Enjoyed those coffee pods? Instead of putting them directly into the bin, stop. The life cycle of your coffee pods doesn’t end when you finish sipping your cup of joe. You can reuse them in new and innovative ways to help reduce your carbon footprint. And although you can always take them to general waste facilities, these facilities are not equipped to break down the pods effectively, which is why you need to ensure you can do the recycling yourself!
Here are creative ways you can recycle used coffee pods:
Make a Bath Bomb
Taking a bath is one of the relaxing things you can do at home. Make use of the used coffee pod by adding the bath bomb ingredients inside it and let them set overnight. Make sure to remove its filter. The next day, remove the mix from the pod, and you’re set to enjoy that rejuvenating bath.
You can make frozen treats with used coffee pods. You can put coffee in the pods and freeze them, or you can also put juice inside the pods with a popsicle stick and make popsicles for the family. Another great idea is to put chopped herbs and butter in the pods and use them the next time you cook.
Let Your Kids Use Them
Instead of buying new toys for your kids, give them the used coffee pods. They will be able to make something out of them. With that, it will also encourage your kids to unleash their creative side.
Make String Lights
String lights have become a trend these days because of how they can transform a space quickly. Cut a hole in the bottom of the coffee pods and string the lights through them. You can also make cool decorations out of the pods as you see fit.
Use Them as Seed Starters
If you have a garden and want to grow new plants, you can use your used coffee pods as seed starters. All you need to do is add a base layer of garden soil into the cup and add the seeds of your choice. Top the cup off with more soil and plant it. Make sure you water it regularly and that it receives adequate sunlight every day.
Keep Your Space Organized
Look around your desk or your workspace and you’ll likely see a lot of areas cluttered with miscellaneous supplies. You can use the coffee pods as small item holders like for push pins or tacks. They can also store items for arts and crafts like beads, buttons, and many more.
Use Them in the Kitchen
Used coffee pods may be used in the kitchen. Add condiments in it, such as mustard or ketchup, so when you serve food, you have a cup that is enough for a meal. This will help reduce waste, too!
Recycle Those Coffee Pods
Don’t throw away your coffee pods; instead, recycle them yourself. These ideas are excellent to help you make the most out of the pods. At the same time, you also help reduce pollution. Through recycling, you get to help contribute to saving the environment, especially at a time like this when the adverse effects of climate change are greatly felt all over the world.
