Here’s an example of a great product doing good in the world. Plus Minus Solar have created a Solar Pebble to reduce the use of dangerous kerosene lamps in the world’s poorest regions. It’s portable, can be hung or clipped onto bicycles, and it charges other small electronics, like mobile phones. In a year, it costs a tenth of what lighting a home by kerosene would, and its much more safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly. This is great design in action.
The Solar Pebble will be available in June, with pricing currently unknown. Best of all, for every purchase in the developed world, Solar Pebbles will send one to the undeveloped world.
