Technology

Styrofoam blanks have been the standard for so long because it is such a lightweight, flexible material that can be easily manipulated, it is also fairly affordable. This is where we come in—we’ve found that by changing different factors in the growing process, we can end up with mycelium products that are way different from one another. The way you grow it, the mushroom strain, and the substrate are all factors in how mycelium is produced. This makes it an extremely viable alternative to Styrofoam as well as other types of plastics. 

 

We’ve also ensured that how we source our materials and how they interact with the environment after they’ve left us are eco-friendly as well. We source our mushrooms and substrate from different local farms and growers around New England. We use their “waste” to create our blanks, making a closed loop. We also use an edible mushroom strain, so if it is ingested by a human or animal, no harm will be done (it just won’t taste that good). We’ve thought through every step of our process to ensure that we’re not only delivering the best blank that we can, but that we’re protecting our environment through all of it. 

 

Right now, we’re still in the research and development phase, working on building the perfect three by six foot blank. Once the prototype is complete, we’ll manufacture blanks to send out to our shaper and surfer friends and gather their feedback. If you’d like to be one of these people, let us know by contacting us below :)
