Local choices for healthy coastal living

Grill Green

Cape Cod Fire Log As winter turns into spring, many of us are itching to use our barbecues and backyard fire pits. Cape Cod Fire Log provides 100 percent recycled, unused wood free of waxes, oils or any additives in the form of logs or cooking briquettes for a green evening of grilling and relaxing. Fill up and keep warm while preserving trees. Cape Cod Fire Log products can be burned indoors or out and are available locally at Roche Bros and Tedeschi Food Shops. Briquettes can be purchased in six-pound, 15-pound, and 30-piece sets of mini logs. $4.99-$12.99. capecodfirelog.com, 877-663-5647.

Environmental elegance

Casabella Casabella’s elegant candleholders, fashioned from glimmering recycled glass, hold biodegradable soy wax—a clean, environmentally sensitive alternative to paraffin wax. Once the wax runs out, the containers can be repurposed as vases, cups, or other accessories. $16.50. Available at Casabella Home Furnishings, 389 Route 6A, East Sandwich. casabellahomefurnishings.com, 508-888-8688.

Sustainable Stones

Pastore Excavation At Pastore Excavation in Sandwich, you can find stones of reclaimed granite for an authentic, old-fashioned look at the doorway, along the driveway, or in the backyard of your Cape home. Granite is also a great choice for walls and posts with a rich patina not found in quarried new granite. Pastore offers stones ($25 to $2,000) in several sizes as well as hand-chiseled blocks. The stones can also be added to your garden for sculptural interest, or placed as an interesting perch alongside a pool or beach walk. pastoreexcavation.com, 508-428-9300.
