Fire starters (shredded paper fire logs)
This is Jeff Teasdale from the CACL Antigonish on behalf of Brian Cameron and Garry Kell. The boys have launched their own business making shredded paper fire logs with shredded paper and wood chips from the CACL Antigonish. The boys have outgrown us and are going out on their own. We have secured a place to make these logs. They have a venue to sell them as well. So far they have sold all that they have made!
Gary and Brian are taking on the challenge of starting their own business. So far they have the raw materials accessed (these waste products are being reused instead of landing in landfills). They have access to a customer base (farmers market and other local business for example Main St Irving). They now have a location that they can work out of seasonally and hopefully one day year round.
