Sempra Foundation Donates Nearly $500,000 To Provide Cleaner Cook Stoves To Mexico Communities
The cook stoves are replacing three-stone stoves or U-type stoves that openly burn firewood and are expected to reduce the consumption of firewood by about 9,000 tons per year. Burning firewood exposes these communities to smoke and indoor air pollution, especially affecting women and children who spend more time in the household. The cook stoves are also portable and can be used to prepare food to be sold at local markets, serving as a source of income and supporting the economic prosperity of the families and communities in these areas. Additionally, the cook stoves can be used as heaters for families who may not have another heat source during the winter months.
