Food With Benefits Support Clean Cooking

Enjoy great food & 

support Clean Cooking

Together we can do this

Toxic smoke of household cooking kills one person prematurely every 6 seconds, that is 4.300.000 people every year.

The worst part is that it is a very unknown problem, but still kills more than HIV/AIDS and Malaria combined.

Therefore, clean cooking projects is changing the lives of millions of people in four important ways.

Your support is used to provide cookstoves that are:

Food With Benefits Cleaner Cooking Stoves

Cleaner

Toxic smoke of household cooking with charcoal or paraffin kills 4,3 million people annually (more than HIV/AIDS and Malaria combined). It also accounts for more than 15% of all global CO2 emission. Thanks to the gasifying process in our stoves the fuel burns smoke free, without the toxic vapors of ‘the silent killer in the kitchen’

Food With Benefits Cheaper Cooking Stoves

Cheaper

For those at the base of the pyramid, up to 40% of the household income is spent on fuel. Money that is saved using the wood pellets that our stoves are using, instead of the expensive paraffin, electricity or gas. Our social enterprise model makes the partially sponsored stoves affordable for even the poorest of the poor giving them the possibility to improve their lives.

Food With Benefits Safer Cooking Stoves

Safer

South Africa alone faces 45.000 township fires per year. Many are caused by unsafe cooking on open fire or stoves that use highly flammable toxic fluids. The neat and stable Clean Cook stoves, that works on easy to use woodpellets, prevents disastrous household fires in the vulnerable informal settlements.
Food With Benefits Healthier Cooking Stoves

Healthier

Basic knowledge of nutrition and food is lacking for the bigger part for those who would benefit most. Our alliance with local NGO’s and educational institutions ensure people get educated how to most efficiently cook on the stove and what diet choices they have available. Every new woman buying a Clean Cook stove will attend one or more health workshops.

Achieving 10 of 17 Sustainable Development Goals
with Clean cooking 

By developing a thriving global market for cleaner, more modern stoves and fuels, we can change the way the world cooks and transform lives, protect the climate and the environment, empower women, and help millions of people around the world save time and money. Clean cooking can contribute to an enabling environment for achieving the entire Agenda 2030 and directly deliver across 10 of the 17 SDGs.

1. No poverty

Clean cooking is part of the basic services necessary to lead a healthy and productive life and saves households time and money.

2. Zero hunger

Efficient cookstoves reduce the amount of fuel needed to cook, thus reducing the burden on families who would otherwise have to collect it, buy it, or trade their food for it.

3. Good health and well-being

Reducing smoke emissions from cooking decreases the burden of disease associated with household air pollution and improves well-being, especially for women and children.

4. Quality education

Children, particularly girls, are often kept out of school so that they can contribute to household tasks, like cooking and collecting fuel. On average, women and girls can spend up to 10 hours per week collecting fuel for cooking, taking away time that could be spent going to school or studying. 

5. Gender equality

Unpaid work, including collecting fuel and cooking, remains a major cause of gender inequality. Women and girls, who often spend hours inhaling toxic fumes, are also disproportionately affected by the negative health impacts of cooking with inefficient stoves and fuels

7. Affordable and clean energy

Clean cooking is essential to addressing energy poverty and ensuring sustainable energy security for billions of people.

Decent work and economic growth

Energy access enables enhanced productivity and inclusive economic growth. The clean cooking sector offers many job opportunities.

Sustainable cities and communities

Clean cooking addresses household and ambient air pollution, resource efficiency, and climate vulnerability.

Climate action

Up to 58% of black carbon emissions come from burning solid fuels for cooking and heating in homes. Clean cooking solutions address the most basic needs of the poor, while also delivering climate benefits.

Life on land

Up to 34% of woodfuel harvested is unsustainable, contributing to forest degradation, deforestation, and climate change.
