Used coffee grounds contain many essential trace elements that act as a highly successful and natural fertiliser. These free, used Costa coffee grounds are available now from all stores nationwide.
Other unused grounds will continue to be collected by waste specialist Biogen, which converts the grounds to bio-gas that’s used to power some of Costa’s eco-friendly duel fuel vehicles.
‘We are constantly looking for new ways to improve our environmental footprint, whether it be recycling our coffee bean sacks to use as carpet underlay or building our first ever eco store.
‘We are committed to constant improvement in this area and it just so happens that in this instance it can also improve our customers’ gardens.’
Kerry Parkin, Head of CSR at Costa
