With every Luci Light purchased, you are helping Luci deliver their clean, affordable lights to those who still live without electricity.
They created Luci, the inflatable solar light, to empower the three billion people around the world who still live without reliable access to electricity. In many places, as soon as the sun goes down, children can’t study, entrepreneurs have to stop working, women are less safe walking outside, health clinics have to close… the list goes on. Kerosene lamps are the most common solution in these areas – but they are dangerous, toxic and expensive.
Lightweight, easy to carry, and shining for hours on a single charge, Luci is a clean, safe and affordable way to bring light to the world.
Mpowerd wants to make the world a better place to live, and keeping it clean is a big part of that. That’s why they’ve made sure you have options for recycling your Luci light.
