Product: 

Food service packaging and dinnerware including cups, plates, bowls, hinged-lid containers and sandwich wraps.

Material: 

EarthShell's packaging products are made out of common biodegradable natural resources such as limestone, starch (potato, corn, wheat, rice and tapioca), recycled fiber, "processing agents," air, water and protective coatings (paraffin wax and select polymers). EarthShell packaging is, according to EarthShell, biodegradable and recyclable through composting in a commercial facility or home composting. EarthShell packaging reportedly poses no significant environmental impact in an aquatic environment and completely biodegrades within 60 to 90 days in a roadside environment, given "normal" rainfall. EarthShell is not certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute.
