But, how? Very simple. They only have to cut a piece of the roof and put the bottle on it. The sunlight will refracted in the bottle illuminates the whole house. Of course it only works during the day, but it's a good and sustainable improvement.

This idea has brought not just light to poor areas, but had also created new job functions. Some families work producing them on demand. The cost of each is about one dollar and the requests have been growing more and more. For this reason, they believe the bottle lights will be increased not just in poor areas, but also in developed countries.
