HIGHHEAT is a socially responsible firelighter product, where every firelighter is made entirely of recycled wax cardboard. ~400,000 tonnes of wax cardboard end up in Australian rubbish tips every year because it can’t be recycled like regular cardboard. Since our launch in 2012, HIGHHEAT has recycled more than ~5,000 tones of the material locally in Victoria. Not only are we excited to have recycled so much material, but as of November 2015 we’re also dedicated to reaching our target of recycling 100,000 tonnes per year of wax cardboard by 2025.
