The ‘feed’ that the mushrooms grow on can vary, meaning that locally available materials can be used, which makes the product ideal for manufacturing all over the world: “The raw material inputs of EcoCradle™ are selected based on regionally available agricultural by-products. So a factory in Texas or China might use cotton burrs, and a factory in Virginia or Spain might use rice husks and soybean hulls. By manufacturing regionally, and using local feedstocks, we aim to minimize the trucking of raw and finished materials. And according to the Ecocradle site, it is cost-competitive with polluting polystyrene and other packaging materials.
