Purity W’Njema: Renewable-Energy Convert

“The briquettes are cheap, economical, and they don’t create smoke, which is very damaging to our health.”

Kenyan Purity W’Njema says using biomass briquettes save her time and energy. This work is part of the Rainforest Alliance’s efforts, supported by the IKEA Foundation, to catalyze a renewable-energy transformation in Kenya’s tea landscapes. Our aim is to stop deforestation, create sustainable, long-term employment for renewable-energy entrepreneurs, and improve health outcomes in tea-farming communities. Learn more about this project.
