Ecovative Mushroom Packaging is an innovative solution for the supply and distribution chain. Not only is the material fully sustainable—which is important given the accelerating force of climate change and its link to consumption—but it is also one of the more flexible options on the market.
Ecovative Mushroom Packaging utilizes mycelium, which is the vegetative part of a fungus or a fungus-like bacterial colony, "as a self-assembling biological binder that can be used to fuse organic agricultural byproducts such as wood chips. The resulting packaging solution is one that is both bio-based and durable. In addition to this, the material is also water-resistant and can successfully insulate the enclosed contents.
The designers at Ecovative Mushroom Packaging offer a fully custom process, molding the mycelium packaging to the exact specification and needs of each client.
