Coke Bottle Lighting!

Who would have thought?
Something as simple as a 2 liter Coke bottle...some water...and some chlorine.

What do you get?
No, not a carbonation fountain.
No, not a new way to play Spin-the-Bottle.

What you get is a creative, low cost way to put lighting in third world homes that are otherwise dealing with darkness almost all day!

It's green, it's safe, it's ecologically friendly, it brings work to small towns.

In all, it's really worth checking out!

See here.

In fact, the e-mail I received about it said:
This is really interesting and very exciting for these poor people! The simplicity of this concept is fantastic!Used plastic bottles filled with water + a tablespoon of bleach,
Will light up people's lives.

Thanks, Dad.

Sounds great. Just want to make one point though, as I live in Africa. We have sunlight throughout the day so your statement should be something like bringing welcome light at night.

Hi Vivian!
I appreciate you stopping by...

I am thinking about what yoh have said here, but I'm not sure it's accurate.
The bottles serve as 'skylights' to a house that would otherwise have no windows/light at all. At night, the bottles do not provide 'lighting' so to speak...
