Many households today still rely on charcoal and firewood to cook food. While it may be a cheaper alternative to LPG, it’s not necessarily in the best interest of the environment.
AlternaVerde is making available a sustainable and viable form of charcoal made of agricultural waste and biodegradable materials. Where trees are becoming scarce as a result of depleting forests, eco-charcoal makes use of discarded and virtually useless wastes like coconut husk, rice straws and corn cobs which are carbonized and compacted for mass consumption. In addition, eco-charcoal has a higher heating value and lasts longer than regular charcoal.
