Treehugger reports that ClimateCare, one of our competitors over in the U.K., has been able to get carbon offsets from a new type of efficient wood stove used in rural third-world communities approved under the international Gold Standard .
The stove helps cut indoor pollution by 70 percent and wood fuel use by 60 percent. That's huge, particularly considering how much deforestation in the developing world is harming the environment.
