ST. GEORGE, Ut. - Hybrid Light, LC has announced the launch of its product the Hybrid Solar Lite. This unique light, which utilizes both the power of the sun and a back-up battery, offers 40 lumens oflight and can be used in any number of circumstances, ranging from general home use to emergency situations.

With all of the talk out there these days about "greening" your home, your job, your life, one might wonder how do I take that first step toward a more sustainable lifestyle -- and will it really make a difference? What if I told you that according to the EPA, over 3 billion batteries are dumped in the landfills each year? And, what if I told you that an average of 1.7 billion of those batteries come from flashlights alone? I would venture to say that cutting back on the consumption of 1.7 billion flashlight batteries would constitute a rather big difference to be made.

Starting as a grass-roots effort on their website,, this innovation in environmentally-friendly lighting makes a great gift for the holiday season that is upon us and is now available at Costco stores across the nation.

In addition to being an environmentally friendly product, the light is extremely convenient as well, as it requires no maintenance, no batteries, and is waterproof up to eighty feet. The light is rechargeable through any lightsource via its embedded solar panel, and holds its charge over 3 years allowing it to be stored anywhere. Because it does not require batteries, it helps to save money and the environment. The Hybrid Solar Lite comes with a lifetime guarantee.

In the past several weeks the light has been featured in several media outlets, including television, newspapers, and blogs, as well as trade shows involving Hardball's Chris Matthews, 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley, Actor Tom Arnold and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, amongst others.
