Liter of Light is a project that uses recycled plastic and renewable electricity sources to give access to affordable light.
About the project
Liter of Light is an open-source project originated in the Philippines, from an initial solution tried in Brazil that would stuck a plastic bottle with water and bleach in the roof of vulnerable houses to let the sunlight in. Since then, the project evolved its formula in more than 10 different solutions, implemented in 35+ countries.
Impact and Main Outcomes
Access to electricity is one of the main barriers today, for communities around the world. It connects with safety, with access to information, with the opportunity to have light to study or connect with family and communities. Liter of Light has developed systemic programs around this challenge, recycling materials and applying renewable energy to ensure that every community of household can access clean energy.
