Nerman-Lockhart, Inc. is a family owned business that has been making
environmentally friendly firestarters (made from 100% recycled materials)
for over twenty years. We sell the firestarters under several labels:
Although we market with humor, our firestarters really work! They are safe,
fast, clean and pleasant smelling, eliminating the need for kindling, paper
or liquid starters. One firestarter will effortlessly light the charcoal grill.
They even ignite damp fire wood! We recycle used and scrap candles
to make our starters. Holy Smokes! are made from used church candles
which we purchase from many churches (an ecumenical blend) and a few
Jewish and Buddhist temples. The wax is blended with sawdust that has
been pressed into sheets in an American mill to produce a reliable and pleasant
smelling firestarter. Most of the churches from whom we buy candles, sell
Holy Smokes!(containing their wax) as a fundraiser. We customize a sticker for
each package mentioning the church and the approximate percentage of that
churchs wax contained in the package. Holy Smokes are a profitable
fundraiser, especially in areas where wood stoves and fireplaces abound.
If you wish to consider selling Holy Smokes!
or our other labels as a fundraiser,
