Green high-tech technology in a traditional mason jar.
The principle of this solar light is simple and ingenious: the Sonnenglas® is a small solar power station which stores energy during the day and releases light at night. A battery is recharged by solar cells in its lid and provides light for many hours. When the sun isn‘t shining energy can be recharged via a MicroUSB connector.
The Sonnenglas can be decorated according to personal taste: it is ideal as a garden lamp, for the romantically set table, for barbecue parties, camping, decoration, alfresco dining… perfect for all outdoor activities that would benefit from beautiful lighting to create an idyllic and relaxed atmosphere after sunset.
The idea: Many townships in South Africa do not have reliable electricity supply. Kerosene lamps and candles serve as lighting, these are a major fire hazard. The Sonnenglas® is an alternative, an adequate light source and a viable substitute for fossil fuels.
The Sonnenglas® is a genuine Fair-Trade Product from South Africa: from social and sustainable production. It offers secure jobs and career prospects for 70 previously unemployed men and women from Soweto and Johannesburg. The employees are guaranteed fair wages and social insurance and are entitled to a pension. The Sonnenglas fund founded in 2014 finances schools and training courses.
We think this is great and are happy to make a small contribution towards supporting this project with this offer.
