Did you know that April 22 is Earth Day and that the entire month of April is thus dubbed Earth Month?
If you’re not in grade school anymore, chances are you might have forgotten about the day, but it is important to remember.
Earth Day is a good time to think about ways to better the Earth on that day, it is a good reminder of how we can eliminate waste moving forward.
A great way to cut down on waste is to stop getting your coffee at a coffee shop! You can only recycle cups meant for iced drinks and plastic straws cannot be recycled.
If you make coffee at home, instead of throwing out your leftover coffee grounds, you can toss them into your garden and it will actually be extremely beneficial!
Even if you don’t have a full-on garden, but just one small, potted plant in your apartment, this is still something you can do.
Coffee grounds actually contain essential nutrient nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, and other micronutrients. Meaning,

Simply, sprinkle a thin layer of coffee grounds on top of your soil and voila!
