Win an Eco-Friendly Cookstove from EcoZoom! {ARV $119; ends 8/11}

I am thrilled to spread the word about EcoZoom, a social venture with a mission to design, manufacture, and distribute “clean” biomass cookstoves around the world. EcoZoom addresses the very serious global issue of respiratory disease from indoor air pollution – the 4th leading cause of death in the developing world – by offering portable stoves that reduce fuel use by over 50% and harmful emissions like CO2 and methane by over 70%.

EcoZoom’s web site explains the need for clean cookstoves:

Three billion people – half the world’s population – need a safer way to cook.

According to “The Energy Access Situation in Developing Countries”, a review completed by the World Health Organization and United Nations Development Program, 91% of the population in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) is without access to modern fuels. LDCs have 3 billion people – half the world’s population – relying on solid fuels of biomass and coal for their cooking needs. They primarily cook on open fires or unimproved cookstoves. These cooking methods cause problems for these people and the environment.

Women and children are most affected by these issues as they face problems due to smoke inhalation and personal safety. Imagine spending 4 – 6 hours of your day collecting fuel to cook ans spending the majority of your income on charcoal!

This is where EcoZoom comes in:

EcoZoom is a for-profit, certified B Corp that makes clean cookstoves accessible and affordable in developing countries. We work to empower local workforces, economies and women while creating financially sustainable markets.

Thanks to EcoZoom’s Z+ Program, every time someone purchases a stove, they will deliver a stove to a cook in need in a developing country.

wood stoveWhy should you purchase an EcoZoom cookstove for your family?
– It’s a green way to cook in your own backyard or while camping – whether you’re on a balcony, the beach, or in the middle of the woods!

– It’s a fun, easy, and safe way for your family to cook together!

– You can use it for a new hobby like canning or brewing beer.

– You’ll be prepared for an emergency! I have lost power for as long as nine days due to storms, so I love the idea of having this around as an emergency preparedness tool.

    This is a great product. Heavy duty, efficient, and handy. Great for emergencies or camping. I’ve used both wood and coal in it to test it and the item preformed very well with both.

  2. Melissa VandenBerg says

    I was very impressed by their international outreach program. 3 billion people with needs to be able to cook….makes me realize how much I have! I love that its so eco friendly….thats so positive in todays world!

    I love that they think globally….a safe cookstove for the impoverished is also a cookstove in an emergency for those who are not living in poverty.

    I am impressed that EcoZoom replaced 10,000 inefficient, dangerous stoves or open fires in Mexico! It is rare to hear of such generosity from a commercial company!

    I liked how they showed pictures of people in villages realy using them and not just saying it like a Pr stunt.

  6. Paige Kelley says

    I really like that it stays cool to the touch.. then we don’t have to worry so much about the kids! And that there are more than one fuel option :)

  7. Sunnie says

    I like that it stays cool and is good for an emergency. I live in the country and we can get some pretty hairy storms out here.

    I am impressed that they are a company that cares! About the earth and about people’s safety internationally.

    This would be fantastic for emergencies! Also small and easy to transport for camping. I love that replace dangerous, inefficient stoves and open cooking fires in Mexico.

    I love that they are producing these for use in underdeveloped countries. My niece was in Lesotho in the Peace Corps and I think this would have worked much better than the solar oven we sent her.

  11. amy williams says

    I like that it is eco friendly and stays cool to the touch which is handy with little ones running around.

  12. Missy L says

    I like that this doesn’t use traditional fuel sources. It truly would be perfect for an emergency situation. Or just any time!

  13. Angela Hartness says

    I like that EcoZoom believes that people of any economic status should have access to beautifully designed cooking products that will improve their health, income, and environment. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    i didn’t know about the Z+ program that donates a stove for every one bought. I also didn’t know that the Elephant Energy program, which I’d heard of, helps support the Navajo Nation in the states.
