Bio-Bean Heat Log Made from Recycled Coffee Grounds 24cm x 14cm x 22cm

16 coffee logs which burn hotter and for longer than wood - although some users reported finding them slightly harder than wood to set alight.

The company says: "The UK drinks 95 million cups of coffee every day, creating hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste coffee grounds each year. Typically, coffee grounds go to landfill where they emit methane, a greenhouse gas 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Bio-bean works with the existing waste management infrastructure to collect used coffee grounds from coffee shops, offices, restaurants and transport hubs in urban areas within the UK where there is a high concentration of waste coffee grounds. By recycling coffee grounds into Coffee Logs, we generate 80% less emissions than if the grounds are sent to landfill." For more details click here
