Environmental Fireplace is another Bill Mason original. He gave the idea to Ric Driediger, owner of Churchill River Canoe Outfitters, located in Missinipe, SK, Canada. Ric spent years developing, testing and refining the concept. The result is a portable, lightweight folding firebox, which burns fuel much more efficiently and economically than a traditional campfire, or other campfire stoves. This folding fireplace is ideal for the environmentally conscious canoeist. The false bottom helps in insulate the ground from fire. When this fireplace is placed on some rocks it will not leave a scar, even if your fire is situated in thick moss. When boiling a pot of water, the fireplace requires half the wood of an open fire. Because the heat is so much more contained, even damp or poor firewood will burn. It is truly an Environmental Fireplace.
