Pepsi Philippines is a pioneer sponsor of My Shelter Foundation Light Project
Partners since 2011.
The project provides sustainable lighting solutions through the upgrading of plastic bottles.
The original \"Sky Light\" (
Plastic bottle full of bleach that breaks down the natural light of the sun and zooms in to the home)
Has been upgraded to provide light when needed mostat night.
This can be powered by the connection of the solar panel and a simple circuit for the LED light inserted into the bottle.
This simple technology can provide up to 10 hours of light at night and can last up to three years.
Over the past four years, the foundation has installed more than 190,000 lights in 95,000 households, affecting more than 475,000 people in the Philippines.
Thanks to the simplicity and adaptability of the technology, the project has been launched in 15 countries around the world and is currently spreading light.
