Reused Brew

Finding new ways to repurpose coffee grinds

Implications - Ground coffee doesn't just brew a cup of java; it can be reused for a variety of purposes, something many green-minded consumers and designers are recognizing. In addition to making a wonderful fertilizer, coffee grinds can be reused to make furniture, air freshener and even sportswear! Coffee is a cultural beverage in many countries -- in the United States alone, the average person drinks about three cups of coffee per day, according to Coffee Marvel -- and with more people concerned about the environment, repurposing coffee grounds offers a sustainable practice in which both consumers and brands can participate.
