Red Fish Media partners with Wonderbag to save the planet. . . one stew at a time!

A Wonderbag is an insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews or vegetable curries to simple rice and soups. You heat up your pot of food on the stove, kick-starting the cooking process, and then place it in the Wonderbag. Wonderbag's clever insulating properties allow food that has been brought to the boil to finish cooking while in the bag without the use of additional energy. So, families can cook appetising hot meals, while saving energy - and money. It also means less time tending cooking food – time that can be better spent looking after children, earning an income or doing essential chores. 

150,000 Wonderbags are already being used in homes across South Africa. Based on actual orders, that figure will rise to at least 5 million over 5 years. 

Red Fish Media has partnered with Wonderbag to mobilize its registration process. A Wonderbag is an eco-friendly, insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews or vegetable curries to simple rice and soups. Red Fish Media developed and currently hosts Wonderbag’s validation and transaction logging platform. This platform enables users in South Africa to register their purchase of the Wonderbag via text message. Wonderbag has made a tremendous environmental impact. It is in 150,000 homes across South Africa and its benefits include the following:

  • It reduces a family's fuel usage by 30% - saving money and easing poverty
  • It reduces CO2 emissions
  • It reduces toxic fumes which means less respiratory problems and other diseases, particularly in children
  • It reduces accidents in the kitchen, because stoves are used less
  • It reduces time spent cooking, giving more time for child-care and other activities
  • It saves precious water. When the pot is insulated in a Wonderbag at a fairly constant temperature, less evaporation occurs, so less water is needed
  • It saves food. 20% of all staple food in Africa is burned, due to pots being placed on open fires and unregulated stove tops. With the Wonderbag no burning happens

Additional Wonderbag partners include:
