Corn Mugs These corn mugs are environmentally sustainable products made from 100% corn based plastics, known as PLA Plastic. They are domestically produced, completely biodegradable, microwave safe, and environmentally friendly. Unlike the conventional PET Plastics, PLA Plastic uses no petroleum products as raw materials, lessening our country’s reliance on foreign oil for consumer goods. According to an independent study commissioned by NatureWorks LLC, Corn Plastic uses 65% less energy and produces 68% fewer greenhouse gasses in the manufacturing process. Corn Plastic is really biodegradable. That doesn’t mean it will disintegrate while you are using it. Your Corn Mug is very sturdy and will last as long as a conventional plastic mug, so it is a good idea not to throw it on your compost pile. The best place for unwanted PLA plastics is a PLA recycling facility where they will be made into new Corn Plastic products, or a PLA composting facility where specific enzymes and a controlled environment will completely biodegrade the plastics in 90 days. But we think you will want to hold onto your corn plastic mug and use it again and again! We would recommend you hand wash it because it may warp in the dishwasher. PLA Plastic is made by fermenting the starches found in corn. The sugars in the corn’s starch ferments into a compound called Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) which can then be used to create plastic pellets that are injection molded into PLA Plastic products.
Eye pillows Our eye pillows are handmade with reused fabrics and natural materials. You can choose from a combination of home grown dried lavender, buckwheat hulls and/or flax seed. Let us know which combination you would like. Buckwheat hulls are lighter, flax seed would be a little heavier and a combination of the two may be just right for you. They can be with or without lavender. Fabrics may vary depending on what is available. We also have a child’s size.
Corn Heater Our corn heaters are made of reused fabrics and natural local dried corn. There is an inside sleeve and an outer cover that can be removed and washed. Corn Heater – stays warm longer! Put in microwave and heat 30 seconds at a time until warm enough. WARNING: Can get very hot – do not put on skin unless you are sure it is not too hot – especially with children. Fabrics may vary depending on what is available.
