An alternative fuel source: Make charcoal briquettes from banana peels

The script of the week was chosen to complement the two stories on cookstoves in this week’s FRW. As firewood becomes scarce, people search for alternative fuels.

This innovation uses easily available resources, and could save many trees.  To find out  how to make banana briquettes, read the script here.
