Did you know that mushrooms have the ability to break down toxic things in our environment like dirty oil, plastic, and chemicals? This process is called mycoremediation.

Mycoremediation is a powerful opportunity for us to heal the Earth from the pollution humans have inflicted on it. Fungi have been proven successful in remediating damage from bacteria, heavy metals, and chemical pollutants in our environment. Mycoremediation can be used and learned by anyone and successfully applied by anyone in their own backyard or on a larger commercial scale. Its accessibility, lack of cost, and scalability means it is one of the most promising tools we have to fight and tackle pollution on our Earth. Not to mention the power of medicinal mushrooms to tackle the pollution in our bodies as well!
