Read by the Light of the Sun—at Night
This is a neat little desk lamp that sells for $20 at Ikea. Put it by the window during the day, the sun will charge it up, then read at night.
Even better, each time you buy one, Ikea will contribute a hardier version to UNICEF for a needy child in a poor country. So far this year Ikea contributed more than half a million lamps; next year it hopes to reach one million.
