World Water Day

Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater, which is used for drinking water, sanitation, growing food and supporting ecosystems. Climate change, overuse and pollution has made freshwater a threatened resource. How can you reduce your impact?

  1. Close your taps while not in use and reduce showering time.
  2. Don't flush tissues, pads, or waste that cannot easily break down.
  3. Install water-efficient fixtures and/or rainwater harvesting techniques.

Ecostoof

The Ecostoof is a clever cooking tool inspired by the haybox, a cooking technique from the 19th century that uses the insulating power of hay to slow cook food. Using this tool not only conserves energy by reducing active heating time, but the gentle cooking preserves the nutrients in your food. When spending the night in nature, simply bring your pot to a boil at home and bundle it in the insulated bag ahead of time and it will cook to perfection during your journey.
