It’s sunshine in a jar. This 100% recyclable mason jar holds four solar-powered LEDs; inside the lid are solar cells. Simply place it in direct sunlight to charge the batteries, then flip the magnetic switch for hours of bright, soft light.

Consol Solar Jar - Solar Powered LED Light


Sustainable Glow

The SONNENGLAS® solar-powered LED light was created by Stefan Neubig as a safe, sustainable alternative to kerosene lamps that are often the only source of light for for people with no access to electricity. The light casts a soft glow that is just the right brightness to read by or lighten up spots, like a patio. Add decorative pebbles, flowers, or your favorite touches to make it more personal.

Stefan partnered with engineer Harald Schultz to produce the lights in Johannesburg, South Africa. They use 100% recyclable glass and solar cells that can charge the four LED lights with just a few hours of exposure to the sun.

SONNENGLAS® is dedicated to exploring ways to make renewable energy a stronger part of our everyday lives, as well as giving back to the folks who make the light. Their workforce, predominantly undereducated and unemployed, now receive a living wage and training, so they are better able to pursue a brighter future.
