Light…one Litre at a time.
Take a used Soda bottle, add Water, Bleach and My Shelter Foundation’s Illac Diaz, and you get 50w of daytime light for 5 years.
As reported by Brynn Opsahl, on the Global Envision website- using an MIT student design, Mr. Diaz has brought light to some 300,000 Phillipinos who had no, or illegal and unsafe access to electricity- without using electricity or any other non-sustainable energy
The bottle is inserted and secured through a hole in the ceiling, and allows sunlight to refract, bringing 360 degrees of light into the room below.
