Giving New Meaning to A Bowl of Oranges

ABC News: Researchers Seek Plastics From Fruit

A fascinating -- and encouraging -- story of how alternatives to plastic are being created and tested. I have to wonder how biodegradable and/or recyclable this plastic would be, however, if it contains CO2.

Of course, organic gardeners have been familiar with citrus products, and specifically limonene, for some time as a fabulous natural pest controller.

Reading the last part of the article mentioning corn plastics made me feel like a pioneer, as I'm already patronizing these products. I recently purchased some BioBags at this site for collecting dog poop.
