The bottles absorb sunlight and emit about 55-watts of light into a dark interior, the Discovery News reported.

This is a boon for people in Manilla, the Philippines, where About 3 million homes are in the dark and have to rely on kerosene lamps for light.

These bottles provide a cost-effective and environmentally safe way to provide light to these families during the daylight hours.
