Coffee Lovers Go Green
Have you ever thought about what to do with all those left over coffee grounds? Instead of dumping them in the garbage and sending them to overcrowded landfills, try using them to enhance your garden. Used coffee grounds are an excellent thing to compost. Easy to add directly to your garden or flower beds. Also, they can be added to an earthworm composting site. The worms really love the coffee grounds. Here at The Original Coffee Company we try to be earth friendly. We recycle when possible. We compost food scraps, coffee grounds, and garden waste. We use organic methods in gardening. We produce as much of our own food as possible. This accomplishes 2 things: we know we are eating safe foods and reduces the pollution by not needing commercial transportation to get to us. Another way to go green is by supporting .Fair Trade Organic Coffee Growers and Roasters. Check out our GREEN Page, too!
