The “Hottest” Eco Supplier Around!

Welcome to Sunny Logs

Premium Eco log Supplier in Salisbury

Sunny Logs is a local family business (women led!) who supply ecofriendly quality fuel logs within 10 miles of  Salisbury.

‘Once upon a time’, we sold imported Kiln Dried Oak logs…however times of change is here! We need to get on the track for zero net carbon target 2050!

SUNNY LOGS ARE GREENING UP!

WE WILL FROM NOW ON ONLY SELL ECO-BRIQUETTES, also called wood briquettes/fuel logs/heat logs/eco logs/fire logs…! 

We NEED to change for environmental reasons. Eco logs are made with RECYCLED WASTE WOOD from BRITISH sawmills sold in PAPER bags. No more trees being felled specifically to make firewood and no more plastic added into our society. 

The best thing about this change is that; Eco logs are hotter, cleaner, drier, longer burning and more economical than even kiln dried logs! 

Last season, there was an immense increase in demand for logs across UK and Europe. It’s not brain science to see this will have negative impact on forests, even if they are so called ‘FCS sustainably managed & sourced’…Sunny Logs simply do not want to be part of this anymore!

We hope you embrace our choice and want to join this eco-approach!

We are delighted to announce we have found a British quality producer, sourcing local virgin waste wood chips, generating their own renewable energy for the making process AND can supply the eco logs in paper bags rather than plastic!  

DELIVERIES WILL RESUME IN EARLY OCTOBER

WE WILL START TAKING BOOKINGS FROM AUGUST 2021

We know the importance of quality heat fuel – We have been active in the wood burning industry for over 10 years; Does “Heart of the Home Ltd.” woodburner installations ring a bell?

Yes, that’s us – just expanding our adventures with our dog Sunny.

Trust us, we know the kind of fuel that burns best in your woodburner to guarantee blazing heat output and ultimate satisfaction! Of course, we only offer a sustainable source of fuel! Eco briquettes!

The Perfect Sunny load of Eco Briquettes!

Eco log bags with Free Delivery within 10 miles of Salisbury

We like to keep it simple, and we are proud to present our one and only product ‘the Sunny load’ It consists of 20 individual paper bags of Eco Logs delivered in a dumpy bag (like last season!). Total weight is 200kg = 20bags of 10kg including 5 logs of 2kg/each.

Each logs is cut into 28cm but we recommend to break them into 2- 4 smaller chunks. Moisture content is lower than 12%.  Eco briquettes are much hotter, cleaner, longer burning and more economical than traditional logs. They really are great value for money and a great environmental choice! 

Sunny Logs provide free delivery within 10 miles around Salisbury! Check out the map to see if we operate in your area. We serve up to 15 miles, but there is a £15 delivery charge. See map

NEW: Pick up bag yourself

This season we have added the option to come and collect a load directly at the barn at dedicated times. This can be handy if you live further away and don’t want to pay delivery fee or if you need bag sooner than first available delivery slots 😉 

New: Sales of local Kindling 

As the eco logs need a sufficient hot fire to get them going we have teamed up with a local kindling supplier! A good kindling fire will be enough to get your eco logs burning!

Eco logs offer a great value, clean and convenient alternative to traditional firewood. Eco logs has a higher calorific value than logs. A ton of eco logs will contain around 5000kWh of energy, more energy content of the same amount of Kiln Dried firewood, but at a comparable cost!

Briquettes deliver greater energy density due to their lower moisture content and greater density, which makes them the ultimate contender for high value heat generation.  And most important, as it burns hot, it emits less particles helping to control air pollution…

Our eco logs are perfectly dry at <12% we already comply with DEFRA’s Clean Air Strategy which plans to phase out the sale of wet wood (> 20% moisture) from 2021 to tackle air pollution.

Sustainability

ECO Logs – sustainable and low-carbon, using a pure wood waste product  – that’s the way forward!

Sustainability is very important for us and we are delighted to announce that our manufacturer of Eco Briquettes are exceptionally environmental friendly! They are producing a great quality product while working hard on keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum. Sustainability and keeping on track to reach the climate goals are top priority for us.  

We guarantee that all our eco briquettes comes from 100% virgin wood residue (no additives what so ever!) from British sawmill activity. This means that trees are not having to be felled specifically to make firewood. The sawmill activity wood comes from sustainably managed UK forests and is FSC certified. This means the forest is managed to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Over 90% of our manufacture’s raw material comes from Sawmills within 40 miles of their drying and manufacturing plants. 

Our manufacturer show their transparency by using a technique known as Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) to assess their environmental impact associated with all the stages of the manufacturing of their products. They have invested in a paper bag packaging machine, we are so happy and proud to only offer Eco logs in paper bags rather than plastic bags that can’t be collected for recycling in Wiltshire. We absolutely do not want to be part of adding plastic bags into our society where other options exists. Our manufacturer generate their own renewable energy to run their their process sites! Even better, they actually create enough electricity to sell some back to the local grid as well. In fact, in 2020 they exported enough electricity to power around 1,800 homes.

Eco logs are friendly to the environment with less CO² emissions than other forms of heating. Moisture content is lower than 12% meaning they burn very hot so it emits less particles helping to control air pollution…Sunny logs are proud to offer a cosy, but also climate smart source of energy. 

Sunny Logs also support the woodland trust charity. We believe their work to conserve, protect and restore ancient woodland as well as planting new trees in crucial to ensure the preservation of our forests for future generations.

≲12% Moisture Content

Less moisture content is the key to quality hot blazing fire! The Eco logs are at <12% and can be burnt immediately. They are certified with Woodsure’s ‘Ready to burn’.

 

Energy Efficient

Eco logs has very high calorific value ‘energy output’ as less energy is required to burn off moisture, leaving more energy to be converted into heat. around 5kWh/tonne compared to average of 4.2kWh/tonne for Kiln dried wood.

Cost Efficient

Eco logs burn hotter, more efficiently and longer so you use less logs to achieve the same heat output as traditional and even kiln dried logs.

The impressiveness of Eco briquettes comes down to pure physics of its manufacturing.

Good For Chimneys - Less Maintenance

Eco logs burn at higher temperatures, any water and sap retained in the wood are burned off, thus low in smoke. This will prevent an build-up of soot and tar in the flue which are costly to deal with and could cause chimney fires.

Environment Friendly

Eco logs are made of 100% virgin wood chips waste (no additives) from British sawmills. The wood is sourced within 40 miles of production sites and come from FSC certified forests. The manufacturer uses it’s own Renewable energy to run production sites Eco logs emits less smoke, hence less pollutants into the air than traditional logs. They are a very climate smart way to heat our homes compared to purposely felling forests for imported firewood or using fossil fuels.
