Breathe Easy

In Cambodia, more than 80% of energy needs are met by the burning of wood, sourced through the unsustainable logging of native forests. The smoke from traditional stoves present significant respiratory, heart and eye problems. The New Lao Stove Project has introduced a cleaner, more
efficient stove that reduces the combustion of wood by 22%.

Local stove producers and distributors have been engaged to develop a commercialised supply chain, creating local employment and training. Today the project is the main income generating activity of over 3000 people. The new stoves feature improved design and insulation whilst remaining intentionally similar to traditional South East Asian stoves.
