Available in four natural flavors — orange, cherry, blueberry, and apple — this colorful task lamp is made from a biodegradable plastic derived from vegetable glycerin and agar. As the designer explains, “when the lamp is no longer useful or desired, the lighting strip is removed and the lamp may be eaten or thrown into the garden as compost.” All you have to do to enjoy the gummy goodness is soak it in purified water for about an hour. It will taste like a big, wet gummy bear.
