Greetings from Denver, CO! One of the most simple and yet interesting things I have came across on my travels this week is this mug. Seems strange but this mug is made out of 100% corn. Corn Plastic has become a new medium for product design as it is not only inexpensive and non-petroleum based, but biodegradable as well! Instead of a standard plastic piece decomposing somewhere between 1000-2000 years after this mug is “discarded” for whatever reason will take somewhere between 90-100 days in compost. OYO Mountain Products has been leading the fore front on sustainable products for climbing, as well as all mountain activities, and has been one of my finds here in The Centennial State. More to come!
