Netherland based Grown.Bio is a biotechnology company creating high performance and natural products that are safe and sustainable. With this grow it yourself kit, Grown.Bio encourages you to experiment with this fast growing living organism. Mycelium is the root structure of mushrooms and can be considered as an ecological alternative to fossil-fuel based plastics such as expanded polystyrene (EPS) and expanded polypropene (EPP).

The outcome material is biodegradable, produced CO2 negative and results in a light and elegant composite that is suitable for packaging, insulation or interior design.
