This product is made from pressed coconut shells. No trees have been cut to produce this charcoal. This isn't your traditional quick lighting coal. This charcoal offers the best of both worlds. You will get the quality and duration of a coconut coal with the convenience of a quick light charcoal. Make sure to light in a well ventilated area since these charcoal spark/light more than traditional quick lights. There are 108 pieces in a box equaling to 1 kilo in weight.
