The UK-based Magical Mushroom Company uses mycelium, the root-like structure of mushrooms, to produce large-scale protective packaging solutions made from upcycled organic materials, like hemp. Their aim is to offer a safe, sustainable, and totally home-compostable alternative to plastic foams. Ideal for packaging, insulation and more. According to their website, they offer made to order design services for protective packaging solutions in any size, shape or form. Including 3D rendering, prototyping and testing. With their environmentally controlled vertical grow system, it takes them just 7 days for your packaging to be created.
