In the summer of 2019, BluLite Bonfires began digging and building wood-burning bonfire experiences for locals and tourists alike. The following summer, the world came to a pause as the Covid-19 pandemic forced months of minimal human contact in public areas. As the weeks turned into months the BluLite brothers began to notice the local shorelines looking more pristine than ever before. As the world changed, so did the BluLite brothers’ motives. This sparked their vision to create cleaner, brighter bonfires for beach dwellers to enjoy, responsibly for years to come.

The BluLite brothers listened as community members voiced their concerns about unsafe bonfire practices and the hazardous materials left behind. By replacing firewood with propane tanks, along with other traditional bonfire amenities with durable eco conscious substitutes, they are committed to creating memorable beach experiences that help to improve and sustain the beach community now and in the future.

Depending on the event size, the BluLite team will thoroughly assemble an event plan meeting your specific needs and proper pollution cleaning radii. They provide pre and post-event setups and beach cleans, while also tracking the amount of pollution they collect at each event. They then take the time to upload all their data to their pollution map, as way to hold themselves accountable for their individual beach events.
