Microsoft Using Corn Cups

In Environmental, New Products by Chuck

One of the latest companies to make use of a corn product to be more “green” is Microsoft. They’re using cups made from corn on their Fargo, ND campus and according to the video version of the story it looks like the cups are actually green.

The story is posted on WDAY, Fargo, ND.

These utensils just melt away in the sun. The plates and bowls derived from sugarcane, paper cups from corn, the cutlery is from potatoes.

These are not recycled; they are composted like grass clippings. The garbage bags even melt away.

You can watch the video of the story with this link. The story says Microsoft goes through 24 million cups a year. Sounds like a smart move for the environment!
