Compostable, biodegradable polylactic-acid bags may be too noisy for U.S. snack food fans. But Frito-Lay has decided that Canadians are willing to put up with a loud bag in exchange for the environment. Still think it's too loud? Then you can get a set of earplugs from the company! Check out this advertisement from the company about the plan -- it's interesting they call it a "public service announcement." And if you want more information about SunChips packaging and PLA, check out the upcoming Sustainable Plastics Packaging conference, scheduled for Dec. 8-9 in Atlanta.
