Fire glass doesn't burn *itself*, you place it on top of a existing fire so it looks better and retains the heat. Typically it's used with gas fireplaces. But it's still gas you're burning, the glass doesn't replace that.

Also, the glass has to be manufactured as well. First it's heated to over 700°C, then it's cooled rapidly - where the energy for that comes from depends entirely on the producing company.

The stuff may look pretty, but please don't call it "environmentally friendly" just because the energy intense part of the process is done somewhere else.
