When bringing up this company in conversation with my peers starting with the term “Mushroom technology” the look that you may receive will be interesting and be prepared to justify yourself. Ecovative design is a company that makes biodegradable packaging. Well grows, they grow their own materials in house by cloning the mushroom and using the natural properties of them to enhance a sustainable source of packaging, insulation, automotive and with the aid of in house design if you have a vision that you believe their mushrooms could be the material for you then they are open to discussion. Unlike polymers as soon as these products are finished with they can be composted and within a matter of weeks they would have degraded and nourished the soil. Are we looking at the successor of plastics?
