Institutional Stove Solutions--InStove--is a 501(c)(3) non-profit humanitarian organization founded in 2012. We are dedicated to relieving suffering, improving health, and reducing harm to the environment through the design and delivery of highly efficient biomass cookstoves.
You need a lot of fuel to feed three billion people who still use wood to cook!
- How do you cook this much without deforesting whole countries?
- How do you prevent 5 million deaths annually -- 3.5 million more than AIDS -- from the respiratory diseases caused by cook smoke?
- How do you decrease the assault, rape, and abduction of women who gather the firewood, especially in conflict zones?
- How do you prevent horrendous, life-altering burns caused by cook fires -- or dramaticallyreduce the climate-changing emissions released by all this cooking?
What if there was a solution that addressed all these problems -- all at once?
InStove is about solutions.
