Fire Starting Kit

 Ready to Use  Reliable  Resistant (Wind/Water)  Recycled

Our Idea

Who are we?

I’m Dave. I have experience:

  • hiking
  • backpacking
  • fire starting

I want to assist outdoor enthusiasts

What are we offering?

reBurn is a fire-starting kit made of recycled cardboard and paraffin wax which is then cased cylindrically with cardboard

  • Lightweight
  • Reliable
  • Start with a match

This device is SIMPLE. Creating mass amounts of the product will be easy to do and extremely feasible

Who are we offering it to?

Anyone who starts fires!

  • Hikers/Backpackers
  • Campers
  • Fire Pit Owners
  • Wood Stove Owners
  • Cavemen

Why does that person care?

In Canada, 4.5% of deaths are due to cold weather (CBC, 2015). Being able to start a fire in any situation can be a life-saving tool

  • Recycled material
  • Water-resistant
  • Wind-resistant
  • Reliable
  • Excellent Coal-bed

Fire increases your chances of survival in many situations; it is a worthwhile investment

Our distinctive competencies

  • Confirmed with NRCan that these materials combined are not covered under the Explosives Act and do not require regulated sales
  • Studied and have experience in the combustion properties of solid fuels and am confident I can come up with a good combination of the ingredients for lengthy combustion
  • Experienced business caveman. I’ve sold firestarting kits before and understand the market

The substitutes & alternatives


  • Wood Pellet Firestarter
  • Dryer Lint
  • Tree Bark


  • Camp Stove/BBQ
  • Kerosene

While there are many substitutes and alternative I have been unable to find one that provides excellent water and wind resistance without sacrificing combustibility
