What to Do With Leftover Coffee Grounds

CHOW Video Producer Meredith Arthur says that used coffee grounds should never go straight into the trash. Compost, maybe. Better yet, use them to help your plants thrive and your skin remain youthful. We’ve got more green tips, and though they won’t all make your skin shine brightly, they will put a little ecofriendly spring in your step. Learn how to extend the use of scallions, veggie scraps, and a chicken carcass. Plus, how to do your dishes and clean your counters the environmental way.

CHOW Tips are the shared wisdom of our community. If you’ve figured out some piece of food, drink, or cooking wisdom that you’d like to share on video (and you can be in San Francisco), email Meredith Arthur and tell us what you’ve got in mind.
