An alternative to polystyrene

The start-up

As an alternative to polystyrene, Ecovative has invented a 100% home-compostable material. Based on mycelium from mushroom roots and agricultural waste, it is highly resistant. An alternative to polystyrene and polypropylene, it can be used as a protective foam, but it also has applications for cosmetics and furniture.
