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. By now, our company has made it possible to engage 65 previously unemployed people from Johannesburgs’s townships Alexandra and Soweto. And thanks to you, this is a growing number.
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.
