Cooking shouldn’t kill. But it does, and it’s the largest killer in the world.
4 million people die every year from diseases that trace back to smoke from indoor cooking fires. Our life-saving stoves funnel smoke out of homes.
What Sets Our Stoves Apart?
Our commitment to longevity and cultural consideration makes our stove program successful. Every ECOLIFE stove:
Less Smoke, More Family Time
For communities all over the world, a stove is more than just a means of cooking. It’s a place where recipes are passed down, where families gather to cook dinner and share stories. But for millions, a cooking fire in their home is also a constant health threat. Our safe, fuel-efficient stoves create a center in the house where families can cook together rain or shine.
When I have visitors, everyone congratulates me on my Patsari – everyone likes it! My family now gathers in the kitchen to eat together because the smoke is all funneled outside.
