If you've ever picked up used coffee grounds for your compost pile, I think you'll appreciate this. It is a great program for collecting and re-using coffee grounds. Maybe someone will want to try this in their own community. Hard to believe they pick up eight tons of used coffee grounds each month!

What a great idea! Is the Ground to Ground name patented or could we use it, too?

What a great program. It seems though that coffee grounds disappear quickly when put out at Starbucks. I know one Starbucks stopped doing putting out there used grounds because of bugs ( I think) This might solve the problem

Welcome, Ramona! I believe the article says they modeled their program after one of the same name in Australia, with permission.

Anna, if you look at the top of the article, there's a video. At the end of the video is a list of all the coffee shops that are participating.
