What recycles your newspaper, save trees, helps you warm up you home and saves you money all at the same time? An 8lb gadget called the Newspaper Log Roller.
The Newspaper Log Roller tightly rolls newspapers into "logs" for the fireplace. It is constructed of heavyweight and durable brass cast iron, has large legs for stability and has a wooden handle to wind up the newspaper.
To make the Newspaper Log Roller work insert the newspaper through the slit, turn the wooden handle to wind up the newspaper and in about 5 minutes you have a log. Take the log out. Tie it up with a string. Stack it next to the rest of the newspaper logs until you are ready to use it.
Tightly wrapped newspaper will burn just like cured firewood, but is much cheaper to use. It also is safer to use than crumble newspaper in a fireplace because it is less likely to create flying sparks and embers that can fall out of the fire. In addition using newspaper to make newspaper logs helps reduce wasted paper in landfills.You can get the Newspaper Log Roller here on Amazon.

Note: Newspaper logs should not be used in a catalytic stove. The ash will damage the catalyst.
EDITOR'S NOTE: A paper log maker may be another good option to take all the extra junk mail and make it into free firewood.
