Smokeless Stoves - The benefits

March 1, 2011 - 08:55

Habitat for Humanity Guatemala helps families to build smokeless stoves that are safe, well-ventilated and burn efficiently, reducing the amount of wood that each family needs to survive and removing nearly all the smoke from the home. They provide a stable and safe surface around the stove that can be used for food preparation before cooking, and which keeps hot pots and pans outside the reach of wandering little hands. Safe and efficient, Habitat eco-stoves better the health and economy of families while at the same time preserving their customs and culinary traditions.
