Received a gift card awhile ago and it says on the back that it's also biodegrable so put it in your compost...Can't remember what company it was though...Target???

Well, interesting!
a google turned up this technical Power Point presentation about PHA polymers. Several frames in, it does say Target has gift cards that are made of PHA polymers and can compost, pretty readily it looks like too.

Then it gets into plants engineered to make PHA, which gets into GM seed, and I didn't want to open that can of worms.
