The Best Environmentally Friendly Eco Stoves

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Recently, there have been a few questions around whether wood burners are bad for the environment or if stoves cause air pollution. Some people even began reporting that wood burning stoves are going to be banned!

While burning wood does release carbon and smoke into the atmosphere, today’s eco stoves do a great job of significantly reducing any negative impacts. When burnt correctly, wood is a carbon neutral source of fuel that can be an efficient way of heating your home.

Buying an EcoDesign stove is one of the best ways to burn wood cleanly and efficiently. According to the Stove Industry Alliance, the technology used by an EcoDesign Stove produces an amazing 90% fewer emissions than an open fire, and 80% less than a typical 10 year old stove.
