I Love Corn Husks

I’m packing up DVD mailers this evening… we’re submitting the doc to festivals… and as per usual, while packaging the DVDs in plastic cases, plastic envelopes, and plastic bubble wrap, I get discouraged about all the plastic I churn out into the world on a monthly basis (although, nothing depresses me more than styrofoam peanuts.) As I lament to Peter how mankind is slowly smothering the planet with their non-biodegradable crap, he tells me of a new movement in consumer goods packaging that uses corn-based packaging. When I read things like this, it gives me hope that all is not lost. Mankind is redeemable.
