EcoCradle: Biodegradable mushroom packaging | Going Green | The Earth Times via @Earth_Times
Dell, PUMA, Crate and Barrel and 3M recognize the economic and environmental benefits of mushroom packaging. Dell tested the packaging and is shipping PowerEdge R710 servers to select customers. "Our value proposition to the customer is that we're going to give you the same performance at the same price as polystyrene," said a Dell executive, "but we're going to create a product that isn't trash when it arrives at your house. It's actually a nutrient for the environment."
