A team of scientists and engineers is hoping to prevent millions of deaths and protect the environment with a solar-powered cooker - which is 100% recyclable.

SolSource Solar Stove was created by One Earth Designs, an organisation founded in a nomadic home in the Himalayas by Dr Catlin Powers and Scot Frank.

That solar cooker saved the family a lot of fuel for three months, after which it broke.

During its lifetime, each SolSource abates as much carbon dioxide as 40 trees would abate over 100 years.

Imagine the potential if SolSource became the norm for cooking in sunny regions of the world.

One Earth Designs was at the first One Young World expert environment event, which saw young leaders and experts come together to exchange ideas and solutions for the world s most pressing problems.
