A Litre of Light

Isang Litrong Liwanag┬átranslates into “A Litre of Light”. In 2009, 3 million homes were without power in the Philippines. Thanks to the students at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), they have created a way to give light to homes.

The Solar Bottle Bulb uses simple and replaceable objects to create light in dark homes. Using a pop bottle, clean water, salt, and bleach, the underprivileged homes are given an eco-friendly solar light bulb.
