Share More than 50 volunteers from Pepsi Philippines swooped down recently on a resettlement village in Tacloban City on a mission to light up homes and streets in the area inhabited by Typhoon Yolanda survivors. By nightfall, 76 solar bottle house lights and 23 solar street lights were installed, benefitting 76 households in the New Kawayan resettlement site which began to enjoy the basic benefits of solar power.
The Isang Litrong Liwanag A Liter of Light project, based on research by students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MITinvolved installing solar bottle lights to provide a unique daytime lighting solution for urban poor communities living in homes without natural light sources.
Pepsi sponsorship involved the installation of used plastic Pepsi bottles on roofs to refract sunlight into 55W of light. This cuts down electric bills and helps reduce carbon emission.
The brand has installed over 20, lights through the combination of volunteer action, online donation and direct sponsorship.

A model community, wherein every home is lit by at least 2 bottle bulbs, was established to help take the model across the global Pepsi system. See more on the Liter of Light project at aliteroflight.
