Newsprint. Can be used as tinder.
In-game description

Newsprint is a material in The Long Dark.

A newsprint can be used as tinder when lighting a fire.

Overview Edit

Newsprint fills the role of tinder, which is required to start a fire. Newsprint is heavier than most other types of tinder. Rather than using this newsprint as tinder alone, however, it is more efficient to harvest the newspaper and receive two tinder plugs, doubling the number of total uses.
