We are excited to partner with an amazing company, BioLite! BioLite makes awesome stoves, lights, and solar panels that also provide power – and they were kind enough to ship us gear all the way to Paraguay.

Every BioLite purchase brings safe, affordable energy access to off-grid households across India and Africa. Now that’s some global giving we can get behind!

The giving doesn’t stop there – BioLite is letting us gift a PowerLight Mini to one of our followers. We’re hosting a contest this week on Instagram, see the official rules below and enter here.

Our PowerLight Minis provided light (perfect for our campsites at night) and power (kept our phones charged for tunes and photos) during our 5-day Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu.
