With The Design Can’s clever new Self-Destructo Candle, you can literally burn your candle at both ends. The Self-Destructo is a traditional paraffin pillar candle with an embedded LED light. If you replace the battery occasionally, the LED “candle” will last forever. However, if you ever get tired of it – you don’t need to worry about sending yet another gadget to landfill. Instead, just flip the candle over, cut the wick, light it, and watch it slowly melt away. Self-destruction is the future of eco-design!
