Why It's Important
Did you know?
Over 500 Million Glowsticks are thrown out
- every year-
Over 500 million Plastic Glowsticks are Thrown Out Every Year, contributing to plastic waste and leaching carcinogenic chemicals including dibutyl phthalate. Often These glowsticks don’t even make it to a garbage, and become unmanaged waste that ends up in rivers, streams, and the ocean.
We Care, which is why the Light Wand is designed to be compostable right where it lands, weather that’s in a compost, garbage, or festival grounds.
The Light Wand based on some incredibly powerful technology (woo!) and the entire product is designed to be sustainable and non-toxic. The Cap is resuable, and the entire Single-Use Wand is aquatic and terrestrial compostable, even better than most biodegradable products on the market today.
GOING Beyond PLASTIC FREE
We want to go so far beyond plastic free that youre not even thinking of plastic anymore, cause plastic is OVER! We, along with other innovative brands, are pushing the boundaries of what businesses can achieve. We are setting the new precedence of what sustainable business looks like, and we want to bring you with us!
How we do better:
- We use seaweed based materials which don't require commercial compost facilities to break down (all 'biodegradable plastics' require temperature of 40°C to fully break down, otherwise they just turn into more of the same microplastics that are decimating the bottom of our food chain.)
- Our packaging is 100% compostable too!
- All components in the Light Wand are non-toxic and 'unofficially edible' - even if this gets left on the ground, its like leaving throwing out an apple core. We recommend you use a compost, but don't feel too guilty if you don't.
