Our groundbreaking material is a combination of the vegetative part of mushrooms called "mycelium" and fiberous agricultural waste. The end product is a completely sustainable replacement to polystyrene styrofoam and cardboard which is:
Better thermal insulator than fibreglass
Stronger pound for pound than concrete
Mold and water resistant, non toxic, odorless
Low cost and limitless sustainable supply
Customisable to shape, density, and surface finish
WHAT WE DO
We work together with our clients to create packaging designs that will easily replace and fit into existing processes - hassle free.
Once the packaging is designed, we manufacture the finished product. We work with our clients to scale up order quantities and ship globally.
For clients with inhouse design teams, we supply the raw material directly to their existing packaging manufacturers. The transition to our material processes is minimal.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT
In 2020 - to date 6 US states and over 100 US cities have polystyrene bans and 25 countries have initiatives that financially encourage companies to use sustainable packaging materials and fine the use of polystyrene.
In 2021 - The European Union Single-Use Plastics Directive will ban 10 single-use plastic products from all 27 countries in the EU. This includes all oxo-degradable plastics and polystyrene products.
In 2025 - The Australian Packaging Covenant will ban all non-reusable, non-recyclable or non-compostable packaging, specifically polystyrene.
250 major brands including Starbucks, Mars, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Kelloggs, Unilever, Nestlé, Dunkin, L'Oreal, H&M, have pledged to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to eliminate all single-use plastics, so that all packaging can be recycled by 2025.
