Find Your Butterfly Effect: E+Co
How E+Co Does Good
Toyola now manufactures and sells energy efficient cook stoves in urban and rural Ghana. While the stoves use standard charcoal, they are 40% more efficient than the traditional stoves used throughout the region. The result? Far less charcoal is needed to cook, which not only reduces carbon dioxide emissions but saves a great deal of money for families who use the stoves. To date, Toyola has provided this cleaner energy product to 35,000 households, offset 15,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and created jobs for over 200 employees.
Catchafire Pro Bono Impact with E+Co
Jameel Newkirk is used to designing sleek marketing and promotional materials as his day job, and as something he does to give back to organizations he cares about. Jameel found his first pro bono experience with Catchafire so rewarding that he committed to designing E+Co's annual report. E+Co was excited to have such a willing and able professional working with them on a weekly basis. Jameel interpreted E+Co's vision and turned it into a concrete publication. Jameel's work resulted with what E+Co will use as a tool to raise awareness of the urgent energy access issues around the globe, and encourage stakeholders to support E+Co (and through them, great business like Toyola) as they continue to carry out their mission. As you can see he's done an incredible job.
