Counter Culture Coffee Supports Clean Cookstoves in Honduras

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Recently, in partnership with Counter Culture Coffee, we built 86 Justa clean cookstoves into the kitchens of Café Orgánico Marcala (COMSA) producers in Marcala, La Paz, Honduras, via the technical assistance provided by La Asociación Hondureña para el Desarrollo (AHDESA). In all, 626 family members of COMSA producers in and around Marcala will benefit from cleaner indoor air, more disposable income, and will use less than half the wood required by their former cookstoves.

Over the lifespan of these cookstoves, 645 tons of CO2 will be avoided, reducing the amount of hazardous greenhouse gases in our global atmosphere that are leading to climate change.

  1. Have you ever heard of on-line radio shows? Just wondering if you have looked at starting
    your on-line show free of charge discussing these topics as well.

    I think they have free online accounts to join, kindly let me know in case you end up
    getting this done!
