Bio-Peanuts

We all know those styrofoam cups, packing materials and peanuts are not good for the environment. But what are the alternatives for these products? Well, you can pop your own corn for packing (minus the salt) or use corn/potato starch peanuts. Once wet they just dissolve and you can compost them. Check LiveEarth.org for an ongoing discussion of how you can practice solutions to save the earth.
