4 affordable eco-friendly braai gadgets

18 Sep 2015

There isn’t a South African in the land who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned braai. The sharp smell of blitz coupled with the soft crackling of kindle as the scent of fire wafts into the air, smiles blooming as it does.  

Made from grapeseed oil and priced at R23, these fire lighters make fire building easier than ever before.

On 24 September, South Africans across the nation will be celebrating Heritage Day, which is also known as National Braai Day. Although the food on the day will be as unique and diverse as our heritage, every South African should agree to take care of the environment. 

To help you do that, has put together a list of eco-friendly braai alternatives for Heritage Day. 

1. Eco friendly fire lighters 

There are only a handful of people who can start a fire from scratch. For the rest of us who need a little help, eco fire-lighters are the perfect solution. With a longer burning time (approximately 20 minutes), they contain no paraffin and a low odour. Made from grapeseed oil and priced at R23, these fire lighters make fire building easier than ever before. 

2. Wood stove eco cooker 

Reduce your carbon emission with the wood stove eco cooker. Their best-in-class design methods deliver high quality performance standards. With components like the market-specific handles and locking pot, this eco cooker is easily adaptable and efficient. Enjoy a carbon reduced Braai Day with this nifty appliance, which is selling for R641. 

3. Eco friendly cutlery and crockery 

Reduce your carbon emission with the wood stove eco cooker.

Many of us have used eco-friendly cutlery and crockery without even realising it. Events such as the Taste of Cape Town and Rocking the Daisies use these every year - now you can use them at home too. For R101, you’ll get a 50 pack, 24cm round plate to hold all your tasty braai servings. 

Knives, forks and spoons are also available. 

4. Eco friendly fire logs 

If you love your fireplace at home and aren’t looking to change it, then simply adapt your fuel to eco-logs. Made from recycled grapeseed oil by-products, they are 100% natural, burn like wood and provide hot coals with long lasting heat. 

Enjoying a delicious braai and taking care of the environment go hand in hand this Heritage Day, with these nifty eco-friendly braai alternatives.
