Why Patsari Stoves?
Nearly 3 billion people around the globe cook on open fires inside their homes. Many children suffer burns from open flames and hot coals. Diseases caused by breathing smoke make indoor cooking fires the leading cause of death in the developing world, especially for women and children.
ECOLIFE aims to change this with ouR Patsari Stove.
The Patsari Stove
A highly efficient combustion chamber sits at the heart of every sturdy, brick-walled stove. pre-fabricated chimneys funnel smoke outside the houses and the cooking surfaces are sealed to keep smoke from leaking into the house. Children can play inside safely since the fire is off the ground and contained in cool brick walls.
ECOLIFE Conservation has been building the Patsari Stove within a fifteen-kilometer radius surrounding the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve in Central Mexico for 20 years. Our team began building stoves at the southern end of the reserve. The word is steadily spreading from community to community, making its way up and around the reserve’s perimeter. We employ local masons in each community to construct and maintain the stoves. So far, ECOLIFE has built over 13,000 stoves. We have 27,000 more stoves to go to complete the mission of surrounding the reserve and saving thousands of lives.
