Each lamp takes four egg cartons that are mixed with water. The resulting pulp is poured over a mold and smoothed by hand.
It takes a few days for the pieces to dry, and then each section is held together by aluminium screw posts.
The lighting component is made up of a cloth electrical cord and recyclable electrical parts.
To keep the desk lamp stable, a paper bag full of bird seed weighs down the base.
When the Trash Me lamp life cycle comes to an end, the parts can be reused or recycled.
