Tiny House Contends for Innovation Prize

We are thrilled to announce that Ecovative’s Mushroom Tiny House project, and the concept of grown-in-place Mushroom® Insulation, has been selected as one of 10 finalists for the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Prize! 144 applicants were screened by Cradle to Cradle certification experts, toxicologists from ToxServices, and building professionals from Make It Right. These judges selected 10 finalists who are now being considered for the $250,000 cash prize. The 10 finalists represent alternatives to a range of traditional building products, including insulation, paint, drywall, siding, roofing, and construction panels. Three winners will share the cash prize, with 1st place receiving $125,000, 2nd winning $75,000 and 3rd getting $50,000. The three winners will be announced on November 15th, 2013 at the Institute’s Innovation Celebration Gala in New York City.
