Free Lightbulbs - Save Electricity in the Philippines
The bulbs are made out of a spring-water bottle, purified water and some bleach to keep it clear; they give around 50 watts of Philippine solar power light...
The planning is to install the bulbs in one million homes in 2012.
In most low-cost homes in the Philippines the people who live there don't have the money to switch-on the electric lights in the daytime; electricity cost here is extremely high.
So just cut a small hole in your corrugated steel roof, place half of the bottle sticking outside, seal it with a sealant and there you go!
This is healthier because normally they use candles that causes smoke and is also a fire hazard.
(No this doesn't work in the night nor at the ground floor of a two-storey house;)
P.S: please share this Good News to your friends...
