So, if you guys can’t tell, I’m definitely on a really green kick lately! I mean, I try to be green as much as I can, but lately, I’ve been looking for more ways to be green, and I found one! Buygreen.com is a great site full of awesome products to make your everyday living (and then some!) as green as possible!
Their site has a large variety of products available. From baby bottles, to solar powered lights, to healthy cleaning agents, to composting containers, to furniture, clothing and more, BuyGreen has it all. If you can think of it, BuyGreen has a green alternative!
I reviewed the solar hybrid flashlight from BuyGreen, and I do have to say, I was impressed!
Now, my husband is really big into solar energy. He has an obsession with it, and eventually, one day, he would LOVE for us to be able to power our home with completely solar energy and even sell it back to the electric companies. He’s just fascinated with solar power, so this flashlight was right up his alley.
It comes fully charged, and the full charge will give you up to ten hours of battery life. It doesn’t have to be stored in the light, it can be thrown in a glove box, a tool box, a cupboard, a drawer, etc and still work! It holds a charge for three years.
One of the best parts about it is, unlike many green and eco-friendly flashlights, you don’t have to crank it, or shake it to keep the power going! It works just like a normal flashlight, except that it’s powered by the sun!
And the light is REALLY bright, it worked better than the giant, heavy, hard-to-lug-around flashlight my husband has, and that one goes through D-batteries like you wouldn’t believe! If you watch the video, you’ll be able to see how bright it got…
Pretty bright if you ask me! I thought it was awesome, because we live in Alaska. It’s dark a good majority of the year, so we always need flashlights around, just in case the power goes out (which for some reason it does, pretty often). I’m really excited to switch over to using a solar flashlight over the big heavy metal clunker one that drain’s D’s quicker than you can blink!
And did I mention it’s waterproof?! I didn’t try that out, but maybe I will soon and post a video of it! I think that’s really neat! Drop your keys in a murky puddle in the middle of the night? Never fear!
