The “Ecovative” Ecocradle is a boon to environmentally stressed package designers, companies relying on the shipping industry, and consumers demanding better practices. The renewable and compostable mushroom compound material competes directly with traditional Styrofoam packaging. It’s grown with fungal mycelium fibers and natural agricultural byproducts in a container the shape of what it is meant to become. After about a week it’s full grown and heat treated to last. For the thorough 10 minute explanation watch the CEO’s TED Talk. Get ready to use and demand “the world’s first packaging made from mushrooms”!
