Responsibility and sustainability

Sustainability is the key ingredient in all ZARELO products, including the responsible consumption of natural resources, the complete avoidance of plastic and outstanding working conditions for our employees.

All firelighters with this seal come from our factory in northern Bavaria. Our products are made at a former porcelain factory – we are a reliable employer for people in this economically underdeveloped region.

In harmony with nature

In harmony with nature

A crackling fire in your home stove and glowing charcoal on your barbecue are natural ways to warm your soul and prepare your food, so it’s nice to know ZARELO also offers completely natural firelighters.

ZARELO firelighters come from the Fichtel Mountains, a wooded region in northern Bavaria where the forests have been managed sustainably and naturally for many generations.

Regionality

The rugged mountain areas are located over 1,000 metres above sea level, where the trees grow more slowly and the wood is characterised by a special quality. As the most important material for many of our firelighters grows in the local region, we can cut down on unnecessarily long transport routes.

Our wood bears the PEFC label to confirm our careful and responsible forest management methods. Almost all ZARELO products also bear the “100%” FSC label, which is subject to highly stringent controls in Germany and only awarded when 100% of the material comes from responsibly managed forests.
