Help us demonstrate the true power of the hearth industry!

Around the world, four billion people still cook using dangerous, smoky open fires, which lead to over four million deaths each year. StoveTeam International is a 501(c)(3) nonproft organization with a mission to make safe, efficient cookstoves possible for every family. So far, our approach of empowering local people to build and distribute cookstoves in their own regions has enabled us to change the lives of over half a million people.

StoveTeam is proud to partner with HPBA to launch the 1000 Stove Challenge, an opportunity for businesses in the hearth industry to demonstrate the true power of stoves as a force for positive change! More info:


StoveTeam's solution to a worldwide health barrier


  • Justa stove
    StoveTeam is currently employing a team of local people in Guatemala to build Justa stoves for families who would otherwise be cooking over smoky open fires. Each stove benefits an average family of nearly 8 people while saving 15 tons of CO2....

  • The Justa cookstove (pronounced “hoo-stuh”), is named after Doña Justa Nuñez who helped design the stove.

    Each Justa cookstove is built in place inside the home by local stove technicians trained by StoveTeam. Each stove benefits an average family of nearly 8 people and provides meaningful employment, while contributing toward a solution to climate change and deforestation.

    The Justa cookstove reduces smoke inside the home to nearly zero, uses half as much wood as an open fire, and saves up to 15 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere over its lifespan, equal to the total yearly output of the average American. Each family is directly involved in building their stove, leading to greater community adoption and project sustainability.
