ToughStuff's mission is to bring affordable energy products to people without access to electricity thereby helping increase living standards, improve health, enhance the environment, and build enterprise and employment.
ToughStuff provides affordable energy to the 1.4 billion people who do not have access to electricity. Our products replace harmful alternatives and in turn, create social and environmental benefits. Because our products are so inexpensive, they offer huge financial savings too.
ToughStuff products typically retail for around $10 or less and have payback times of just 2-3 months. For the life of the product, customers benefit from free energy, saving around $100 per year.
Selling our products creates local employment. Our micro-enterprise program
