Making the paper pulp bricks is a fairly easy process (especially with the right tools) but it takes a month or two to fully dry out in warm weather. Newspaper can be saved, scooped up from recycling centers or just put the word out to family and friends you are collecting. I bet you will be amazed at just how much you will gather. Please consider not using color ink pages of the newspapers or magazines you collect due to health hazards of noxious mildly carcinogenic gases.  The compressed dense nature of the paper pulp fire brick helps it to burn slowly and hotter.

I am a strong believer that everything can be recycled, re-used or re-purposed into something useful, creative or beautiful.
