How to Compost Coffee Grounds and EcoPods

Your coffee grounds can be used to make nutrient-rich compost for your plants and garden.

Composting your coffee grounds is not only great for the environment, but it’s also an easy way to reduce waste and give back to the earth. And we’ve got some exciting news – our EcoPod, coffee pods, are 100% compostable*! This means that instead of tossing your used pods in the trash, you can simply add them to your compost bin. Take a look at this post on how to compost your EcoPods in your garden.

*Compostable in industrial facilities. Check locally, as these do not exist in many communities.

Composting is easy and a great way to give back to the earth. Here are the simple steps to get started:

  1. Choose your composting method. There are a variety of ways to compost, including using a backyard bin, worm composting, or indoor composting with a countertop bin.
  2. Get a compost bin. You can purchase one or make your own with some basic materials. Your bin should be placed in a cool, shady spot in your yard.
  3. Gather your coffee grounds. You can use the grounds from your morning brew and add your coffee pods to the compost bin. Make sure to remove any foil or plastic packaging before adding them.
  4. Add the coffee grounds to your compost. Mix the coffee grounds and EcoPods with other compostable materials, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, leaves, and grass clippings.
  5. Turn your compost regularly. This helps to speed up the decomposition process and ensures that the materials are breaking down properly.
  6. Use your compost! Once your compost is ready, you can use it to fertilize your plants and garden. Your plants will thank you for the extra nutrients!

By composting your coffee grounds and EcoPods, you’re helping to reduce waste and create a more sustainable future. Plus, your plants will be healthier and happier! So next time you make your morning cup of joe, remember to save those coffee grounds for your compost bin.
