Plastic free coffee coming right up!
Billions of paper coffee filters are used and thrown away every year. I can't even picture what that looks like! Although they are paper, they can't be recycled because they have been contaminated with the coffee... so it's straight to landfill they go.

Instructions for use:
Place the filter and stand on top of your jug, carafe, mug,tea cup...whatever you want to use!
Place ground coffee directly into the filter.
Pour over hot water and let it drip through into the container below.
Two or three tablespoons of coffee makes 1-3 cups, depending on the strength you like it!
Once used, you can empty your coffee (why not use it to fertilise your garden, or make a coffee scrub out of the waste?) and wash your filter by hand or in the dishwasher.
Product care & end of life:
1) Please wash it immediately after using it.
2) For a deeper clean, add baking soda to warm water and soap for one hour. Or soak in vinegar and lemonade for a few hours.
3) Do not scrape with hard objects, it will damage the filter.
This coffee filter should hopefully last many decades. When it does come to it’s end of life, simply put it in your metal recycling.
