Cornhusk Angel Ornaments

Earth Friendly Winter Snow
"This is our new "earth friendly" artificial snow. It will last for years when used for indoor snow displays, but it completely breaks down within one year of being exposed to weather and dirt, unlike plastic snow which lasts for hundreds of years in a landfill. It does not biodegrade nearly as quickly as the instanty biodegradable snow listed at the top of this page. Very economical and will work very well in any winter time or Christmas time display. Safe for indoor or outdoor use, and non-toxic. Made from a corn starch-based product that is not harmful to animals or humans."
"Currently, the most popular additive is Snomax, a freeze-dried protein powder sold by York Snow, Victor, N.Y. Snomax is derived from Pseudomonas syringae, a common bacterium found on grasses, trees, and vegetable crops. In the 1970s, plant pathologists studying the frost sensitivity of corn plants at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, discovered that the bacteria were responsible for initializing ice crystallization"
