Plastic Water Bottles Used to Make Solar Lights
Transforming a plastic water bottle that’d otherwise be landfill-bound (or possibly recycled) into a source of much-needed indoor lighting is one phenomenal example of turning a perceived problem into a solution. Today we know we need to drastically reduce the amount “waste” we produce, but what about all the “waste” that we’ve already generated?
This video, by the Liter of Light project, shows that a plastic bottle isn’t just a plastic bottle – it’s a valuable resource to those living without the luxury of indoor electric lighting. How can we re-imagine and re-invent other items that we have come to recognize as single-use, disposable products? Human ingenuity has the potential to lead us to surprising and innovative solutions, if we let it do so!
