Bright Books is a new social enterprise aiming to alleviate energy poverty through the sales of high-quality goods. For every pair of journals purchased, we donate one solar light to a child in need. Our mission is to provide beautiful, sustainably made goods for our customers and to raise awareness about energy access.
Our Classic Lined journals are hard-cover with 128 lined pages available in 3 colors. They feature lay-flat pages, super thick paper so you don't have to worry about bleed through, and a tiny animation when you flip through the pages. Stretchy, satin elastic closure also serves as a bookmark. Our new 48-page Mini journals are passport-sized, perfect for pockets and purses. Bright Books are printed on FSC certified paper and manufactured in an ICTI Cares facility.
Why solar lights? Because nearly 1.2 billion people in the developing world currently lack access to basic electricity. Without electricity, people use kerosene lamps to light homes that are expensive and emit toxic fumes. By replacing the kerosene lamps with a portable, solar light, children can safely read and study at night without risking fires, or health/environmental consequences. We partner with NGOs in rural schools and refugee camps to get lights to those most in need. Read our website to learn more about our partners and the lights we donate.
