We previously discussed making your own java logs; Here is a handy device that presses your old newspapers into neat little bricks that are said to light easily and burn nicely.

It needs damp newspaper; you can use leftover coffee and put a little java in these logs, as well. We don't know what the environmental effects of burning newsprint logs are, but it does seem to be an interesting option if you like using a fireplace. via ::Dvice
