After a long winter, we are all ready to get outside. It’s time to enjoy a little fresh air, pick a few spring flowers and hear the birds sing. More importantly, it’s time to move our fires to the great outdoors!
During the month of April, we celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day. These days are good reminders that it is up to us to take care of creation. Thousands of trees are cut every year for paper and unsustainable logging for timber. Even more are lost through forest fires and clear cutting for agriculture, ranching and development.
Arbor Day and Earth Day both remind us of the need to preserve and plant trees. As we head into the camping season, we need to be conscious of the part that we all play to maintain our beautiful trees, while still enjoying campfires! This quote comes from the USDA website “When enjoying the great outdoors, don’t move untreated firewood. Instead, buy or responsibly gather firewood near the place you’ll burn it – or bring certified, heat-treat firewood with you to use.”
Because BIO BLOCK Firewood is kiln-dried, it falls under the heat-treated category. BIO BLOCKS can be transported across state and county lines, without concern of spreading invasive insects which kill trees. The Emerald Ash Borer, Gypsy Moths, Asian Longhorned Beatle and other invasive insects have killed thousands of trees. This happens because we have not been aware of the dangers of moving firewood.
Save trees, and your money, by taking several 12 packs of BIO BLOCKS with you when you head out to a state park or campground. You can feel good about having a campfire this year with 100% recycled firewood!
