A social enterprise tackling the climate crisis & empowering communities.


The Wonderbag explained.

Handmade in South Africa, the Wonderbag is a simple, but revolutionary, non-electric slow cooker.

After bringing a pot of food to the boil and placing it in a Wonderbag, the food will continue cooking for up to eight hours without any additional energy source.

No battery, plug or fuel required - just simple heat retention technology.

Change is needed.

Globally, the world is experiencing record energy prices and soaring carbon emissions, placing significant financial pressure on households, and our planet.

In addition, 2.5 billion people still cook over an open fire each day. This causes significant emissions, widespread deforestation, burdens women with hours of unpaid labour, and jeopardizes their health.

 Wonderbag is the solution to this crisis.


The impact.

Empowerment is at the heart of our business.

When a Wonderbag is used by women in developing countries, it transforms lives. Time that was previously spent collecting firewood and tending the fire, can now be spent in education, employment, or setting up their own business.

Wonderbag therefore acts as a catalyst for female empowerment and resilient communities, helping to support all 17 Sustainable Development Goals along the way.


Carbon finance.

When a Wonderbag is used by families in developing countries, it not only empowers individuals and communities, it helps to tackle the climate crisis.

In order to scale up the manufacturing and distribution of Wonderbags, we partner with organizations by selling high-quality, VCS registered, carbon credits.
