Green is the New Black. Go Solar.

Been wanting to do your part to reduce your carbon footprint, and maybe save the world as we know it? Yeah, me too. Probably thinking only rich people can afford to install solar panels on their roofs. Yeah, you’re probably right. BUT for the rest of us, there is THIS:

Daylight Lamp

The Bloom Daylight Table Lamp. The smaller side holds a solar panel that collects sunlight during the day. When it’s dark, flip it over to let the lampshade-shaped side illuminate your room! The sunlight powers the lamp’s LED bulbs, which burn anywhere from 2-40 hours, depending on how much sun it soaked up. The Daylight can be charged inside or outside (it is waterproof).

This seems to me to be perfect for a patio or deck. We got a long way to go on the energy issue, but it’s good to see consumer products becoming available that help us help ourselves.
