Are Mushrooms the New Plastic?: Ecovative Design Challenge

By asking participants “What if we could grow our own packaging?” we invite them to explore Ecovative mushroom materials, a Styrofoam (polystyrene) packaging alternative grown from mycelium (mushroom “roots”) and agricultural waste. Participants compare the life cycle of polystyrene to that of Ecovative and design and make their own Ecovative product.
