Use Sustainable Materials, Stop Plastic!
Polymer based synthetic materials like plastic last for long, hundreds of years, part of our daily use packaging, furniture, and garments. Use of new sustainable materials is the future and key to survival. Bioengineered silk produced by yeast has an identical molecular structure to a specific type of spider silk called dragline silk. This protein based material have unique physical properties such as strength, toughness and elasticity. Similarly leather can be replaced by materials produced through Mycelium, underground root structure of mushrooms. This can be produced in days versus years, without killing the animals.
