100 Words

The aim of my project is to open the user’s eyes to the nation’s throw-away nature. I have been developing zero waste packaging with a secondary function so that everything can either be 100% recycled, or re-used. This project is specifically tailored for laptop packaging and performs as a laptop stand in its second function. The laptop is protected by an all-natural substance grown from mycelium (mushroom fibres) and agricultural by-product (wood chippings). The mycelium acts like a glue growing throughout the wood chippings bonding the mix together to create a spongy substrate similar to Styrofoam while being 100% biodegradable.
