Cleardocs has partnered with Carbon Community Foundation, a Melbourne-based non-profit organisation. The Foundation's mission is to supply affordable and ultra-efficient solar lighting technologies to poor communities in developing countries. In this way, people replace kerosene with clean energy.
Carbon Community is using the $2.00 paid by Cleardocs customers to supply communities in Tanzania, Africa with solar lights — which cost about $23 each.
By replacing kerosene with clean energy, the environment benefits through reduced carbon emissions and the local people's lives are transformed through:
- more disposable income — from reduced or zero purchase of expensive kerosene;
- reduced danger from burns and indoor pollution; and
- vastly improved lighting — enabling reading and education at night.
At Cleardocs, we care about clear communication — which helps people to better understand the world. So it's satisfying that our customers and our carbon-reduction partner have so far provided about 100 families with lighting to help them study — while reducing their carbon footprint.
