Solar Street Light Kit – Recycle shoes into party lights


It’s amazing the creative ways people think of the 2nd R (as in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). This spring, do-it-yourself-ers will love the new Solar Street Light Kit. No more tossing out those favorite, well-used sneakers or running shoes when you can turn them into party lights by adding solar cells and LEDs

Created by Scottish design firm Lost Values, the kit contains solar cells and LEDs and comes in two sizes – for kids or adults, with 3 or 6 lights. It also comes in white or “mood” changing colors and its weatherproof circuitry protects it from damp or harsh climates. Prices will range from �10 (US$16) to �25 (US$41). So dig into those closets for those worn treads. They’ll make a fun conversation piece next year at your summer barbeque!

Inspired by Shoefiti, this exhibition piece is now available as a DIY kit. Customize your tired trainers with these solar cells and LED’s. A great way to recycle old shoes and to brighten up your garden or street. Available in 2 sizes, for 3 or 6 lights. In plane white or Mood color changing.
