Mushroom Materials from Ecovative Design is a completely biodegradable packing material that is actually grown from mycelium, the fungus that forms mushrooms. Ecovative Design grows the mycelium until it fills a predetermined space, then bakes the result to halt the process, resulting in a stable product that can be used as biodegradable packaging, wall insulation, or even furniture.
