CHALLENGE

Styrofoam is an immense ecological burden, but it’s still very present in many parts of our lives. It’s cheap, light weight, and has good impact properties, so it’s easy to forget that it fills up nearly 30% of all land fills. Even cycling, with eco-conscious consumers, have life-saving Styrofoam safety accessories.

SOLUTION

Compositive.bio is working to grow and certify a bike helmet made of mushroom mycelium–the MycoHelmet. Mycelium offers a truly sustainable alternative to conventional Styrofoam, with similar impact properties, and low growing costs. The environmental impact of Styrofoam is immense, and it is Compositive’s vision to completely replace it, starting with the MycoHelmet. Grow, wear, compost–Let's make cycling 100% sustainable.
