MyShelter Foundation’s “Liter of Light” project won the People’s Choice Award at the annual Sustainia Awards held in Copenhagen, Denmark on November 7, 2013. The Sustainia Awards are given by a panel headed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Twenty months after the project started, Liter of Light has grown from one bottle lamp in the Philippines to 350,000 lights in ten countries around the world.
Sustainia conducted an online poll for its People’s Choice Award. Voting ended on October 31 and Liter of Light was in first place.
