Ecovative mushroom products in New York is replacing plastic and styrofoam packaging materials with alternatives made from agricultural waste and the self-assembling glue in mushrooms - mycelium. The products are bio-degradable, non-toxic and cost competitive. Ecovative has won numerous awards, including World Economic Forum recognition as a Tech Pioneer and is partnering with Fortune 500 firms like 3M and Sealed Air. Last month Forbes included Ecovative's founders among 30 leaders under the age of 30 who are Moving the World.
