I will not buy or use paper coffee filters because they are single use and create daily waste. I will choose to reuse and go zero waste by buying and using a reusable metal or cloth coffee filter.
Food scrap recyclers generally do not accept paper coffee filters, especially if they’re bleached, so they have to be thrown out.
Paper coffee filters are also more expensive than a reusable filter, so you’ll save money over the long run when you choose to reuse.
