A flower pot made of coffee grounds

Dutch flower pot manufacturer Elho developed flowerpots in various sizes made of waste coffee grounds.

The flower pots is made from 100% recycled waste, using a mix of recycled plastic and a raw resource made of coffee grounds. Each product contains at least three coffee cups of waste. The largest pot even contains more than ten cups of waste.

The pots are made in collaboration with Coffee Based, a Dutch company that makes biobased materials made from coffee grounds (find them in our collection here). The coffee grounds are still visible in the colour and texture of the pot, and you can even smell it.

    Hello. I would like to know more about your product. We have an abundance of coffee grounds available here in Canada and looking for ways to reuse it.

    Thank you.
