And could someone please explain to me how they are “green” – I guess the thoughts process is that you’re not chopping down wood to burn? But the fuel to create the fire for these “propane” is a fossil fuel, that you probably didn’t get anywhere near your home – ie. it was pulled out of the ground far, far away and then has been transported all over the place burning gasoline. This isn’t even vaguely green, it’s not even pale green.
Can it be considered “green washing”? Or maybe just crap.
I buy the equivalent of maybe two trees each winter to have a nice warm fireplace (for ambiance more than heat). The wood is locally harvested and is typically fallen wood (storms etc)… much much better. Plus I feel good about supporting the local business community.
I’m sure someone out there has to have an opinion about what I’ve just said… Come on, this is a gimme.
