This Blueprint is developed in collaboration with its Originator with the purpose to enable as many people as possible to take action for light access.
About the project
Liter of Light is a global open-source project. There are several versions of this project because it has been adapted to many different contexts and available resources. The Brazil solution is a water filled PET bottle that gets inserted into a roof to refract sunlight. The MIT solution is a solar model that upcycles electronic equipment. Since 2013 it has been implemented and adapted in more than 35 countries.

More about the project
Light is not evenly distributed around the world. In many parts of the world there isn’t enough light after dark to get home safely, to play outside, or to learn for school. Liter of light is a collection of lighting projects that involve reusing PET bottles to illuminate homes and streets. There are various adaptations that can incorporate electricity, LED’s, batteries, solar panels, and light posts depending on your context.
