The Wonderbag was developed to ease the social, economic and environmental impacts of the current global circumstances.
The Wonderbag is a non-electric, heat-retention cooker that allows food that has been brought to a boil on a stove fire, to continue cooking for hours after it has been removed from the fuel source.
It’s taken years of passion, energy, and perseverance to get Sarah and the brand where it is today – 600,000 bags distributed in South Africa, first round of carbon credits registered and issued, production capabilities in Rwanda and Turkey, pilots poised to launch in Kenya, Nigeria and Somaliland, and over 4,500 bags sold in the UK, with a buy-one-give-one model to support getting Wonderbags into humanitarian relief.
Reducing CO2 emissions
We live in a world that desperately needs low carbon alternatives. Wonderbag ticks the box.
Every Wonderbag helps the environment by reducing a family’s consumption of fuels like electricity, gas, paraffin and wood. Research shows that when families use a Wonderbag regularly, it can reduce CO2 emissions by 0.5 carbon tonnes per home, per year. That's the same amount produced by a small car every four months.

The Wonderbag is made from an insulated material in which people can cook anything without the use of additional energy and so significantly reduces carbon emissions. Climate Action sat down with Sarah Collins, Wonderbag’s founder, to find out more.

Natural Balance has launched its Wonderbag product in Rwanda and the social enterprise has distributed around 700,000 in South Africa in the last 4 years. Communities in the region will benefit from the cooker that assists carbon offsetting by reducing fuel consumption.
