A Design for the Developing World

The opportunity for designer's to address real world problems with beautiful solutions is a wonderful thing when the results are as nice as the Cookstove by Envirofit.

According to Popular Science magazine, "more than half the world’s population cooks over open fires or small charcoal or biomass stoves. These burn fuel incompletely, producing carbon monoxide and smoke that cause 1.5 million deaths a year. Envirofit’s Cookstove burns the same easily found wood but does so more completely to cut emissions by more than 80 percent and use half as much fuel."
