Re: [greenyes] Plastic from corn?


I know that this is way over simplified, but wouldn't it be great if all
film plastics were biodegradable, and all plastic containers were made from
commonly recyclable plastics!

Then all of the ag film and bags that are used for garbage would be
composted, and the containers could be recycled without fear of being
contaminated with biodegradable materials.

This is a relatively easy message for consumers to understand, so recycling
programs would continue to be effective.

All in favor, write your congress(wo)man!
