My family are the types that like to save on resources as much as possible and like to go on many different camping trips throughout the year. Most places we go there isn’t the electricity available to cook items that may need a slow cooker. Sometimes it is great to just enjoy the outdoors. I love learning about new inventions that will make the world a better place. I love that this helps with reducing the pollution and tree trimming.
The Wonderbag isn’t just an ingenious cooking innovation, it is a catalyst for change. The ingenious non-electric slow cooker uses heat-retention to make the most perfect chili, eggplant parmesan, poached salmon, puddings, french toast and more – the Wonderbag has inspired so many delicious recipes, some by celebrity Chefs like Marcus Samuelson, that they have their own cookbook! Savvy chefs can pop a dish from the stove into their Wonderbag, place it in the trunk, and open a perfectly slow-cooked hot meal when they arrive at their campsite, the slopes or their family gathering.
Founder Sarah Collins, known as both a powerful CEO and an equality innovator, has turned Wonderbag into a multi-million dollar globally conscious enterprise. Collins developed the Wonderbag as a response to the deep inequalities and gender divides that she saw in her native South Africa. She witnessed that many mothers and grandmothers spent most of their days relegated to a stove while many girls were spending 4-6 hours a day gathering firewood instead of going to school. Wonderbag is celebrating 10 years in business this year and new milestones of impact. Over 1.5million Wonderbags have now been activated in the Western and Majority world. Sarah’s extreme dedication, resilience and determination has earned her Fortune Magazine’s Top 10 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs, Oprah’s African Heroines and the Women’s Economic Forum Woman of the Decade for Entrepreneurship.
The Wonderbag is a simple but revolutionary heat retention slow-cooker, which continues to cook food, which has been brought to the boil by fire, cook stoves or any conventional method, for up to 12 hours without the use of any additional fuel source. Over 4 billion people eat from an open fire everyday causing 4 million people to die each year from illness caused by indoor air pollution-related diseases. 50% of deaths from pneumonia of children under 5 are caused by breathing particulates from household air pollution. Wonderbag is a powerful change agent for the Climate. A single Wonderbag, when used for one year can: Reduce carbon emissions by 1 Ton. Reduce deforestation, save 1.7 trees. Conserve 1,000 litres of cooking water. Reduce indoor air pollution by 60%. Reduce time poverty, giving back 1,465 hours per year.
