There is much to celebrate about these lovely, sustainable solar lanterns. From decorating a festive outdoor table to creating a keepsake gift for someone special, they will be a memorable part of any party.
Sonnenglas lanterns are beautiful in their simplicity. A classic mason jar with a solar rechargeable LED light hidden under the lid, casting a warm, indirect, magical light. And for indoor, year-round use, they offer a micro-USB charging option.
These lights can be transformed into one-of-a-kind keepsake capsules, celebrating special events like weddings, beach vacations, class reunions, or simply a gift for someone special in your life.
Not only do they cast a light powered by the sun, but these lanterns are produced in sustainable ways. Created and handmade in South Africa, they brighten lives around the world, and especially in African communities where there is no access to electricity. As they say on their web site, “This is the soul that drives Sonnenglas® to what it is: a light that shines in many different ways.”
16% of the world’s population — an estimated 1.2 billion people — are still living without electricity. Lack of access to electricity, or “energy poverty”, is the ultimate economic hindrance as it prevents people from participating in the modern economy.
