A Bright Idea!

solar lantern

Thanks to the Alcoa Foundation we are going solar! We are putting the power of the sun to work with solar lanterns, flashlights, and even phone chargers! We currently use the lanterns and flashlights in our night programs, and we have plans to make the solar phone and tablet chargers available to the public soon! So be sure to keep your eye out for these great products from Goal Zero.
