This LED Lightbulb Has A Swappable Core To Reduce Waste

The BrightYolk is an LED lightbulb with its own changeable internal lightbulb. A regular LED lightbulb might last for long enough for you to become a Gladwellian Outlier twice over, but once it’s dead, it’s dead, and you have to toss away the whole life-support unit that surrounds the tiny LED along with the LED itself. The BrightYolk, on the other hand, can be opened up like a flashlight, giving access to a much smaller "power module" that can be swapped out when the original expires. This way, you waste less plastic and fewer electronic components—assuming, that is, that the modular design doesn’t use more plastic to begin with, like a phone with a removable battery.
