For Dads Who Love Grilling: Cowboy Charcoal

Cowboy Charcoal

Charcoal gives a better flavor to grilled meats and veggies than gas or electric grills, but most charcoal briquettes include additives that can produce dangerous fumes for the cook, and air pollution. Depending on the source of the wood, they can also contribute to deforestation.

A more eco-friendly alternative to charcoal briquettes is lump hardwood charcoal. Cowboy Charcoal uses an eco-friendly European method of producing charcoal to turn sustainably-harvested, kiln-dried hardwood scraps into clean burning lump charcoal that burns hotter, is easier to light, and produces better flavor than conventional charcoal briquettes.

For Dads Who Love Beer: Single Stage Brewery Organic Beer Kit

Dixon Golf Earth Balls are not only eco-friendly, they are also high performance. With a 92% approval rating from the PGA Tour Partners, Earth Balls outperform most 2-piece and some 3-piece balls on the market. Dixon Golf Earth Balls are a true win-win situation for golfers and the environment!
