eBay and Little Sun partner to spotlight sustainable solar energy


eBay and Little Sun have teamed up to offer shoppers sustainable solar solutions “globally.” Unfortunately, their listing only specifies shipping to the US.

The focus on climate change today is more important than ever, eBay and Little Sun are empowering everyone to make thoughtful buying choices – with the added benefit of helping communities where basic services are unreliable if available at all.

The social business, Little Sun have announced yesterday the launch of their storefront on eBay, Little Sun Energy. The shop offers shoppers a limited-edition “Earth Day Duo” bundle until on the 1st of May.

The solar bundle, which is designed by artist Olafur Eliasson includes ‘Little Sun Original’ and ‘Little Sun Diamond’ solar-powered lamps for $42 (£32). Some 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Little Sun Foundation.

Consumers who purchase Earth Day Duo would also make the same product available to someone without access to electricity at a locally affordable price, where they would be provided with a clean alternative to toxic and expensive fuel-based lighting like kerosene lamps or candles.

More than 1 billion people worldwide live without access to electricity. The partnership aims to raise global awareness for these issues while impacting locally at
