Project type: Energy efficiency - household
Price: 13.50 US$/t (1ton is enough to offset approx. 110gal of gasoline, 1350kWh of electricity or 4.5 hours of flight time)
This project provides cook stoves to families in Malawi, Africa. The project is run by Ripple Africa, a UK based charity. Cook stoves replace the traditional way off cooking with open fire between three rocks which is highly inefficient and consumes large amounts of fuel (i.e. wood). Thus families will breath cleaner air and spend less time gathering wood so they can play with their children instead. To find out more about this project, click here.
More information on clean cook stoves and their impact can be found here.
