Ecovative

Eben Bayer, the CEO of Ecovative Design, introduces their products, which he intends to be replacements for environmentally damaging synthetics, like plastics and Styrofoam. Ecovative's first product is "Ecocradle," a "shipping fertile soil," as Eben describes it, that is made only from agricultural byproducts. It is meant to replace the 20 million pounds of Styrofoam that are shipped every year and are almost everywhere around us. Unlike Styrofoam, "Ecocradle" is grown indoors, in the dark, without electricity or petroleum and is 100% compostable. "Ecocradle,"in its manufacturing, uses ten times less carbon dioxide and eight times less energy than Styrofoam. With the "Ecocradle" and future invention, Ecovative is eliminating our wasteful use of plastics and other synthetics one product at a time.
