Treehugger has an extended post on Sony's use of corn base plastics in its products such as the Walkman. In a 2004 announcement, Sony said that they planned to use the new material for the manufacture of front panels for electronic goods.

From cultivation to disposal, the corn based plastic are said to emit 20% less of the greenhouse gas per volume than conventional petroleum-based plastics. Treehugger also points to other brands such as Versace, McDonalds and Del Monte. Hurrah!
