LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Air Quality Management District (AQMD) has issued a first ever alert for Los Angeles County on its decree to improve wintertime air quality by not burning wood in their fireplaces when unhealthful air quality is forecast. However, there are alternatives for that evening bonfire at Dockweiler State Beach or the Sunday night family get-together by the fireplace in Hancock Park.
History always repeats itself and today is no exception. Irish Peat has been used for centuries abroad for heating homes, cooking food or just that fireside ambience. It is a tradition abroad that is now being recognized in cities throughout the US. Harvested in the bogs of Ireland and imported here, peat is similar to the fire logs found in the U.S., except this condensed peat burns hotter, cleaner and longer.
Few retailers offer Irish Peat here in America however the benefits have exceeded most environmentalists expectations by its very nature such as having no carcinogens or toxins and certified to have low sulphur content.
Having put some Irish Peat in our own fireplace from a local retailer, Killofin Home, we found that even a few peat logs offered up a convenient and a truly enjoyable escape from burning wood. So to the purist who must have that fireplace roaring, we have the answer to the new restrictions being put on your pastime; Irish Peat.
