Mobile computing accessories company Mobile Edge has come out with laptop carrying cases that are made with something called Sorona from DuPont. This is a polymer made partially from corn stalks.

The material supposedly requires 30 percent less energy to produce than comparable materials, such as Nylon or Polyester.

The product line, known as ScanFast, also has the added bonus of complying with the TSA's design requirements for unobstructed scanning. Which means you don't have to struggle with taking your computer out of the case. At least that's the theory. Each of the pictured bags is priced just shy of $100 (technically speaking, each is $99.99).
