betacup - $10,000 prize for innovative ideas for coffee cup waste reduction Answered
58 billion paper coffee cups are thrown away, unrecycled, each year. The betacup challenge is an effort to reduce this waste.
betacup are inviting people to submit ideas but also to comment and rate others’ ideas, and engage in discussions with other betacup community members and contest jurors.
Thought I'd post this as there are a lot of smart thinking, clever, innovative people here at instructables. Hopefully one of us (or several?) can come up with something positive.
A different contest format (hint: we’re encouraging collaboration)
The betacup differs from most contest formats, because it is open. We are using jovoto, so when you submit an idea, your ideas are open to the public for comment and ratings.
