Ashadesh is a not for profit social enterprise working to enable families living in the slums of Kolkata, India to switch from primitive, smoky stoves that deal disease and death to clean burning ones.
To do this we are in the business of carbon offsets, which are generated by enabling families in the slums to access clean burning stoves, thereby also reducing carbon emissions. By buying carbon offsets you will not only reduce your own carbon footprint, but also contribute to a number of other good health and social benefits for the poor in Kolkata. Take a look through the site to learn more about the project, or see an overview of what we do here.
