Liter of light - Recycling Plastic bottles to make light :)

Rather than seen as trash, plastic bottles are now being viewed as a cheap and sustainable way to light homes.
Shanty town homes in Manila are often built so close to each other that they have no windows or natural light. With electricity unaffordable or unavailable for many slum-inhabitants, many families often have to work, do chores, and eat in near darkness.
Now a simple innovation called the "Solar Bottle Bulb" is popping out of roofs and illuminating the lives of many..
Check out the video of how it changed the lights in Philippines

If you are interested to do it yourself, check the video below

It is a very cool initiative. Please spread the word :)
