Cooking Food With The Sun Is Catching On
For a litmus test on the popular interest in low-carbon alternatives around the home, look no farther than Sun Ovens International. The Illinois-based company will sell 5,700 ovens to U.S. consumers this year -- up from just 1,000 three years ago. As consumers look for ways to lower their impact on the environment, alternatives like these ovens -- which capture the sun's energy to cook food -- are growing into more and more viable business opportunities.
