ENERY-EFFICIENT COOKSTOVES FOR FOREST PROTECTION AND CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION

Make a positive impact on the environment by offsetting your carbon emissions from home energy use, driving, flying, and household waste -- the majority of your personal carbon footprint.

 
 

OUR SOLUTION

Tui’k Ruch’Lew offers a sustainable and energy-efficient cooking solution that reduces deforestation, avoids household air pollution and helps families to save money.

Tui'k Ruch' Lew focuses on the Tz'utujil Maya communities around the southern shore of Lake Atitlan, in the highlands of Guatemala.

About 60% of the population in Santiago Atitlan are still cooking on open fires.

Cooking with open fires causes damage to native forests and smoke-related health problems.
