If you're seeking a more sustainable solution to power your next festival, live music event, outdoor film screening, sporting extravaganza, or neighborhood block party, look no further than solar power. Solar technology has emerged as a highly viable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional generators. By harnessing the energy of the sun, solar-powered batteries provide a safer, more sustainable, and remarkably reliable source of power - especially if you’re off-grid. Regardless of the scale of your gathering, whether it's an intimate affair or an epic multi-day exhibition, solar power has got you covered. Prepare to be inspired as we explore some exciting solar options that not only reduce your carbon footprint but also ensure your celebration remains powered by the sun throughout the entire season. *Please note that this is not a sponsored post, it is a collection of resources we have found to be helpful to ourselves and our partners.*
The solar-operated Luke Lights and Chandler Chargers we produce are sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel based lamps and energy sources, as well as single use batteries. However, they still have a limited useful life (2-5 years). At Unite to Light we believe in supporting circular product life cycles, and that means responsible disposal of our products and other e-waste at the end of their lives. While we do operate on a global scale and work internationally with on the ground partners to properly recycle our products, this article is intended for our U.S. consumers - we hope it helps!
