How mycelium helps to reduce CO2 emissions

How can we help our Planet with Packaging? 

Mushroom® Packaging is highly functional, visibly stunning and eco-friendly: packaging made out of mycelium is a great way to show how effective sustainable packaging can be. With the amount of CO2 that is saved during the growing process, it plays a huge role in saving the climate too.

These packaging products only need 2 ingredients:

  • local agricultural waste, mostly hemp.
  • mycelium, which are the roots of mushrooms. 

Why hemp? Because hemp captures the most CO2 per square acre of almost all crops while growing. So, when we make mycelium products, the hemp has already done some work by taking a lot of CO2. Over the years, this process has enabled us to save tonnes of CO2.
