Fun with Recycling

Parks in Northeastern Vermont used to sell these gigantic bags of 'kindling' comprised of small, square blocks that were leftover pieces from furniture making.

These bags were sold to campers and kept in large 'kindling cages'.

While they were a nice idea, they really didn't work very well starting campfires so we stopped using them and went to selling easier to manage 'fire starters' instead.

Once we made the switch, there was no longer a need for the old kindling cages.

So, with old fashioned Yankee thrift and a contemporary mind towards recycling, the clever staff at Maidstone State Park came up with these fun ideas for re-purposing the cages.

Pretty cool, huh?
