Who is LongBurn
LongBurn Ni Nani??
Longburn Sustainable Solutions seeks to transition communites into cleaner renewable energy technologies. We believe that most people don't destroy the environment because they want to, but because they don't have feasible cleaner options available to them.
Over 87% of households in Kenya rely on charcoal or firewood as their main cooking and heating fuel, this effectively means that their demand is ever high which leads to massive forest degradation because Kenya does not have a formalized firewood and charcoal harvesting system.
LongBurn recovers and recycles agricultural biomass and sawdust to manufacture high quality brikets for home and commercial use.
By buying our product you are contributing to the following goals;
• Reduction in the deforestation of Mau Forest Complex

LongBurn Briquettes is not just a bag of coal it is a symbol of the Kenyan Resolve that we have the ability to free ourselves from poverty while safeguarding our environment for future generations.
