Cappuccino, espresso or long, coffee is consumed in all its forms. But the multiple properties of the marc of this hot drink still seem to be poorly understood. Discover in our slideshow below the tips for reusing these residues. Indeed, instead of throwing it away once your drink is ready, you can recycle it and transform it into beauty care or as an insecticide.
Hubency, in collaboration with Ifop, notes that 83% of French people drink coffee regularly. It is the second most consumed drink in the territory. Globally, 2.6 billion cups of coffee were enjoyed every day in 2021. However, each cup of coffee produces grounds, making it a large amount of wasted.
These important coffee residues produced with each cup represent much more waste than you might think. Indeed, coffee grounds would represent “20 million tons [of rubbish] in the world each year”, specifies the Hubency study. However, we learn that 100% of this product can be reused. Check out our slideshow below to find out how to recycle it.
Whether in its raw form or enclosed in a capsule, coffee grounds can be recovered on a large scale. Indeed, for companies, particularly in the catering and hotel sector, a collection is organized to limit this waste. A specialized company recovers the capsules, but also the raw coffee grounds to transform them into biofuels. For individuals, some brands like Nespresso offer specific bags to throw away your capsules and be sure that they are recycled.
