SONNENGLAS® ALSO MEANS:
WE LEAVE OUR WORLD IN BETTER SHAPE THAN WE FOUND IT.
Since its development in the neighbourhoods of Johannesburg, this process has been directly linked to the lives of the people who produce it. These people have achieved
the best of what they have – thanks to ingenuity and an unwavering zest for life. It is this soul that guides SONNENGLAS® to what it is: light that shines in many different ways.
Therefore, it is a matter of course for us to manufacture our solar lamps in a socially sustainable way, following strict fair trade standards. At our factory in South Africa, we create stable jobs and prospects for previously unemployed young people living in disadvantaged areas of Johannesburg.
SONNENGLAS® is largely produced by hand. This ensures high quality and particularly long durability. A true South African success story that will not only bring more light to the townships, but also make the rest of the world a brighter place – light after light.
