Weekend Well-Being: Make a Nalgene Bottle Lantern

The news about the Nalgene bottle and other shatter proof polycarbonate plastics being dangerous for human health hit me a little hard. I've had my Nalgene bottle for years and taken it on many hikes, road trips, and picnics. Lucky for me, I found a way to reincorporate my Nalgene back into my outdoor life.

The company Sol Light has come to the rescue, saving my old water bottle from spending an eternity in a landfill by turning it into a lantern. The LightCap 200 - Solar Powered Light ($20) fits onto any standard water bottle with a two inch wide mouth and turns the bottle into a light source. To make this an even greener experience, the LED light is powered by solar power, so no batteries are required. You can get a light cap directly from here.

Also, if you want to freak out about that, you should know that they coat *all* plastic water bottles (you know, aquafina, dasani, etc.) with Bisphenol A. It's not just Nalgene . . .

Don't be ridiculous. There's no evidence that Bisphenol A is hazardous to your health. It's very similar to estrogen . . . 'Studies' are crap. you can link anything to anything if you do the right 'study' . . .

Funny. I used to do this with the blue glo-sticks if there were enough bottles around camp.
