Unscramble the Blue Letters

The first prototypes were none of those things. But after many thousands of iterations, we have a material, and we call it Mylo. And Mylo does everything we set out for it. It's beautiful, it's functional, but most importantly, it's snstbaaiule. So when you grow mmsrhuoos, it takes about a little under one square meter of land to grow one kilogram of mushrooms. cratsnot that to cows -- takes about 97 square meters of land to grow one kilogram of cow. And when we're growing Mylo, we're doing this in high-density viarctel agriculture, and we pwoer it with 100 pnrecet renewable energy.

It's beautiful, it's functional, but most importantly, it's sustainable. So when you grow mushrooms, it takes about a little under one square meter of land to grow one kilogram of mushrooms. Contrast that to cows -- takes about 97 square meters of land to grow one kilogram of cow. And when we're growing Mylo, we're doing this in high-density vertical agriculture, and we power it with 100 percent renewable energy.
