Today at One Million Cups at The Stage at Island Park, Spotlight Media representatives laid out over 200 copies of the latest Fargo Monthly on the seats for attendees. One Million Cups is an Emerging Prairie event that allows local entrepreneurs to present their startup to a large group of innovators. This event happens every Wednesday from 9am to 10 am at venues around the country.
This week One Million Cups Fargo explored the startup c2renew, which has created a coffee cup made out of used coffee beans. The group specializes in finding alternatives to petroleum-based plastics. They use biocomposite materials in order to create a green alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastic, as well as avoiding the unstable oil market. C2renew is based out of Colfax, North Dakota.
