Mushrooms as a #ClimateTech solution? Yup. ￼ Mycelium-based products fit into nearly all climate sectors, ranging from plant-based meats (looking at you My Forest Foods, Meati Foods), to packing materials (hey Evocative) & everything in between!
Ever heard of Mycelium?
We hadn’t either.
According to Work Week’s Keep Cool Report, Mycelium is the living root structure of mushrooms. More than 90% of plants depend on it to supply them with crucial nutrients and defend them from disease.
Essentially, without Mycelium all ecosystems would fail. So why not harness this as the conjunction of nature-based solutions and ClimateTech?
Some companies are! Myco Technology, Meati, Ecovative, and My Forest Foods are some of the top players transforming this fungus into our future.

On Tuesday, the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) was released, representing the most comprehensive scientific evaluation of climate change.
In response to a changing climate, we must create technologies and infrastructure improvements that are designed to mitigate and/or withstand the effects.
