Thank you for dropping by!

My name is Paige. I am a microbiology/environmental studies student,  and the founder of Nyoka Design, a startup that is founded on my creation; a compostable glow stick that is designed to help heal climate change. How?! Science! We call this innovation the Nyoka Light Wand. 

Premise: toxic plastic glow sticks are an unnecessary pollutant. A compostable, non-toxic version powered with bioluminescence AND embedded with Earth-healing ingredients can serve a dual purpose: 1. reduce pollutants and 2. heal the planet

Fundamental Goals:
1.  Eliminate toxic plastic glow sticks.
Over 150 million plastic glow sticks are made every year. Let's stop that. Plastic waste is unnecessary, especially when Earth-friendly alternatives are available. 
2. Sequester carbon and revitalize soil health, helping to slow down climate change.
Every Light Wand is composed of soil-healing ingredients, inclusing a seaweed-based casing and a bio-plug that acts as a 'soil prebiotic', helping to improve soil water retention, reduce nutrient leaching, and increase microbial biodiversity. Soil microbial activity is a fundamental factor in terrestrial carbon sequestration. 

Stretch Goals:
1. Launch an Events Environmental Stewardship Program - for further soil restoration
We want to help festivals and other large outdoor events improve their environmental legacy. We will take before and after drone footage of event sites, perform soil analysis, and suggest improvements for land stewardship. We will then design festival-specific Light Wands innoculated with restorative and native fungi and microbial species to further heal land damage in effected sites. 
2. Create an Educational Platform for soil health and environmental stewardship




We have big ideas and need your help to get there. We want to empower everyone to heal the Earth, which is what the Nyoka Light Wand project is all about.


We are working on developing the Light Wand, and are getting ready to launch a kickstarter to back larger production runs.
The Light Wand kit contains 4 glow charges, a reusable cap + necklace attachment, and 4 wands. When you have used the charges (we recommend using to commemorate special moments) we ask that you bury the wands in the soil. The seaweed casing and bioplug are both GREAT for the soil, specifically the microbiome. The microbiome NEEDS OUR HELP right now. With all of the roadways, toxins, and foreign agents in the environment, the Earths microbiome is suffering. This microbiome forms the basis for every major geochemical cycling process that regulates the literal weather, nutrient cycling, carbon sequestration (ding ding ding), and even disease transmission. 

We know a few buried Light Wands won't jumpstart the healing process, but what about thousands? What about millions? What would that do to our collective psyche if everyone who used a Light Wand took the time to return it to the Earth? How would that change your life? 

Help support our mission by pledging a monthly amount. We will post videos, text updates, ask the community questions and listen to your opinions, offer first-access to new products, and so much more. We are still working on the first-ever Light Wand prototypes, and will only be offering a set amount at the beginning. Sign up now to reserve your spot as one of the first people ever to own a Nyoka Light Wand. 

We CAN do something about climate change and it starts right beneath our feet. It starts with all of us. 

May 14, 2018: Launch Nyoka Patreon! Just in time for the BC Tech Summit where we hope to garner some attention and spread the word about the Nyoka project.
