Madagascar Solar and Efficient Cookstoves
Supporters of the Madagascar Solar and Efficient Cookstoves project help support the production and distribution of cookstoves which help reduce communities and families’ reliance on firewood. In addition to decreasing deforestation, these efforts also provide environmental education within Malagasy schools and communities, as well as organize reforestation efforts. The project was developed in partnership with the non-profit organization myclimate and Swiss-Madagascan organization ADES (Association pour le Développement de l'Energy Solaire).

Quote from Native, a Public Benefit Corporation
"Support for this project increases access to cookstoves for families who want them, while supporting employment in the region. We are excited to be supporting this work in what is a heavily deforested region."

Quote from myclimate
"Thanks to the financial contribution of supporters, Native and myclimate support the manufacture and distribution of efficient cookers and climate-friendly solar cookers on Madagascar. With the goal to reduce CO₂ and counter the rapid deforestation on the Island, we also offer information on protecting ecosystems and our project partner plants two seedlings per cookstove."
