Frontline social entrepreneur, Envirofit International, is pioneering eco –efficient and pocket-friendly cooking solutions in Africa. Reports show that 90% of all deforestation in Africa is used for energy consumption. Quest for bio fuel in Africa has led to massive deforestation in the region. African households travel long distances to fetch firewood to cook their meal. The mass of firewood consumed to cook a pot of meal raises more concern on the environmental impact of the traditional cooking technology, even as 90%of the fuel’s energy is wasted when using an open fire. It is also estimated 1 billion tons of CO2 are produced by cooking fires each year.
Health-wise, the traditional bio-fuel- intense cooking method poses great health challenges: health experts warn that cooking over an open fire is equivalent to being exposed to 400 Cigarettes an hour. Women and children primarily bear the burden of cooking and collecting firewood thus exposing them to violence and risking their lives daily. These women and children can spend as much as 6 hours per day ccollecting wood for cooking. Pocket-wise, an average African household spends about 30% of annual income on cooking fuel.
