On the news today, they were talking about some of the cooling centres open in the city. They are giving out water, drinks, etc. The water is in small cups (they looked like clear plastic) and the reporter said they are bio-degradable -- made of corn.

Yes...there are more and more biodegradable (corny) products being produced every day. The only good thing about them is that they are easier to avoid than the corny stuff being put into/onto our food. Here is a site that lists/shows some of the corny plastics that are out there now:

It's nice that they proudly proclaim made from corn on the cups! :)
Makes it easier to avoid.

I don't know that it actually says it on the cup. Only that the reporter was saying that it was made of corn.

The website linked, showed some cups which proudly stated, "Made from Corn". Yeah, not everything would state it...too bad.
