  • Clarification on corn polymers

    Environment


    In response to Belu Water,
    in the thread

    This product is interesting and is working on many levels to achieve positive outcomes.

    I wonder however, about the decision to use corn polymers instead of recyclable pet. Does making a product that dissapears after a year have more promise than one that can be used repeatedly, or be turned into something else? As one of the more water-intensive crops, how do the figures weigh up on resource and land use?
