Chulha Stove

 

A short film from the INDEX site about the award winning, low cost indoor stove designed by Phillips Design.  The stove is filters the smoke before it is released inside the house, or vented outside via a chimney.  It is a modular design that can be built quite easily by the end-user.  Built with low income users in mind who do most of their cooking inside their houses.

Sam's Club Buries Mound

Indeed, as the Oxford, Alabama Mayor Leon Smith says, "What it's going to be is more prettier than it is today."
