While you’re enjoying your morning coffee, don’t stop there! Enjoy the rest of it in the garden…the used coffee grounds that is. By using coffee grounds in the garden, you’re not only giving your garden better nutrients, you’re also giving back to the earth.
I’ve been using coffee grounds in the garden for quite some time now with much luck. Not only for the valuable reasons below but also to help give back to the earth. Coffee grounds can help with plant growth and can provide many nutrients to the garden. It’s also the best earth-friendly thing to do with leftover coffee grounds. Wouldn’t you say? I love it when I see companies, such as Starbucks giving back to help coffee farmers deal with the wide-spread problem of coffee rust in Central America.
I tend to shop for products from companies that are committed to giving back to help save our earth, so when I want a good cup of coffee from a company that thinks the same as me, I reach forStarbucks® Pike Place® Roast every time!
10 Reasons to Use Coffee Grounds in the Garden
- Adds in extra nutrients to enrich the soil
- Improves soil naturally
- A thin layer of mulch around plants can help keep weeds out
- Keeps ants, slugs, and snails out of the garden – Cats too (they don’t like digging in coffee grounds)
- Worms LOVE to make tunnels through coffee grounds, which aids aeration because plants need air.
- Save money by not having to buy garden fertilizers; spend more money on Starbucks® Pike Place® Roast!
- Reuse to help give back to the earth
- Coffee grounds are considered “green” which your compost needs to stay balanced from the “browns”
- Known to help rid fungus that may come from other sources
- Coffee grounds just smell good!!
So, the next time you finish your morning coffee, think about tossing those used coffee grounds in the garden instead of the trash. Heck, even the leftover coffee liquid is good too!! Giving back to the earth is a major deal in my family. We do all that we can to recycle and reuse just as our friends at Starbucks are doing with their Starbucks One Tree for One Bag campaign.
Starbucks® One Tree for One Bag Campaign
I think it’s awesome that Starbucks is donating $0.70 to Conservation International for every bag of coffee sold at participating Albertsons and Safeway stores this month. I love their commitment to this cause.
For every bag of Starbucks® 10-12z & 20z Ground or Whole Bean coffee purchased at participating Albertsons Company stores in the U.S. from May 1st through May 28, Starbucks provides one disease-resistant coffee tree to a farmer in Mexico, Guatemala or El Salvador by donating 70¢ – the average cost of a tree – to Conservation International to foster thriving coffee communities. To learn more, visit conservation.org/onetree.
