I LOVE Starbucks and I LOVE some of their green initiatives including the very popular Grounds for Your Garden. Starbucks customers can get complimentary five-pound (2.27-kilogram) bags of used coffee grounds to enrich garden soil. As it’s time to start thinking of planting and gardening, this is an awesome way to help your garden, the environment and your wallet.
They are nitrogen rich and can really help soil. Here’s what you can do with them:
- Add to compost piles.
- Mix with soil or sprinkle around flowers and plants for growth.
- Use about half a pound of wet grounds in a five gallon bucket of water and use as a fertilizer.
