Luminous Trails is all about illumination and spreading light. What greater source of light is there than our Sun? It always shines and we are all connected as one under the sun. Therefore whenever anyone books a retreat or unique trip with us, we'll donate a solar powered lantern (worth £12) to a community in an area of the world that has no electricity and is off the grid. To put it in perspective, 1 out of 3 people don't have access to reliable electricity, so that's around 2.6 billion people. 600 million people in Africa live without electricity. So you can know that any trip you take with us will literally be brightening up lives and literally leaving behind luminous trails!
In India, amongst other places, many people still use kerosene lamps, which are toxic, provide minimal light and if spilt can cause great damage. One great way of addressing this is to use the natural, sustainable and free energy of the sun to light up lives. It's a simple solution to a big problem which is kind to the environment and can transform lives. Enough solar energy reaches earth from the sun every hour to fill all the world's energy needs for a full year. To help make this happen, we have partnered up with three award winning companies:
MPowered whose LUCI lanterns provide very lightweight, low cost, inflatable, waterproof, completely sustainable, bright solar lanterns.
D.Light who provide various solar powered products and have already empowered millions of people in energy poverty.
Little Sun. Spreading light through delightful yellow sunflower lights to people without electricity.
