The Problem

As lanterns’ angles are shaped to spread as little light as necessary to avoid light pollution, shrubs, and bushes next to the paths remain dark.

Our Solution

Glowing plants that slightly illuminate these greens in a minor intensity of yellow light. Such plants are genetically manipulated as the enzyme luciferase – which naturally occurs in fireflies and jack-o’-lantern mushrooms – is added to their DNA to make them glow with the strength of a reading light.1
