STOVES FOR LIFE
Stoves for Life (SFL), a partnership between ECO2 and the Swiss foundation myclimate, uses carbon revenue to subsidize the price of energy efficient wood cook-stoves in rural communities adjacent to Kenya's only remaining lowland rainforest - Kakamega Forest. The purchase of SFL stoves cuts forest wood use in half and reduces the time and money spent collecting wood, creates jobs, and improves the livelihoods of impoverished people while mitigating climate change.
SFL is a CDM Gold Standard registered carbon project (GS769), independently validated by Perry Johnson CDM Services. In the first four years of operation, ECO2 has installed over 25,000 stoves improving the lives of these households who now spend half the time and money collecting wood, provided annual income for over 500 local people, reduced forest wood consumption by more than 30,000 tons (equivalent to 90 acres) per year, and reduced CO2eq emissions by approximately 68,000 tons (equivalent to removing 6,000 U.S. cars from the roads annually).
