" With raw waste going into the ground, while thousands die each year from pollution, we knew we had to do something."
In Kenya alone,
21,500 people die
each year from
caused by cooking and heating
using solid fuels.
Those most affected are women, and children under the age of 5.
In addition, charcoal production and use produces 15 Billion tons of C-CO2 annually.
At the same time untreated disposal of abattoir waste poisons water tables and causes human disease.
