Eco-friendly alternative to Styrofoam

Eco-friendly alternative to Styrofoam

Eco-friendly alternative to Styrofoam is literally grown, not manufactured. A growing organism transforms agricultural byproducts like cotton seed hulls and buck wheat hulls into a beautiful protective package. This patented process is inspired by the efficiency of nature and uses a filamentous fungi (mycelium, or mushroom “roots”) to bond this packaging into almost any shape.
This material packaging provides the same cushioning, strength and protection as petrochemical-based materials such as Styrofoam. However, unlike Styrofoam, it won’t persist in a landfill or as litter. When you’re done, it can be tossed into your garden or compost pile. Additionally, iit is anaerobically compostable, so it will also break down without the presence of oxygen.

Unfortunately kinda pricey.
