This photo shows the CookSack in use in Nepal. The natives rely primarily on open fires for their cooking. As there is virtually no wood available to burn, they most often use dried animal dung. The consequence of this activity is a very high incidence of sickness and disease. (See lower photo of typical cooking arrangments.)
By utilizing the CookSack, they are able to avoid the use of such fuels, while minimizing the impact on their fragile environment. (See top photo.)
