Below is the website and description for the clamshells I've been
I haven't tried them on my farm but I've used them when buying mushrooms. I
visited an organic mushroom farm where these are used. The clamshells look
just like clear plastic. Andrew said he couldn't find a way to get away
from packaging. This works well for them. They're compostable. I didn't
find any trace of them in my compost pile.
