. As some cities have banned fire pits which burn wood, it is a good idea to opt for fire pits which don’t use wood. This is eco-friendly and aesthetic at the same time. Moreover, there is also no risk of injury from embers flying off the fire. Take your pick from the options mentioned here.
You can choose a fire pit that uses natural gas. These pits are easy to operate and just need to be connected to a gas line. You can also opt for refillable tanks. The biggest advantage is that you don’t need to wait for the flames and embers to die before leaving- just flip a switch and you are done.
If you already have a fire pit which burns wood, you can opt for logs made of materials like recycled sawdust, soy grass, switchgrass, used coffee beans or non-petroleum natural wax. These logs give off at least 80 percent lesser emissions compared to wood which means lower mono-oxide emission and less build-up of creosote on the fire pit walls.
These fire pits are unique eco-friendly items which add an element of uniqueness to your outdoors and are also easy to clean. The added advantage of portability which comes with some fire pits makes it convenient for you to place them anywhere according to the occasion. They are completely safe and operating them is quite simple too.
Creating Awareness with an Eco-Friendly Fire Pit
For creating awareness about eco-friendly habits and products, business and environmental organizations must use eco-friendly promotional items. They can promote the use of such products by encouraging their employees and customers to use them. They can also offer these items to employees and customers as complementary gifts or incentives.
It is the duty and responsibility of business organizations and environmental organizations to use and promote the usage of eco-friendly items to save energy, trees and the planet. This is for our children, after all. What happens tomorrow depends on what we do today.
