Coffee today, better gardens tomorrow

Long after customers at Glas Coffeehouse in Sturgeon Bay down their latte or house blend, the coffee grounds and other organic wastes will be helping flowers and vegetables grow better.  Glas, which means green in Gaelic, composts all coffee, tea and other organic leftovers behind its shop on East Maple Street.  General Manager Ryan Shaw says the 55-gallon trash can used for composting fills up and empties on a regular basis.

Shaw says the bottom line for Glas Coffeehouse is local gardens are thriving from composted coffee grounds and other organic materials that are not going into landfills.
