    Love your Ideas. This Christmas I took the Bathroom tissue brown inner rolls I had saved and crush several into the center of one to make a bonfire/campfire starter. I wrapped the tubes in recycled gift wrapping paper and tied off the ends with recycled ribbons to make what comes to look like a English style holiday wrapped candy or Christmas “cracker” or “popper”. My camping friends really liked them and they worked in indoor fireplaces also. Cheers!

  2. I have been recycling toilet paper and paper towel tubes for a decade. They are the same material as cereal bozes, very organic.
