The Economist: Grounds for Change
Date and Time for this Past Event
- Tuesday, Apr 16, 2019 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
The Economist, a leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs, will be bringing its consumer engagement program, “Grounds for Change,” to Rosslyn on April 16 as part of its Feeding the Future campaign. The program is based on The Economist’s report “Oil in Your Coffee,” which articulates little-known uses for used coffee grounds, including creating biodiesel fuel.
Through mid-May, an Economist-branded coffee cart will take to the streets of Washington, D.C., offering passersby a free cup of coffee in an effort to highlight innovative ways to recycle coffee grounds. Consumers who participate in the program will have the opportunity to subscribe to the publication at an introductory rate of 12 weeks for $12, and, as a special gift, can opt to have The Economist plant a tree on their behalf.
