Where do mushrooms come from? They could come from packaging-at least that’s what Agata Jaworksa has proposed in her master’s thesis for the Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands. Jaworska’s Made in Transit project describes a revolutionary supply chain concept where packaging is used as an environment for perishable products to actually grow. A package prototype illustrates the idea, demonstrating how spores might grow into oyster mushrooms during shipping and as the package sits in the store.
