Donate used coffee grounds

I was standing there waiting for my order the other day as one of the employees was brewing new coffee in all of the self serve big coffeemakers. As I watched him empty the used grounds into the trash time after time, an idea came to mind.


Starbucks has a bucket by the door where they have sealed bags of used coffee grounds customers can take. They are great to add to gardens, landscape area soil etc.


Why not bag the used Sheetz grounds and offer them to interested customers? It would be a matter of dumping the grounds in a sealable bag instead of the trash and having a designated area where customers can see and take the bags if interested. Since the spring/summer is coming up, perfect timing....
