Holiday Leftovers & Rocket Stove Scrappings January 02 2014
Cardboard A lot of our gifts this year came in some sort of cardboard packaging that we typically throw away or recycle. If you don't have a reason to keep the cardboard box and reuse for packing or some other application, the next best step to take would be to recycle the cardboard. But if you don't typically keep any paper or good kindling around to start your EcoZoom rocket stove it makes sense to keep some solid cardboard in your stove kit. The best type of cardboard is any that is free from dyes, wax, or plastic. Just plain cardboard ensures you aren't burning anything toxic and it will certainly give your EcoZoom a nice little starter lift if you need one in a pinch. That Worthless Gift We've all been there and it is awkward. It might go something like this: You are pulling back back that last bit of wrapping paper wondering what in the world this magnificent gift could possibly be only to find out you just received two novels...completely in Russian...event though you don't speak Russian. Clark Griswold was given the Jelly of the Month Club, it wasn't more than a slip of paper but that long with the envelope it came with would have gone up nicely in an EcoZoom rocket stove. While we don't actually recommend burning your presents, or anything that isn't biomass for that matter, we do understand your motivation for doing so should you find a moment of weakness. We hope that everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays. Maybe you were even given the gift of outdoor cooking with one of EcoZoom rocket stoves. If not, swing by our store to learn about our different models and what makes them unique cooking machines.
