LONDON, UK -- The Kyoto Box is a solar-powered cooker made of cardboard that can boil 10 liters of water in two hours and reduce the need for firewood, which will not only enhance the lives of millions in developing countries, it will shave about 2 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions from the carbon footprints of the families who use it.
Most of the world has to use charcoal to boil water. It destroys trees (carbon sinks) and releases pollutants and greenhouse gases. The rest of us use energy-intensive techniques like gas and electric stoves. Something simply like this very well-designed solar cooker could give the world safe water while helping the environment.
