Since these filters are a set of two, they're extremely cost effective compared to a box of 100 disposable filters, which I usually find for $10-12. However, the second I started using this filter, I wondered why this product exists... I already composted my disposable filters, so this product makes me do the same thing but in a more difficult way. I still have to compost the grounds, but instead of just picking up the paper filter filled with wet grounds and plopping it into the compost bucket, now I have to take a still-hot cloth filter (because the coffee stains set in the longer you let it sit, I figured out), gingerly turn it inside out over the compost bin so I don't fling grounds everywhere, try to shake some out, and then use a dull knife to scrape the wet grounds out of the filter. It's impossible to get all the wet grounds off the filter, so some inevitably do go down the drain when I rinse the filter off. Almost every day coffee grounds end up on the floor or the counter, no matter how carefully I do this.
Bottom line: If I use this set of 2 filters for a couple years, I'll have undoubtedly saved money. But at this point, I don't think the mess and hassle of these are worth it compared to spending $12 a couple times a year.
I have tried using tshirts, linen cloths and a cotton produce bag in an effort to purchase less. However, that deterred me in making my own milks at home. This is such a useful tool. It cuts down so much time and is relatively easy to clean (boil for 10 mins after use and dry completely). The ring that slides in helps to squeeze further any liquid out. I also purchased the wide mason jar funnel and together it makes it so much easier to do.
Decided I wanted to start making my own oat milk so I bought this filter to help me achieve that. Worked great! I ended up straining my oat milk twice for extra smoothness, and the filter rinsed out very easily between uses!
This handy little bag is the best to make any sort of non-diary milk at home! Great design, easy to use, and strains all the pulp beautifully. Once you start making your own milk, you’ll never be running to the store last minute again. So delicious - and this bag will encourage you along in the process.
I've used other mesh strainers but this one worked way better! I strained the milk again with a a wire strainer just in case but I didn't need to, it did a snazzy job the first time around. I also really loved the tapered design of the bag which made the process of squeezing it easy and relatively mess free.
This has revolutionized our hemp milk making. Gone are the days when we had chunky hemp milk in our coffee! Easy to use and wash. Highly recommend it for homemade non-dairy milks.
I got this as a gift for my mom (the drip #2) as she is a coffee fanatic and she loves them! The thing that she loves the most about them is how easy they are to clean: just rinse with water and air dry, reuse a few times until a run through the laundry is needed. I highly recommend it for any coffee lovers out there.
I was primarily looking for a sustainable replacement for single-use coffee filters. When I purchased, the #2 filters were out of stock (I make my coffee with a single-use pour over dripper, which calls for a #2 filter) BUT I purchased the #4 option and it still fits and works perfectly fine! My coffee filters through this coffee sock more quickly than my paper filters (leading to more watered down coffee), but I simply need to figure out how to adjust my coffee grind.
Easy to clear -- I dump my used coffee grinds into the compost, rinse this coffee sock, and let it dry out overnight. Would recommend!
Great drawstring bags, perfect for anything really. I’ve already used one to take my lunch to work. They are incredibly lightweight and transparent, but at the same time very durable. If you’re looking for a new set of versatile bags, I recommend these!
HUGE fan of these. The scale tare weight is provided and it keeps you from grabbing those plastic produce bags. I keep my reusable produce bags in side my large reusable bags so I always remember them.
Love these cute mini bamboo spoons! Plus, they're so reasonably priced. They're perfect for scooping spices, coffee grounds or even mixing salad dressing.
Easy, plastic-free bulk hand soap for refilling bottles. Lathers well, and the bergamot scent is lovely!
I absolutely love the ability to fill up my handsoap dispensers right at Eco Collective in non-Covid19 times . . . but just as easy was purchasing this same soap in a returnable glass jar (deposit to be refunded) and filling up dispensers at all the sinks around my house. Wonderful! And great quality soap as well!
I wish I had bought these years ago. These are perfect for decanting basically anything but it works great for liquid soap and cleaning supplies. These are very sturdy and not cheap.
So useful - I don't know how we managed without it! Love that you can twist off the bottom part and use them separately as well.
I bought this funnel to use to feed my sourdough starter without getting flour all over the counter. It works perfectly and it doubles as a funnel for all typical liquid use with the spout attached. I love multiple use tools that will last and this is definitely one of those! Shipping was quick and packaging was great!
I love this funnel so much, this being 2 funnels in one makes the utilitarian and minimalist in me so happy. It's super sleek and can act as a cute, functional decoration when hung by the handle, it's also super easy to clean. I would recommend to everyone!
This product is made with quality. It fits perfectly in a mason jar as well as several other containers and it is so easy to clean. I love it!
This planner is perfectly compact, but has all the features I need, for month & day views. I love that it's open dated, as I previously had a 16-month planner, and then a 3 month planner. This made starting a new planner mid-year attainable. The design is great, and I love that it is made from recycled materials, and packed and shipped in an eco-friendly manner.
So cute! i got the mushroom one and it’s so wonderful! love that you get to fill in the months and days <3
I love everything about my butterfly planner. Really good quality, the cover is thick but still malleable which I really like. Best part is you can buy it whenever!
