Did you know that the average American consumes about 3 cups of coffee a day? Thats a lot of used coffee grounds going into the trash.
There are actually many ways you can recycle and reuse your old coffee grounds to help preserve the environment and maintain your health.
Ive researched many sources to find the best ways to reuse old coffee grounds.
Youd be surprised at just how many different methods have worked for people:
If youre not an avid coffee drinker but you live near a coffee shop or café, you can always ask them for the old grounds. Places like Starbucks actually give bags of used grounds away to people who use them for their home and gardens.
Recycling is just one way that we can help maintain the natural beauty of our environment, so next time you drink a cup of coffee save those coffee grounds for future use!
