Cool - I love stuff like that. I just heard about lip balm and shea butter that come in a compostable container here on this blog:

I wish more product containers were like that.

Awesome! While I believe that using corn as a biofuel is an idea that has came and went (not really much of an energysaver and it may pollute almost as much as gasoline) but using it for biodegradable containers - you can't beat that!
