There is a principle in nature, where every creatures waste is someone else's food. We are creating so much waste that is not degradable, that destroys the balance of ecosystems and that will without doubt create such conditions on the planet that wouldn't sustain civilization.
We only have one planet, there is no planet B! Our current economic system is based on infinite growth, while it's tapping into finite and dangerous resources. This is a recipe for social, economic and ecological disaster.
Making changes in our way of living is has incredible impact not only on the health of the planet but also on culture and collective consciousness. We can finally share ingenious ideas with people from all around the world, and we invite to join us and share your experience with the rest of the world! Let's make the world a better place for us and our children.

Panansonic has revealed its new solar lantern directed at regions that have little or no access to electricity. The BG-BL03 Solar LED Lantern features a 3.5 watt solar panel and LED lantern that offers 360 degree illumination and also features a USB charging dock for cell phones.

The lantern can be charged in about six hours and then it offers six hours of use at the maximum brightness setting and up to 90 hours at the lowest setting. These lanterns give people a much better alternative than the kerosene lamps that are often used, which emit toxic fumes and provide poor light.

The USB dock can charge a cell phone in two hours and a fully charged battery can charge a cell phone once or twice.

Panasonic will launch the product in Kenya, Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Malaysia, followed by other countries. This initiative is part of its "100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project," where the company has committed to donating a total of 100,000 solar electric lights to people in regions of the world without electricity by 2018.
