Little Sun

About the brand

Vision
Little Sun promotes development, by which they strive to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. They believe in stimulating poverty eradication, education and gender equality, as well as health and environmental sustainability. Their Little Sun solar-powered lamp is the sustainable solution for this. How does this product help in achieving all these goals?

Impact
Approximately 1.1 billion people currently live in ‘off-grid’ areas, therefore lacking electricity. Little Sun believes light is a fundamental resource which should be available to every person, providing structure to their life. Light stimulates business to remain open later, making them able to increase their income. Children need light to study in the evening, to learn more and develop themselves in the best possible way. Even gender equality can be supported by Little Sun. As women and children spend more hours at home, they suffer from the negative effects and risks coming from kerosene lanterns and candles. A safe alternative is provided by Little Sun, which emits no smoke and is non-toxic. Therefore, Little Sun also is a better alternative when it comes to health. Eliminating the pollution of homes by using kerosene, Little Sun is an environmentally sustainable solution.
