Fuel-efficient cook stoves dramatically improve indoor air quality – improving health and saving money or time that would otherwise be spent on purchasing or collecting fuel wood. The environment benefits too. Open fires are very inefficient and generate enormous quantities of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases. Cook stoves help reduce these emissions and save trees from being cut down.

Description

Open fires are very inefficient and generate enormous quantities of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases. These are harmful to the health of the women cooking, but also to the atmosphere and planet. It is estimated that 25% of global carbon emissions are produced by the rural poor. Cook stoves help cut these emissions and dramatically improve the indoor air quality.

The average household in Uganda is made up of five people[1]. This means that each cook stove equals five lives impacted. Although mothers are likely to benefit the most from the reduced work and health risks, every member of the household will be positively impacted by the elimination of smoke within the home.

According to our research, a household will typically spend £124 each year on purchasing charcoal. With a fuel-efficient cook stove, families can use 30-50% less fuel, saving trees and offering savings of £50 per year, or £220 over the five-year life of the stove.
