5 June 2010 - 17:16Compostable Corn Cup?
At the Desert Moon Cafe I got a drink in a new kind of plastic cup. It claims to be made of corn and “compostable.” To me it is indistinguishable from a conventional PETE cup.
Much as I enjoy the idea of drinking my corn syrup from a corn-cob cup, I’m skeptical about this claim. So I decided to test it. Since I also happen to have a PETE cup
PETE cups are recycle code 1 and the compostable cup is type 7, which I think means “other.”
I buried the cups in the ground (today, June 4 2010) and will check up on them in a month or so.
