As our charcoal is processed and bagged, the small pieces (or “fines”) that fall through the grating are collected and sold to companies that produce briquettes. There is nothing wasted or discarded in the charcoal manufacturing process.
Our kraft paper bag is recyclable, made from natural wood pulp. The soy-based inks used on the bag are landfill-safe and will not produce harmful fumes if burned. Our bag can be crumpled up and placed in the bottom of a chimney starter or campfire.
From the start, not a single tree is harvested for making charcoal alone. Our charcoal is made exclusively from hardwood left over from timber milling operations (and never from softwoods, flooring, molding, or any scraps that might contain those materials or resin). The operators we use follow forest management standards and harvest trees responsibly.
