If someone were to ask you how much it would cost to make a device that can cook food, sterilize water, and help 3 billion people cut their greenhouse gas emissions, you’d never guess the answer would be $6. But that’s how much the award winning design, dubbed the Kyoto Box, is going to cost to produce. It recently won the Financial Times Climate Change Challenge grand prize of $75,000 and now they’ll be able to ramp up production on the solar powered cardboard box. The box will be made available to impoverished nations that traditionally use firewood to cook, or for those who have no access to sterilized water. Who would have thought a cardboard box could make such a difference?
