Lighter, running on solar energy

It is now difficult to calculate how much wood goes into the creation of matches, and how much metal, plastic and natural gas to ensure the operation of the compact lighters. Still a subject of debate that has a smaller ecological footprint – matches of, in General, renewable wood, or lighter – reusable, but are more expensive.

The sling holder is inserted a piece of wood, paper, moss, dry alcohol or another solid fuel, and being exposed to the sun, the lighter quickly ignites mounted to the fork object.
