  1. Well isn’t this just the craziest and most coolest thing! We need a whole bunch of this fungi everywhere. I had no idea that anything could even survive off of polyurethane alone. Can you imagine how much of a huge help this could be?? It almost seems too good to be true!

  2. This is fascinating! Could you imagine the implications of utilizing biology to reduce our plastic waste? I almost think this could backfire- by negating the reason we use plastic in the first place (to keep stuff clean)? But even so, this is an interesting discovery that could solve a lot of problems.
