Weekend World Change


What better way to spend the weekend than helping make the world a better place? I’m going to start a new weekend blog tradition (along the vein of Positive Post Tuesday and Watercooler Wednesday) where I’ll post one simple, practical way to make a difference in the world, and then you can do the same on your blog. 

This weekend’s world-changer is the Berkeley Darfur ultra high-efficiency cook stove.

For $20, you can purchase a high-efficiency stove for refugees in Darfur. The stove:

  • Can be built in Sudan by locals, enabling them to earn extra income and become part of the solution
  • Is suited to local high-temperature and high-wind outdoor cooking methods
  • Emits less smoke than other stoves, minimizing smoke inhalation
  • Uses up to 75% less fuel, enabling women to minimize the dangerous 7-hour treks outside the camps to gather wood
  • Helps the denuded environment recover from severe overharvesting

Check it out. 

If you’ve got a better, catchier name for these posts, I’d love to hear it.
