These modern cookstoves burn fuel more than twice as efficiently as traditional cookstoves, and thereby reduce fuel use for low-income households, saving them time and money. Clean cookstoves also reduce smoke, carbon dioxide, and black carbon emissions, which are harmful to the environment and human health, most often women and children. We work with Burn Manufacturing, Ecozoom and Envirofitto source our high-performing cookstoves.
In urban and peri-urban areas, there are still households that are not able to access an affordable and reliable connection to the electricity grid. Small shops close before dark, or use polluting and dangerous kerosene to stay open after sunset. Our solar products provide a backup source of lighting and phone charging, and can even provide light to a whole house. We source our solar products from Greenlight Planet, Glenergy and Ecozoom.
