In this speech, Eben Bayer explains how he has discovered a method to use mushrooms to create materials that share similar properties as the world's most popular plastics. As the co-founder and CEO of Ecovative Design, a bio-materials company, Eban Bayer is constantly searching for new ways to design sustainable products and he is confident that the use of this fungus can have enormously positive payoffs for the planet.
Eben Bayer explains how mushrooms serve as the earth's most effective recycling system. Bayer discovered that a small component of mushrooms known as mycelium, is actually self-assembling and can be used to grow materials with the same properties as plastics. He and his team of researchers have pioneered this part of the mushroom to be used as glue to mold things together such as furniture and electronics. Eben Bayer's speech is informative and inspiring, demonstrating the steps being taken to develop a sustainable planet.
