"Eco-Packaging" Finalist: Co-op Corn Starch Bags
Simple, functional, biodegrable, and even compostable - Ryan Freeburn's entry in our "Eco-Packaging" Contest has eco-mojo to spare. His local co-op packages their goods in corn starch-based plastic bags instead of what Ryan refers to as "regular old wastefulplastic bag[s]". This way, once Ryan is finished with these radishes (or whatever else he may buy from the co-op), he can simply throw the bag in his compost instead of the trash. With little to no packaging ending up in the landfill, Ryan's entry shows why we get excited about bioplastics.
