Has anyone tried out the clamshells made from corn? I use cellophane
bags that are compostable for most of our market items, but there are
some vegetables/fruits that would display better in the clamshell. I
wish I could just forget the packaging, but it's amazing how much
better even tomatoes sell, if they are in a package of some kind.
Below is the website and description for the clamshells I've been
"Compostable hinged clamshell containers are designed to keep
perishables fresher, longer because of a superior seal you won't find
on conventional clamshell containers. Made from 100% renewable
resources. Environmental message will appeal to customers."
