A carbon offset project building healthy, fuel efficient cookstoves in Honduras

Our carbon offset project builds clean cookstoves that improve the health and environment for Honduras rural poor by:

Spending 4-6 hours a week gathering firewood is a drag. Our Dos por Tres stove cuts the time in half.

Users don’t “buy a stove” but co-invest in their stove by supplying local materials. Here’s why we have a no cash model and engineered the stove to last.

We all emit carbon pollution into the atmosphere every day. Installing an Improved Stove like ours reduces CO2 emissions.

Our stove is built from scratch from local materials; we support construction companies, brick makers and steel workers among others.
