"compostable" plastic from TJ's??

toodie jane | Apr 16, 2006 12:50 PM

I don't buy much produce at Trader Joe's because I don't like all the extra packaging and the fact that I can't pick and choose my own items.

I did buy some pretty young organic zukes yesterday, and they came on a plastic try labled on the back

"NATURE WORKS PLA (sic)
COMPOSTABLE"

Anyone familiar with this? Do they really mean compostable, not recyclable? NO recycle symbol. If it's plastic, and compostable, do we really want this is our compost stream?

Anyone?
