Millions of people live in informal settlements worldwide, most of them have adequate lighting. The Liter of Light aims to provide indoor lighting from sunlight at night through the use of Plastic bottles. It is a zero carbon emitting alternative of electricity that uses cheap, durable and readily available materials that produce high quality natural lighting allowing the urban poor to have access to an affordable, environmental friendly alternative to electric light that can be used during the night.
