Quemador para Tuj: Clean Room Heating and LED Advocacy, IDDS Hogares Sostenibles

Sep 27, 2017

IDDS participants and community partners developed an alternative system for heating the temezcal, a traditional sauna-like structure that is used for bathing in Santa Catarina. Previously heated solely through open flame, which contain smoke that can be dangerous and irritating to lungs and eyes.

Additionally, this team of participants created an educational campaign promoting the use of LED lightbulbs, since although they are initially more expensive they result in lower monthly bills. This report is in Spanish.

This report was created by a team of participants at IDDS Hogares Sostenibles. It aims to share information and knowledge gleaned from the team’s work during the summit.
