Creating a new class of packaging material

Eben Boyer, product designer, talks about creating a new class of packaging material by using a living organism called mycelium. The idea is to reduce petroleum-based packaging and the toxic waste building up across the planet. One of the most important outcomes may be the ability to use local materials or feedstocks.

There is a need to think about the packaging so that there is lesser use of the plastics that can be destroyed in the earth and so is choking the earth and leaving poisons for human life.
