In a bid to light up Gurugrams darkest streets, Pepsi extended its Liter of Light programme to the area, a company statement said here on Friday.
The project promises to bring about a huge change by taking used Pepsi bottles and turning them into solar powered light bulbs.
The lighting solution has been implemented in eight locations across the Gurugram-Sohna Road, Jharsa Road in Fazilpur village, Sector 15, Khansa Road, Bio Diversity Park, Sector 31 and Sector 39.
The initiative, also supported by the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram, will lead to a reduction in the total amount of energy consumption in these areas as the lights being used are solar powered light bulbs, the statement said.
Created with used PET bottles, these lights are made of plastic filled with bleach and water and fixed to poles refracting sunlight during the daytime.
“Pepsi is committed to improving the lives of the communities within which we operate. This Diwali, we attempted to make the streets of Gurugram safer and helped add more hours to a day. Liter of Light is the truest celebration of Pepsi’s iconic bottles and we look forward to scaling up the programme in the coming years to add more brightness to lives across the nation,” said Raj Rishi Singh, Director, Marketing, Pepsi, PepsiCo India.
