The Killer in the Kitchen

Here is a great article about the ongoing women’s health study being conducted in Nicaragua with women and children who use our Ecostoves. We have partnered with Dr. Jennifer Peel and some of her students from Colorado State University to study the effects of indoor air pollution on women and their children. The Nicaragua Cook Stove Project sheds light on the health issues faced by families in developing countries and the available technology to help reduce deadly indoor air pollution.

  1. Wouldn’t a combination of eco-stoves and solar cookers result in even less smoke in the kitchen? Solar cookers mean less pollution.

  2. I have been searching high and low for the design plans for the ecostove. It would be a great addition to our earthbag dome. If you can direct me to where I can get a copy, I’d appreciate it very much. Thanks.
