By teaching Costa Rican’s to use agricultural “waste” (fallen leaves and trees, discarded cocoa pods, etc.), instead of harvested trees as the cooking fuel for their farm stoves they are: 

  • Curtailing deforestation and creating clean heat 
  • Reducing harmful carbon monoxide emissions by 87%, and respiratory threatening particulate matter emissions by 92% compared to an open fire, and 
  • Producing biochar which is allowing farmers to naturally control their soil’s fertility
