As electricity load shedding continues,  and poverty levels continue to rise some opt to use firewood instead of electricity, others simply have no electricity. These are some of the factors that have seen the demand for firewood shooting up in urban areas. When we started doing mushrooms we used firewood to fire our boilers for sterilisation which caused damage to the environment. I learnt how to use the sawdust stove from Epworth residents.  This has led us to stop using firewood and use sawdust from  factories and sawmills.  This decision tackled two challenges: Reduce impact on deforestation and management of industrial waste.
