Did you know that half of the world’s people must burn wood or dried dung to cook their food? Help them by building a solar cooker, says Michael Norton in his book 365 Ways To Change the World.

Think also of the time spent by poor women gathering sticks and dung to cook their meals. But many of them live under the sun’s blazing heat and it can cook for them! Using a solar-powered cooker in a land where the sun shines nearly every day has to be a win win situation, the book tells us.

 

A solar cooker will help to prevent deforestation and desertification. This causes soil erosion. It saves time for women and might even let young girls go to school. There is no smoke pollution and it reduces injuries, carbon dioxide emittions and helps to reduce greenhouse gases. It can also help to produce safe drinking water!
