Light up your plastic bottle!

Ever thought of switching electric light bulbs to used plastic bottles and saving on electricity bills? Maybe you should! 🙂

It is amazing how resourceful and creative people can be under conditions of scarcity… We are quick to forget that all of the comforts and technologies of today are not a result of lazy, comfortable life someone led – we fail to appreciate how dire circumstances and pressing needs of the past have shaped the society of today through all the new amazing things we get to experience every day.

These two videos show an example of the thinking and the spirit that we so pressingly need in today’s world. Instead of waiting for top-down salvation of any sorts (governmental or, worse yet, divine), we need to take the initiative into our own hands and employ the grassroots approach to the living, to the society and to the initiative.

Watch how “Isang Litrong Liwanag” campaign headed by philanthropist Illiac Diaz turns plastic soda bottles into nifty light bulbs in small homes, which absorbs sunlight and spreads it out inside a house.


About in shade

A cocktail of personality traits hard to digest for some but ultimately soothing for those who can. I observe, enjoy, travel, interact, photograph, dance, contemplate, write and love my way through this life's countless occurrences. This blog is a way to share with the world and its people some of the treasures they give me every day.
