EcoCradle- Green alternative to polystyrene packaging made from farm waste

EcoCradle, the green alternative to polystyrene packaging made from farm waste and mushrooms is just off the block. The inventors are Bayer and Gavin McIntyre, classmates from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.

The product uses 10 times less energy to produce, and biodegrades into a natural fertilizer. It is created using almost no energy, and almost no CO2 emissions. The production cost is comparable to that of polystyrene.

Environmentalist world-wide are pinning lot of hopes on this new material.
