Case Studies

Dell Server Multi Pack

Dell has been leading the electronics industry in sustainability and is now recognized in the marketplace for environmentally responsible packaging. Ecovative designed Mushroom® Packaging components to replace fabricated EPE- polyethylene foam parts that provide cushioning and bracing in large packages for Dell servers. These packages tip the scales at over 200 lbs, and these sensitive servers require the utmost protection. Ecovative's packaging design team worked with Dell's packaging engineers to create geometries that would protect the hard drives from experiencing damaging G loads in the event of a drop.

Rich Brilliant Willing (RBW)

For Rich Brilliant Willing (RBW), a designer and manufacturer of LED-based lighting solutions for architectural interiors based in New York City, it was important to offer customers a premium product experience, which meant starting with a great unboxing experience.

“When a customer orders a high-end product, the manufacturer places a great deal of value on presentation and making sure the product looks good in its package,” says Theo Richardson, co-founder and partner of RBW. “The simplistic nature of Ecovative Mushroom® Packaging was a perfect complement to our energy-efficient lighting offerings, and we knew we wanted to be among the first companies to tell this story and offer such an innovative package.” Ahead of the first distribution, the company introduced the Ecovative Mushroom® Packaging solution through its website and customer newsletter, and enjoyed a featured article in Packaging World Magazine.

Stanhope Seta

Stanhope Seta Ltd. manufactures precision testing equipment and quality control products. As such, they naturally had high expectations for their new packaging solution: it had to be made from sustainable material, make it easier to pack up products for shipping, and offer excellent protection while en route to the customer. Along with sales partner Sealed Air, Ecovative delivered a custom solution grown from Mushroom Packaging that did just that. UK based Stanhope Seta was the first company in Europe to use Mushroom Packaging, and currently ships products protected with Mushroom Packaging to their customers around the world.

Merck Forest and Farmland Center

Merck Forest and Farmland Center is an education non-profit that strives to teach and demonstrate innovative and sustainable management of forest and farmland. On their 3,000 acre property, Merck has a Vermont-certified organic sugarbush, which produced nearly 1,000 gallons of syrup in 2015.

Merck has been taking strides to make their entire sugaring process more sustainable, including shifting from canning syrup in plastic containers to easy-to-recycle glass containers.

Mushroom® Packaging has brought them one step closer to their sustainable goal by allowing them to move away from using foam shipping containers. So far customer reviews have been positive, and Merck hopes that other sugarmakers will start to consider alternative means, like Mushroom Packaging, for shipping their maple products too.
