Does the ethanol based cutlery break down in landfills?

    Corn plastic can break down in landfills, but it can take anywhere from 100 to 1000 years to biodegrade completely. Regular plastic only begins to decompose after 700 years in a landfill, so corn plastic compares favorably to it. Unlike regular plastic, corn plastic can also be composted. However, this composting takes 1-6 months and can only be done in one of 113 commercial facilities, only a quarter of which accept residential waste.
