    Piggybacking on Andrew's Lesson Learned about the staggering amount of water that it takes to make a cup of coffee: For anyone that can't (or won't) give up coffee and wants a way to ease their enviro-guilt, I suggest adding your used coffee grounds to your garden or potting soil as fertilizer. It can improve drainage, water retention, and soil aeration!

    (PSA: as with everything, moderation is key, and if you're worried about soil acidity levels, simply rinse your coffee grounds to get them back to a neutral pH level)
