When is a 2-liter bottle a light bulb? When it’s a “Liter of Light!”
Not everyone in the world has reliable access to electricity, but thanks to Liter of Light, those without can have access to lighting using solar power and simple circuitry. Volunteers and partners from around the globe travel to teach communities how to create solar lights with recycled plastic bottles and locally sourced materials. Other green skills are taught to local entrepreneurs in order to keep the movement going and share the light.
Thanks to their efforts, Liter of Light has created more than 350,000 bottle lights in over 15 countries. Learn more and find out how to make your own bottle light.
