The LuminAID solar light is a sustainable and affordable product created to fulfill a basic need for Haitians after the 2010 earthquake.
Created by Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta, who met while graduate students at Columbia University, the renewable light source aims to ensure safety and to improve the quality of life for those living in the aftermath of such a disaster.
LuminAID's solar light is inflatable, waterproof, can float, and can power light for up to 3 years, at which point the solar batteries can be replaced. LuminAID's design also boasts no movable parts, which is ideal for post-disaster conditions, while it is also notable that 50 LuminAID lamps can be shipped in the place of 8 small conventional flashlights in terms of volume.
