The only things we want to leave behind are special memories. That’s why City Bonfires are made with recyclable steel tins, nontoxic soy wax, and all-natural biodegradable briquettes. They are also easy to extinguish by closing the lid, lessening the chance of wildfires or errant flames.

So, when you have your next mini bonfire or campfire, all you have to leave behind is your footprint when you take along City Bonfires, whether on the balcony in your favorite city or high on a mountaintop.

Here are a few of the most beautiful places on Earth that our fans have brought City Bonfires.

Making s’mores on the top of a snowy mountain with a fantastic view of the Canadian Rockies is not hard at all.

They are perfect for packing in a backpack and have all you need to enjoy this favorite wintertime treat.

City Bonfire Portable Fire Pits are highly portable. They are only 4” x 2” and can easily fit in a tackle box or a pocket in your fishing vest or hiking pants. They are reusable and last three to five hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to take a few bonfire breaks or pit stops to enjoy nature while cozying up to a mini campfire.

Safe, Eco-Friendly Mini Campfire

State and national parks are some of our Earth’s most precious treasures. City Bonfires makes it safer to enjoy a mini campfire while visiting one since it’s easy to extinguish by simply closing the lid. They can often be used even when there is a fire ban. However, you’ll need to check with the local authorities, camping/RV park, or state/national park first to see if they are allowed.

There is no soot or ashes left behind, they are easy to light, and they stay lit, even in high winds. And, when you’re done, all you have to do is clean the tin after it cools down and recycle it, leaving nothing behind except the beach as you found it!
