Liter Of Light



Enjoy Light without Electricity. The project is useful and the website design is unique and very fun!

The Technology

What do you get with sunshine and an old plastic bottle filled with water and chlorine? Thanks to Alfred Moser and a group of MIT students, you get a 55-watt solar bulb that refracts sunlight! It's powerful enough to light up a home but more than that it’s environmentally friendly, inexpensive, and easy to make.



The Movement

The Liter of Light began in the Philippines with one bottle light. Eventually, the movement grew to brighten up 28,000 homes and the lives of 70,000 people in Metro Manila alone. Now Liter of Light is present in India, Indonesia, and even as far away as Switzerland.



The Future

MyShelter Foundation is relying on volunteers like you to spread the Liter of Light movement where it's needed. Using the Philippines as our home base, we want one million bottle lights installed around the world by 2015.
