S2 Ep 8: How Ecovative is Solving Sustainability Through Mushrooms


What happens when plastic, meat and leather become unsustainable to produce? You up-cycle from natural growing products like mushrooms, using cutting-edge mycelium technology.

Eben Bayer is CEO of Ecovative, the biotechnology company, pioneering the art and science of growing complete structures with mycelium.

Nick and Eben get into how a small mushroom sample can create whole sheets of tissue, why Ecovative is growing bacon, and how the business interacts with other industries such as fashion and retail.

You’ll also hear who else is inspiring Eben in the climate tech space right now.
