GreenChar produces and distributes affordable and highquality
charcoal briquettes made from agricultural waste.
Through a distribution model powered by women and
youth, we distribute our products to households in rural,
peri-urban and urban slums in Kenya. These households
spend an average of $1.50 per day and traditionally use
wood-based charcoal or firewood for cooking. These fuels
emit heavy smoke, causing a host of health problems related
to household air pollution. GreenChar’s briquettes are up to
30% cheaper, nearly smokeless, higher energy, and longer
lasting than conventional wood charcoal and firewood.
Beyond the direct benefits to our customers, our briquettes
also curb local deforestation and reduce CO2-related
