With the right light, plants grow better. But too much light can have a negative impact on the health and daily rhythms of both people and animals. To say nothing of the bulb waste.
Ever since observing bioluminescent marine bacteria, a female founder from France has been working to produce more environmentally-friendly city lamps. Talk about a bright idea…
Her startup’s lamps contain seawater, bacteria and yeast as nutrients. A pump supplies the necessary oxygen for the chemical reaction and the resulting bluish lighting.
The bacteria can be cultivated in laboratories and are biodegradable (should excess heat cause them to die).
