Since its development in the townships of Johannesburg, it has been directly connected to the lives of the people producing it. These people, that achieve to make the best out of what they have - thanks to their inventiveness and unshakable zest of life. This is the soul that drives SONNENGLAS® to what it is: a light that shines in many different ways.
It is therefore self-evident for us to produce our solar lanterns in a socially sustainable way that follows strict fair trade standards. In our factory in South Africa is creating stable jobs and perspectives for previously unemployed young people living in disadvantaged areas in Johannesburg.
To a large extent, SONNENGLAS® is produced by hand. This guarantees the high quality and particularly long durability. A true South African success story that does not only bring more light to the Townships but also makes the rest of the world a brighter place - light by light.
