We are proud to announce that we have adopted a coffee compost program in our stores. Look for the bright green garbage can and help yourself to a bag of free coffee grounds for your compost pile or garden! (This program will be running throughout the summer) Here s a little information about coffee and composting:
Every day across America, Asia and Europe, millions of pots of coffee and tea are brewed, and the millions of pounds of wet grounds, filters and bags are thrown in the trash. The grounds from coffee are rich in many vitamins and minerals and are proven to work as an excellent, environmentally safe way in composting and gardening.
Some Gardening Tips:
-Use coffee grounds directly into the soil in flower and vegetable gardens.
-Sprinkle grounds in soil directly. Dilute with water for a gentle, fast-acting fertilizer.
-Outdoor plants: 1 part coffee to 2 parts water. Indoor plants: 1 part coffee to 4 parts water.
Have fun, Sip slowly, and be green!
