EarthEnable is a new and
quickly growing company in Rwanda that also has a social purpose. The company
sells healthy and affordable floors to the 80% of Rwandans who can only afford
to have a dirt floor in their home. Concrete floors have been shown to reduce
disease and improve health but a concrete floor costs up to $450 (~300,000 RWF)
for a 30 square meter home and usually crack quickly.
EarthEnable has invented
an alternative floor that is 70% cheaper than concrete and that has 90% less
embedded energy. EarthEnable’s floors are composed of natural materials
(gravel, clay, sand) and are sealed with a special oil invented at Stanford
University that forms a plastic-like seal on the floor, which makes it
water-proof, hard, smooth, easy to clean, and polished. They are already
prevalent in modern homes in the United States, and our company strives to
become the leader in flooring in Rwanda.
