The challenge

Many households rely upon traditional cook-stoves or open flames for cooking and heating. These methods are cost-intensive, create toxic exhaust, and contribute to deforestation and other environmental impacts.

The innovation

Burn locally manufactures cook-stoves that use half as much charcoal or firewood and reducing carbon emissions by 62%. By accessing cleaner and more efficient cook-stoves and fuels, families can dramatically reduce exposure to harmful cooking smoke and improve their health, reduce fuel costs, and cut down on forest degradation.

The impact

To date, Burn has reached over 2.1 million people who have used the stoves to lower carbon emissions and save more than $130 million through reduced fuel consumption, saving 2.4 million tons of trees so far. Burn currently employs 230+ people, over half of whom are women.
