In Krakow, Poland’s second largest city, coffee grounds are being put on walks at Planty Park near Wajda Square and at Park Lotników Polskich (Polish Aviator Park). Paths treated with the grounds will be marked differently from those with sand, so pedestrians have a choice.

The pilot program generated applications from more than 50 local coffee shops through a coffee grounds volunteering and collection program that was modeled after coffee waste recycling programs in Scandinavia. A similar pilot program in the Ukranian city of Lviv was also successful.
