EcoZoom is a social enterprise and certified B Corporation that makes fuel efficient cookstoves and solar powered lighting. We believe cooking should be healthy, efficient and eco-friendly for everyone- regardless of socio-economic status. Millions of people in developing countries do not have access to electricity or gas. They light their homes using kerosene and cook on unhealthy, inefficient open fires. Women and children can spend hours daily gathering fuel. Families end up spending up to 30% of their monthly income on fuel, forcing them into energy poverty.
EcoZoom cookstoves offer a solution that is healthy, efficient and eco-friendly. Our stoves use up to 70% less fuel than open fires or traditional stoves, and they reduce smoke and harmful emissions by up to 60%. People are using our stoves in countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico, Zambia and Papua New Guinea, among others.
In more developed countries our stoves are used for outdoor cooking, camping and emergency preparedness. Unlike other outdoor cooking methods, our stoves don't rely on gas fuel or lengthy preparation. They use firewood, charcoal or solid biomass and have a lifetime of more than 5 years.
Fuel efficient, durable and safe to use- people are using our stoves in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Japan and South Korea, among others.
