We are creating a second life for        coffee grounds

6 million tons of spent coffee grounds end up in landfill every year, where they release 1.2 million tons of carbon. 

Instead of being harnessed for their natural properties, they harm our planet.

Our mission is to unlock the value of spent coffee grounds, and transform them from waste to resource. Through extending the lifetime value of coffee grounds and returning them into the ecosystem, we are moving one step closer to a circular economy.
