StoveTeam International promotes the local production, distribution, and proper use of safe, affordable, fuel-efficient cookstoves to replace indoor open-fire cooking in Latin America.

StoveTeam's innovative model for assisting entrepreneurs in Latin America has been awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Award for Developing Local Markets for creating local employment while improving health and reducing air pollution. To date, local factories started by StoveTeam have produced more than 76,300 stoves, improving the lives of more than half a million people and preventing nearly one million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

Forest came to StoveTeam after 6 years in Los Angeles where he was instrumental in the rapid growth and development of a local organization. An Oregon native and graduate of the University of Oregon, Forest is excited to use his business experience to effect change he believes in.
