The Hongera Energy Efficient Cookstoves Project in Kenya, spanning Mt Kenya and the Aberdare regions, locally manufactures and distributes energy-efficient cookstoves that redefine efficiency, sustainability, and household health. These stoves reduce firewood consumption, alleviating pressure on local forests and promoting a healthier planet.
One of the unique aspects of this initiative is its local focus. These locally-made cookstoves are tailored to the needs of communities, ensuring practicality while embracing sustainability and creating job opportunities. Their local relevance fosters a global ripple effect.
Beyond environmental benefits, the project significantly improves community wellbeing. By reducing indoor air pollution and cooking time, these cookstoves decrease the risk of respiratory diseases, improving health and saving time and resources for local communities.

The Hongera Energy Efficient Cookstoves Project isn't confined to local boundaries. It's a global model of sustainability. DGB Group's commitment to community engagement ensures that local needs and global priorities align, making this project resonate worldwide.
PlanetPlay, with its commitment to green campaigns, plays a pivotal role. By integrating DGB's carbon credits into its gaming platforms, including Subway Surfers—a popular endless runner mobile game, it bridges virtual gaming with real-world environmental action. Gamers worldwide now have the opportunity to contribute to the environment.

J Balvin's (a renowned Reggaeton artist) inclusion as a playable character in Subway Surfers goes beyond gaming. His avatar offers players a tangible way to make a real-world impact. A portion of the proceeds from in-game character purchases contributes to the cookstove project, powering the project’s positive impacts.
This dynamic partnership between DGB, PlanetPlay, Subway Surfers, and J Balvin showcases how carbon credits translate into real-life change. It's a shining example of how global gaming communities can join hands to offset carbon emissions, restore nature, and create a greener, healthier planet.
