INtroducing thE Nyoka Light Wand
Forget about glow sticks - say hello to the Nyoka Light Wand! The Nyoka Light Wand is non-toxic, 100% biodegradable, and "unofficially edible". The Light Wand is formed using seaweed and algae-based materials, which naturally degrade in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. The best part - every Light Wand is chock full of beneficial mushroom spores, so when they are finished glowing they help strengthen the mycelial web of life.

Spreads GOodness Through the Soil!
Help heal the mycelial web of life!
How It Works
STEP 1. Fill Light Wand with water and seal it with reusable cap.
STEP 2. Puncture top and shake - check out that reaction!
STEP 3. (Optional but highly recommended) Turn up the music, turn off the lights, and wave that Light Wand around!
STEP 4. Once glow has diminished, remove tube and place in compost.
STEP 5. Repeat as often as desired.
DId you know?
OVER 100 MILLION PLASTIC GLOW STICKS ARE THROWN OUT EVERY YEAR.
Glow sticks contribute to plastic and toxic waste globally, and leach carcinogenic chemicals including dibutyl phthalate. Often glow sticks are not disposed of properly, becoming unmanaged waste that ends up in rivers, streams, and the ocean.
We care, WHICH IS WHY THE LIGHT WAND IS DESIGNED TO Degrade RIGHT WHERE IT LANDS, WheTHER THAT'S IN A COMPOST, GARBAGE, OR FESTIVAL GROUNDS.
Beyond Plastic- Free
Plastic is over! Nyoka, along with other innovative brands, are pushing the boundaries of what ecologically-minded businesses can achieve. Every innovation is created by passionate people who are putting their lives towards creating a better future. We are setting the new precedence of what sustainable business can do, and we want to bring you with us!
We Do It Better
- The Nyoka Light Wand uses seaweed and algae based materials, which naturally degrade in the ocean and on land. Most 'biodegradable plastics' on the market actually require temperatures of <40°C to degrade, otherwise they simply break into tiny microplastics that are equally as harmful as regular plastic waste.
- All components of the light wand are non-toxic and 'unofficially edible'. We are working on a Light Wand which contains mushroom spores - creating the first glowing seed-bomb you can party with!
- We are beginning to work with key conservation groups to help preserve the rare and beautiful bioluminescent bays, lagoons, caves, and termite mounds (oh ya!) that exist in hidden pockets of the world. These ecosystems are uniquely at risk in the face of climate change, encroaching development, and light pollution. We currently help manage www.biobayinfo.com alongside the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust. Check it out for more info!
- Ps. Our packaging is compostable too!
