We are excited to announce that we are now distributing Luci Lanterns, a range of inflatable solar powered lights suitable for everything from outdoor adventures to lighting your backyard.
Luci Outdoor 2.0 is perfect for camping, fishing, boating and tramping. Lightweight, waterproof and durable, it collapses down to just 2.5cm, making it perfect to clip on a pack during the day to charge in the sun before expanding to provide off-the-grid light at night.
The appeal of Luci Lanterns isn’t just limited to trampers, campers, boaties and kayakers though. Because they are solar powered and therefore extremely safe, not to mention robust, Luci Lanterns make ideal outdoor lights for around home. And they are perfect for emergency kits too.
But the truly impressive side of Luci Lanterns only comes if you dig a little deeper. What sets Luci Lanterns apart from other brands is their commitment to helping people in developing countries. For many people around the world, a lack of affordable, convenient lighting is a daily challenge, not just something they face occasionally.
This commitment can be seen in the company's mission statement on their website: “With Luci, we were aiming for something much bigger than convenience. We want to empower the lives of the 1.5 billion people living without electricity in developing countries. So we made a light that’s clean and safe – pretty much the opposite of the toxic and expensive kerosene lamps so many depend on – because life doesn’t stop after the sun goes down.”
Their sustainable business model means that every purchase of a Luci Lantern in the developed world makes it more affordable for people in the developing world. Also, their "Give Luci Program" partners with non-profit charities to deliver light where it is most needed.
