free coffee grounds for compost!…

i stopped in starbucks today, and i noticed a big pile of large, sealed silver bags...from across the room, i saw a sign that said "free" [which caught my eye because starbucks is generally pretty pricey, hehe]...i when i got up closer to the counter, i saw that the sign went on to explain "free coffee grounds for your garden!" i didn't take a bag, because i wasn't sure how one might use coffee grounds in their garden...then i came home and googled, and found that coffee grounds are good in compost! duh, i should have thought of that! this article explains that you can request complementary coffee grounds at any starbucks as part of their grass roots recycling program! just thought i'd pass the info on...so keep any eye out for bagged grounds, or just ask the barista if they have any!
