Recycling is a worthy endeavor for most of us in our daily lives, and will continue to be for years to come. Now imagine a society where everything is recycled using a system with no electricity and runs forever. Forever is a very long time, but at Ecovative, it is here and now.
The material is 'grown' from agricultural byproducts and mycelium, which is a fungal network of threadlike cells. In a week or less, in the dark, with no watering, the mycelium digests the agricultural byproducts creating a beautiful structural material which can replace plastic foams, particleboard and more.
Ecovative is committed to not just sustainability, but actually making the planet a better place for all organisms on earth. We applaud their efforts in the 'kingdom of fungi' to grow ultra-rapid, renewable, eco-materials.
