We save lives and forests

What we do

StoveTeam helps local entrepreneurs establish factories in Latin America. These self-sustaining businesses produce safe, affordable, fuel-efficient cookstoves to replace dangerous open cooking fires. Ecocina factories have produced more than 56,334 stoves, improving the lives of more than 422,505 people.

StoveTeam's model has been awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Award for Developing Local Markets for our innovative approach creating local employment while improving health and reducing air pollution.

Start a project to build a factory. Volunteer to help with the construction or involve your Rotary club to help a local entrepreneur get started.

The Ecocina
