Starbucks giving away used coffee grounds for free

12 years ago

Hi everyone,

I have seen a few threads discussing used coffee grounds to deter slugs. Some folks have mentioned they do not drink enough coffee to do this. As one of probably 20 adults in the US who does not drink coffee at all I am in the same boat.

Lucky for us Starbucks has a program called Grounds to Gardens where they package up their used coffee grounds and give them away for free. They are very nice sized bags. They usually sit them in a basket in front of the counter so you do not need to wait in line to get them. Not all locations participate (the one in the my local Target did not) so you might want to call ahead if you are making a special trip.
