CPHs or Clay Pot Heaters

In Social Studies, students have been examining how natural balance has been lost in Kathmandu, as well as the effects of the fuel crisis. Students are beginning to explore ways to minimize impact and reduce resource consumption. We were lucky to have Ms. Cri come in as a guest speaker to teach the students about one of the ways Mr. Ken and her work to reduce consumption and stay warm. Ms. Cri showed the students how to build the clay pot heaters and taught about the reduced environmental impact. CPHs  are a series of three clay pots bolted together. Small candles are lit within, with the smoke pollution being captured by the clay pots. CPHs can warm a small space. Stay tuned for more details on how to reduce your environmental impact.
