Planet Smoothie is a maker and retailer of those lovely cold fruit things called smoothies (obviously). They currently use recycled polystyrene cups and containers when giving you gour smoothie in order to keep it cold. However, they’re not happy about it!
They want a solution to what cup to use, so they have asked the public for help. For the individual who comes up with the smartest way to “re-use it or lose it,” Planet Smoothie will reward them with $5,000 and free smoothies for a year.
If you have a great idea and want to enter go here or read more details here. Unfortunately it is only open to US residents and you have to be over 18. And smart 🙂 Closing isn’t until September 2008, so get your thinking caps on.
