Brew & Renew
Your morning cup of coffee can be more than a great way to start your day – it can wake up your garden, too. Using coffee as compost and mulch adds nitrogen to the soil – an important nutrient for plants including tomatoes, roses and blueberries.
Now composting your coffee is easier and more convenient than ever, with 100% certified compostable single-serve coffee pods. Your garden will be greener – and so will the planet.
Grounds Are The New Green
It may sound counter-intuitive, but in terms of composting, coffee grounds are considered “green” matter, while leaves, twigs, and compostable coffee filters are considered “brown” matter. Combining the nitrogen-rich green and carbon-rich brown material helps speed the composting process, producing richer fertilizer in less time.
Coffee compost has
high levels of nitrogen,
which is particularly
good for tomatoes
Coffee compost also produces other essential minerals such as potassium and phosphorus
Coffee improves the texture and fertility of soil by attracting earthworms
Coffee creates a naturally acidic environment, boosting the growth of acid-loving plants like blueberries and roses
Good for Your Garden, Great for Our Planet
Sure, it’ll help your tomatoes grow big and juicy. But composting also helps the environment by returning essential nutrients to the earth and reducing food waste in landfills. Do your part! Learn more using the resources listed below:
