Rigid Mycelium Box for Mirror Water


Ashurst Court, London Rd, Wheatley, Oxford OX33 1ER, UK


Mirror Water is a skincare and lifestyle brand that focuses on self-reflection as a way to transform self-care. By creating an online community, they hope to transform individuals’ well-being and outlook by creating sustainable products made from raw ingredients. Mirror Water had a request to create an eco-friendly box for their products.


At Maxipos we decided to create a sustainable box for Mirror Water. Reducing the environmental impact was paramount when creating this product, so we worked with our most innovative and sustainable supplier to create a box entirely from Mycelium (mushrooms!) mixed with agricultural by-products.


We have created a biodegradable box that can be added to food waste, broken down and dispersed in the garden or even mixed with seeds to grow wildflowers. It is made to fully biodegrade in around 45 days, however, when stored in dry conditions its shelf life is 30 years.

Curator’s Insight

I’m truly amazed by the dedication and creativity that went into this project. It’s not just about making a box; it’s about making a positive impact on the environment and the people using it.

In a world where self-care and sustainability are becoming more important than ever, Mirror Water and Maxipos are setting a fantastic example. Their eco-friendly box is a reflection of their values and commitment to a greener future.
