New compostable container

I received a letter from Kraft Canada with a sample of a new gum container made of "tapioca starch and bamboo fibers". They are calling an "earth pack" and it will be appearing in the marketplace in April. It is claimed it is compatible with BYC and they are asking if it is compatible with my composting facility so I will be adding it to a tumbler tomorrow. I'm really intrigued with this to see how fast it will break down.

Let us know. I never bother to compost those. I just put them in the city wide compost.
