UK-based Magical Mushroom’s eco-friendly packaging can replace plastic

Plastic packaging is seen as a major threat to human health and the environment, with patches of single-use plastics still present in our previously pristine oceans.

Aside from plastic, the mushroom mix produced by the London-based Magical Mushroom Company may also be used to replace cardboard in packaging.

Plastic packaging is seen as a major threat to human health and the environment, with patches of single-use plastics still present in our previously pristine oceans. A business is now working on its aim of replacing packaging with a mushroom mix.

The Magical Mushroom Company, situated in London, just acquired £3 million in early capital to fund their eco-friendly packaging. In addition to plastic, the Magical Mushroom Company’s mushroom mix may be used in place of cardboard in packaging.

The firm combines agricultural waste with the “root structure of a mushroom” to create a biodegradable material that is cost competitive with current packaging solutions.

The best feature about their substance is that it does not require chemicals to degrade and will degrade naturally in 45 days.

According to Paul Gilligan, CEO of the Magical Mushroom Company, enterprises and governments alike have eight years to fulfill the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

“[Businesses] require feasible and cost-effective ways to dramatically cut their carbon footprint throughout their whole supply chain.”

A viable and cost-effective solution to pervasive plastic packaging is urgently required.
