2012 TGAL fundraising and awareness campaign
BEAN is partnering with local nonprofit SeaChar.org, based in Fremont
SeaChar.org has developed the Estufa Finca cook-stove in order to mitigate the harmful effects of traditional unsustainable biomass energy on community and environmental health.
The objectives of their current project in the Talamanca region of Costa Rica is three-fold:
o Create local jobs in production and sales
o Promote positive tools for carbon negative living
o Eliminate smoke inhalation and open flame injuries.
Preventable respiratory disease is the leading cause of death for children under 10 years of age in this area.
As an added bonus, the material these stoves use burn clean and improve fuel efficiency, resulting in a charcoal by-product which can be sold for additional income for these families.
