    I am so glad you wrote about this! I have been furious over the false marketing of cornstarch disposables. They are only compostable in commercial composters, which very few counties have. Not only is it misleading but it is promoting bio-engineered corn and all the inherent problems. I am glad to hear about an alternative but I still think reusing is the best way to go.
    Thank you!

    Wasn’t aware of the corn starch thing .. thank you!

    However I’m with you when it comes to land space. After all, the stuff’s got to be grown somewhere, and I’ll bet my bottom dollar growing this will be a better revenue earner than anything food-producing.

    This is why green has to *start* with using more environmentally friendly products, like this, but *END* with wholesale livining and social changes.

    Sorry to shout .. I must need to stroke the cat or something :)
