Coffee. It’s the first drink that kick-starts each day for many readers and there are certainly ways to ensure that the coffee you drink has been produced in a sustainable manner. But what about the by-product of your coffee? Is it possible to make constructive use of the coffee grounds?
Here are some effective ways to give your coffee grounds a second life.
- Drink coffee out of a 3-D printed coffee cup made of coffee
- Turn them into various beauty products such as an exfoliating facial scrub and mask, cellulite scrub, healthy hair treatment or soap. Consider how you may adapt these products for your guests if you are a hotelier
- Use as a deodoriser. Instructions here
- Use them to clean greasy pots and pans in the kitchen
Finally, always use a separate bin for your coffee grounds. They make a wonderful fertiliser, help earthworms to live longer and also act as an effective deterrent against garden pests.
