Plastics-free packaging: both good and bad

I’m a big fan of cutting waste and reducing the amount of garbage in the world, especially unrecycled and unrecyclable plastic, but recent moves in Europe to replace plastic food packaging with biodegradable alternatives have got me scared. Chances are that a lot of that packaging is made from corn. Since I’ve already had one borderline anaphylactic reaction to a paper plate made from corn, the idea of not being able to find anything stores or public places that I can eat is worrisome.
