The Global Need
The United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that more than 3 billion people lack adequate cooking fuels. (3 billion people is 2,400,000,000 people - nearly 8 times the population of the United States of America.) In developing countries, many people spend as much money on fuel to cook their food as they spend on buying food.Others spend over 40 hours a-week gathering scarce firewood. Total regions have been stripped of trees.
Solar cooking has been researched and tested for the past twenty-five years. The Sport is one of the best, low cost solar ovens to come out of this era of research and development.
For developing nations that are sun rich and fuel poor, the Solar Oven Society's Sport Solar Oven can use free sunshine to cook meats, vegetables, breads and cakes and cut down on the need for cooking fires.
Cooking fires contribute to deforestation and pollution
