A Litre Of Light

As I work in the lighting industry I tend to keep a close eye on new technologies, more efficient ways of using light and working to meet increasingly ‘green’ needs.  So when such a novel lighting solution found it’s way into my inbox it really caught my eye.

A bottle of water with a few drops of bleach is all it takes to provide a lighting solution to the light-deprived slums of the Philippines.  The mere simplicity of it is staggering.  Nature at it’s finest being exploited for those that need it, spreading sunlight throughout places that rarely see it.

It is almost like taking a step backwards in terms of pushing new technology, but really this is the kind of thinking and innovation that we should be embracing.

Designed to emit clear light for around five years, it is incredibly sustainable.  Just watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.

The simplest of solutions, the most cost effective of products, and all developed to aid some of the world’s poorest people.  Light can have an incredible effect on state of mind, motivation, circadian rhythms and general health as a whole.  This simple product will really benefit the entire community, and bringing it to people who have little or no money, or even electricity, is a fantastic solution.

Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.
