Consol Solar Jars help with homework
Ardagh Glass Packaging - Africa (formerly Consol Glass) donated 10,000 Consol Solar Jars to learners in Thembisa on 5 May.
The donation is a continuation of Project Khanya, a CSI project launched by Consol in 2015 to bring free, rechargeable light to children who are battling with resources to do their homework at night.
“The company recognises the challenges that our young people face but learning should not be one of them,” says Thami Mkhuzangwe, Senior Executive: Human Resources and Corporate Affairs, Ardagh Glass Packaging - Africa. “We are proud to play a role in assisting eager young minds to grow and develop.”
The versatile Consol Solar Jars are an eco-friendly lighting solution, handmade in South Africa.
The jar’s longer lasting battery allows light to shine for up to 12 hours on a single charge.
It also has a day/night switch which keeps the LED light off under adequate lighting conditions to conserve power until it’s needed, a USB charging feature and a useful ‘find me’ loadshedding function which activates for 60 seconds when electricity is suddenly turned off.
Project Khanya also aims to raise awareness about the importance of conserving energy and thus protecting the environment.
