Media Release: Glowsticks – the ultimate survival tool

GLOW sticks are most commonly associated with parties and discos, but what many may not know is that glowsticks are incredibly versatile and have many different uses and applications. Their robustness and ability to provide light without the need for batteries or an external power source allows them to be advantageous in a number of different scenarios.

Although glowsticks are believed to be a simple toy, this could not be further from the truth. When the chemicals within the glow stick react, this creates the phenomenon also known as chemiluminescence which takes place when two different chemicals react and create light as a by product..

Originally created by the military, the plan was to create a light source that would be perfect for emergency scenarios. So if you happen to find yourself in a situation where gas may be present and any spark or fire would cause an explosion, you will wish you had a glow stick at hand. Ever since the creation of the glowstick, it has became not only the number one party essential, but also the survivalists dream tool.

Glowsticks are light, can function through high winds and are 100 per cent waterproof. When you combine this with their glow time that is anywhere between six to twelve hours, depending on the glowstick, it’s easy to understand why they are not to be underestimated.

Of course, glowsticks are not just suitable for natural disasters. If you experience a flat tyre or your car breaks down on the motorway, it’s vital to let the traffic know of your presence. A simple glowstick can provide much greater exposure and reliability than a torch.

And because Glowsticks give off a brilliantly bright and vibrant glow, this allows hikers and any situation where having a light on your clothes may be helpful in any event of falling or becoming trapped. This is not limited to cyclists and joggers.
