Old Plastic Bottles Bring Light (to the darkness)

Recycled plastic water bottles are helping bring light to rural Phillapine homes

Millions of people in the Philippines live in (relative) darkness. The cost of electricity is beyond the means of many, so residents of poorer communities resort to candles or kerosene lamps, which pose serious health and fire hazards.

Using electricity 24 hours per day, something most of us take for granted, raises a household’s expenses by approximately 40 percent. In a country where the average income ranges from minimum wage to less than $1 a day, this added expense isn’t seen as crucial.

However, there’s an incredibly simple solution that’s both greener and safer – the Solar Bottle Bulb.
