Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Cooking for the world's poorest community members.

How is the problem solved?

We will facilitate community members to turn local waste into heat retention cook bags, which in turn will de-stress water supplies and fuel wood/dung harvesting.

What is the customer target?

The poorest. I have started in Lesotho, where we wish to scale and replicate our model. Could polluters pay?

How is this solution different?

The Eco Cook Bag is unlike the others (I've tried!) as it requires no maintenance and while initially, it seems impossible - once used - it is embraced like the introduction of a mobile phone. Its users save time, water, and fuel, and are smoke-free. We have university research detailing profound impact.
