Zafree is changing the face of the paper industry.
By using crop-residue as an input instead of wood, Zafree:
1. Saves trees from being cut
2. Prevents farmers from burning crop-residue which leads to air pollution
3. Provides an additional income for over 8,000 smallholder farmers in Ethiopia by buying their crop-residue to produce paper pulp.
The Ethiopian-based company already has a strong customer pipeline not only in Ethiopia, but all over Africa. It recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for the next phase of its growth plan.
