We love shedding light on affordable, eco-friendly decor that the entire family may enjoy… but IKEA’s SUNNAN LED Work Lamp [2] takes our enthusiasm a step further with its altruistic nature. For every SUNNAN lamp [3] sold in IKEA stores worldwide, another SUNNAN will be donated to UNICEF [4] to give to children living in remote areas and refugee camps who lack electricity. Requiring no electrical connections, the solar powered lamp [3] offers four hours of continuous light after its solar panel is charged by the sunlight for 8 hours. The first lamp donations will be sent to Pakistan, where thousands remain homeless after the major earthquake in October 2008.
