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."
