Grounded in Community is partnering with Elephant Origins to provide clean cookstoves to tea workers on elephant-friendly certified tea gardens.
Wood burning stoves generate dangerous levels of indoor air pollution as well as black carbon.
Community members who live on the fringes of elephant habitat sometimes out of necessity collect wood from protected forests.
Replacing wood burning stoves with more efficient eco-stoves reduces carbon emissions and human-elephant conflicts.
100% of your donation will go towards the purchase of an eco-stove for tea workers in elephant-friendly certified tea gardens. Efficient, low-polluting cookstoves reduce fine particulate matter and carbon monoxide exposure, improving the respiratory health of people while mitigating black carbon. Clean cookstoves help elephants as well by reducing habitat degradation caused by collecting wood for cookstove fires.
