Coffee grounds into furniture?

I feel like almost anything can be made of coffee grounds these days. They are super useful (and not just in your garden or your coffee-fueled car)…this time for furniture!

A company named Çurface in the UK has been working and came up with coffee grounds as a fertilizer, slug barrier, furniture, and sheeting. The material is made from 99% recycled materials: recycled coffee ground waste snagged from offices, cafes and factories across the UK, and post-consumer plastic waste. Don’t worry though…the source materials are all cleaned and sterilized before being mixed and turned into sheeting!

Their commercial launch was at Ecobuild in March…

In the near future, Çurface is going to Milan where they will be working on a coffee shop installation.
