There are many ways to incorporate recycling and reusing into our daily routine. If you are an avid coffee drinker, you might want to think twice before getting rid of your leftover coffee grounds. 

Coffee is a source of nutrients and antioxidants, and it has antimicrobial properties. Here is a simple recipe that will make you feel and look better, save money, and help the environment!  

What you'll need:
  1. 1/2 cup fresh used ground coffee
  2. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  3. 1/2 cup coconut oil 
  4. 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • In a mid-sized bowl, pour the coffee grounds and combine them with the brown sugar.
  • Add the coconut oil and stir until all three ingredients are blended.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix it all one more time.
  • Gently rub the mixture over your face and body, avoiding the areas around the eyes. Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
