Surprising Sustainability Solution for Electric Power

Portland has installed hydoelectric turbines in in one of the main  city water pipes. The turbines utilize the water from flushed toilets to produce electricity. 

The turbines work where water is flowing downhill, and are already recouping some of the energy cost in keeping the water system running.  When fully in place, these pipe generators can power hundreds of thousands of homes.

We are a small Cornish company who design portable stoves for the aid world and for camping. Hope it's OK to post here - it's for a good cause!

We've recently launched our newest portable woodburner for tents, vans and tiny houses on Kickstarter. We will be using the campaign to help us send 100 stoves out to families still living in emergency shelters in Nepal after the earthquake.

Please check out the campaign here http://kck.st/1IDFgRc. We would hugely appreciate it if you would share it with your networks and help us to get the word out. Thank you!
A lightweight, folding stove with a flue for heating and cooking in tents, sheds, vans and the outdoors. Join the woodfuel revolution!
