Why wouldn't Apple just confirm dissolvable green packaging?

Apple is trying to be more green in just about everything it does from product design to its packaging. It seems that the company has a new dissolvable component to its EarPod holder package. According to reports, when the packaging for the EarPod is exposed to water dissolves into a pasty mush.

The packaging doesn't fully dissolves, it leaves behind a white material that looks a lot like mashed potatoes. Apple hasn't confirmed that the biodegradable packaging dissolves in water simply pointing Mashable to a page indicating it was using a "renewable tapioca paper foam material."
