Enviro-Log Inc. is expanding its recycling program by recycling the waxed cardboard containers from its Enviro-Log firelogs and establishing a closed loop with the product.
In partnership with retailers, the eco-friendly consumer products and recycling company diverts old waxed cardboard containers from the landfill and routes them to Enviro-Log's production facility at its headquarters in Fitzgerald, Ga. Enviro-Log then takes the waxed cardboard and turns it into its earth-friendly firelogs. Often 100 percent recycled product goes back to retailers to be resold, the company said in a news release.
Enviro-Log has worked with more than 100 partners throughout North America and diverted more than 150 million pounds of waxed cardboard from landfills.
"Our recycling program offers a win-win for retailers,” said Enviro-Log President Ross McRoy. “Not only are we helping retailers significantly reduce their waste removal costs and improve their environmental impact, Enviro-Log provides value-added services to help retailers improve their sustainability and reach their carbon foot print goals.”
Enviro-Log uses 100 percent recycled waxed cardboard, typically used to transport fruits and vegetables to grocery stores and restaurants, to make its earth-friendly firelogs that the company claims burn cleaner than wood and provide 50 percent more heat per pound.
