Here at EcoLogic, we are thankful for you and the many supporters that have helped us make our fuel-efficient stove program possible. Because of supporters like you, we have been able to expand our program from Guatemala into Honduras. By the end of the year we will have made over 50 new stoves!

When EcoLogic’s fuel-efficient stoves are used in homes, they not only conserve the environment but improve the health of the community. Fuel-efficient stoves decrease the amount of deadly fumes that women and children breathe inside the home and conserve fragile ecosystems by protecting forests. There is a 60% reduction in fuel-wood consumption when using our fuel-efficient stoves. These families are also making a better life for themselves and protecting their land for their children.

During this season of giving, join EcoLogic's efforts by inviting your friends to make a gift. Now and through the end of the year, all new donations will be matched! A generous donor has pledged to match dollar-for-dollar gifts made through the end of the year from all new donors.

On behalf of EcoLogic and the people we work with, thank you for your willingness to make a difference and thank you for helping us share our important work with others.
