Making use of factory-discarded Nepali wood otherwise earmarked as wastage, the good people at KAPEG have created an attractive, sustainable lamp that ticks a lot of boxes. Utilising the skills of local Nepalese workers trained by KAPEG itself, the battery-powered LED lamps are an energy-efficient, rechargeable way of creating light
independent of an unreliable electricity supply. Designed for use during load-shedding and with a run time of 20 hours, the lamps can easily be recharged when electricity is available. Putting cheap, imported plastic lamps firmly in the shade, this clever-thinking all-rounder has us beaming.
