Submission + - Dell Tests Packaging Material Made of Mushrooms (

jones_supa writes: "Dell said this week that it will begin shipping one server configuration with a packaging material with a more ecological approach, one that's grown using mushroom spores. First to appear along the PowerEdge R710 server, the mushroom mycelium can be grown into the shape needed for the packaging. Upon receipt, the packaging can then be composted. Dell already ships many of its notebooks and smartphones using a cushion of bamboo, another plant that grows easily in the wild."
