My mission is to make life simple. Buy less, use less, throw less away. Every morning, my husband and I (whoever gets up first) would use a paper coffee filter. Yes, it’s not much in the way of waste, but it is a piece of the larger puzzle.
When we ran out of paper coffee filters, I knew I would be replacing it with a reusable one.
So here are the details:
Where did I get it? the grocery store
How much did it cost? $2.50. That is ALL. Not expensive saying I don’t have to worry about running out of coffee filters and I don’t have to buy them again. I was happily surprised at the low price.
Is it easy to use? Incredibly easy. I dump the old grounds into our compost container (which I then put on our blueberries and strawberries as those plants like acidity). Then, I rinse it out and it is ready to go. I would say it takes about 15 more seconds of work than our old method. And once a week, I give it a good scrub down with hot soapy water ( this will take 2 minutes, maybe)
All in all, I am very happy with our reusable coffee filter and would recommend it to friends and family. It’s simple and that’s our goal!!
