paper bricks

Recycled paper bricks
At Eagleton Ridge we have lots of documents that require shredding. We would end up with shredded paper everywhere so we became inventive and started making paper bricks. The process is a tad time consuming but what a great way to recycle paper. The paper is soaked for some time in water then pressed into a brick maker mould, pressed until very dense and then dried. We have made hundreds of bricks over the years and we sell them at the markets for fire starters in winter. They burn for quite a long time and get your fire going well. As they are make from white paper they do not soot up your flue and will burn doen to ash. They do really well in combustion heaters.
