URBAN DEVELOPMENT: ECO STOVE

URBAN DEVELOPMENT: ECO STOVE

Thirteen million acres of forest have been converted for commercial uses or have been destroyed by natural causes. Up to 28,000 species can go extinct in the next quarter of the century due to deforestation and habitat demolition. Indigenous forest people who’ve lived in forests for the longest time are being deprived of their home. As a supplement to this devastation, people in most developing countries use firewood and charcoal for heating their homes and cooking their food. That is why when assisting communities, we introduce an environmentally friendly alternative to firewood – a stove contraption we like to call an Eco-Stove. An Eco-Stove is a provisional and innovative approach towards preventing deforestation as well as keeping the community clean. With an Eco-Stove, individuals make briquettes out of leaves, paper, and garbage collected and use those briquettes in place of actual firewood. This protects the forest-life of the local area, while also keeping the community clean and resourceful. Our AIM plans to provide 1000’s of Eco-Stoves in the future to save our environment.
