Restore Mushroom Packaging is a 100-percent renewable product derived from non-food agricultural byproducts and mushroom roots. The product makes use of material that would otherwise be discarded to create an all-natural, engineered protective packaging solution that can be composted. The cushions are custom-engineered to meet customers' individual needs and are grown through a low-energy and automated process, which involves filling the raw materials evenly into forms that allow them to take the final shapes. The mycelium is mixed with regionally sourced agricultural waste and grows indoors without the need for light, watering, or petrochemicals. According to the manufacturer, the cushions are completely biodegradable and home compostable, allowing for easy and environmentally sound disposal.

Protective packaging solution that is both cost-effective and sustainable--that's thinking out of the box and very impressive. I hope we apply this type of innovation throughout the packaging industry.
