Could Mushrooms Take the Place of Styrofoam?

Via Treehugger

Bayer has channeled his anger towards what he calls "the toxic white stuff" or Styrofoam into coming up with a better solution. We currently spend $20 billion a year to produce all sorts of Styrofoam, from coolers to carryout containers and it takes 1.5 liters of petrol to produce just one cubic foot of the stuff. Currently, according to Bayer, Styrofoam occupies 25 percent of our landfills. Instead, we need to come up with a material that fits into nature's own recycling system.
