Description
Grateful for innovation and simple ideas, beautifully executed: Sarah Collins' Wonderbag slow-cooker continues to cook food that has been brought to the boil without additional fuel.

Wonderbag has many benefits in Africa…

Saves 30% of annual household income - saving money and easing poverty
It reduces CO2 emissions
Less deforestation because families need less firewood to cook
It reduces toxic fumes which means less respiratory problems and other diseases, particularly in children
It reduces time spent cooking, giving more time for child-care and other activities
It saves precious water. When the pot is insulated in a Wonderbag at a fairly constant temperature, less evaporation occurs, so less water is needed
It saves food. 20% of all staple food in Africa is burned, due to pots being placed on open fires and unregulated stove tops. With Wonderbag, no burning occurs
