Innovation Nation: Mushroom Packaging
After a few days of incubating, molding and drying, these mushroom roots are ready to be used... as packaging material! Developed by the team of 20-somethings straight out of college, this biodegradable material is also fireproof and a good insulator. Then you can toss it in the compost heap. Get a peek at packaging in the 21st century in this episode of Innovation Nation with Miles O'Brien.
