RE: [greenyes] Plastic from corn?

Know nothing of Cargill's work....but I do know that Patagonia Clothing was
looking at a corn based alternative to polyester fleece. They came to the
astounding conclusion that while it has significant environmental benefit,
they could not be assured the manufacturer was not using GMO corn for the
material, and hence refused it. Their write up on it pointed out that it is
not necessarily recyclable....but compostable!

What does anyone know about Cargill's plastic made from corn? Is it a
solution or just good PR?
