Not So Biodegradable Corn Based USB Drive

This corn based biodegradable flash stick is definitely a step in the write direction, but a little over zealous on the claim of being a biodegradable flash drive.  The stick has a corn based shape for the outside, but you’ve still got the internal flash memory and PCB board holding it all together.  So don’t feel too good when you dump this in the trash – it’ll still be around after 500 years.

But, it’s a step in the right direction.  At least the outside is biodegradable, so we’re going to give you props for that. As EverythingUSB says “Should be a great promo gift at the next Ethanol trade show…” Source:
