Have you ever looked at your junk mail and realized what a colossal waste it is? Not only is money being wasted to send it to you, but then you toss it.

Well now you can put those unwanted Jeb Bush mailers to use by using them to heat your home. Tiny House Listings has a video showing how to turn paper waste products, such as mail and egg cartons into logs for your fire.

You will need two 5-gallon containers, water, and a drill. You can also use a circular saw to mix up the water and paper concoction to speed up the process. These are relatively easy items to get, if you don’t have them. And after you make this once, you will already have the supplies on hand to make the next one.

Watch the video to see how you can up-cycle unwanted mail. The end result will be logs that will burn for hours.

What do you usually do with junk mail?
