Free compost coffee grounds from Starbucks

(1/3) > >>

Stein:
Next time you are near one, check to see if they have any.  There are several near me that have a woven basket near the register that has silver mylar bags of used grounds labeled "Grounds for your garden."  With a big free sign.

There are some in grocery stores that I always check.

Nothing beats free!  Each bag probably has $1,000 in used coffee!

I will definitely check that out.  A lady at work uses the little bit of coffee in the bottom of the pot to water her plants (diluted of course) and it perks them right up.  I don't go into a starbucks unless I have a gift card.  Nothing like a six dollar five hundred calorie drink to start the day.

archer:
Also, as Stein mentioned, they pack the grounds in the old mylar bags the ground arrive in. Free small mylar bags to use for storage!

Stein:
Forgot to mention that the bag has a label saying you can put them straight into your garden without composting if you want to go that route.  I guess they are loaded with nitrogen and do wonders.

archer:
I compost them, put them on plants, and feed them to my composting worms.... Keeps the little wigglers crawling all night long...
