We love the Littlbug for lots of reasons. It is, first and foremost, a simple, durable, compact little stove that doesn’t burn fossil fuels. It lights quickly, and burns very little wood (or denatured alcohol) very efficiently. When the stove is combined with the optional fire bowl, this stove leaves no-trace. A donation from the sale of every stove purchased with the LSWC discount code goes to the Lake Superior Conservancy and Watershed Council helping to protect the largest freshwater lake in the world and the watershed that surrounds it. Truly a stove with a conscience.

Gary and Joanie McGuffin have long been wilderness ambassadors for Canada. As renowned Canadian explorers, photojournalists and conservationists, they have captured the imagination of people worldwide with their long distance wilderness voyages. They are the authors of the award winning photographic book Wilderness Ontario and the instructional classic Paddle Your Own Canoe. They were declared official champions of the Great Lakes Heritage Coast by the Ontario government and are recipients of the Ontario Premier’s Award and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for lifetime achievement in exploration, wilderness preservation and environmental education.

While we add value to your outdoor experience, you are adding value to our planet and all that live here. Littlbug Enterprises donates at least 10% of its profits to help care for the Earth and its inhabitants.
