Going Green is about making small changes to lessen my impact on the planet. Something small and easy to change is the way I filter my coffee.
ECO FILTER is a gourmet coffee filter made form tightly-woven, unbleached cotton.
It can be used in the place of a paper coffee filter and needs only to be rinsed in between uses. However if you feel the need, ECO FILTER can be washed in the dish washer. ECO FILTER comes in a pack of two, so it is easy to rotate when one is being washed and dried.
ECO FILTER comes in a variety of sizes to fit most any coffee maker.
Eco Filter allows the diterpenes (found in the oil droplets) and coffee sediment to be filtered out. A Dutch study, cited in the UC Berkeley Wellness Letter March 1997, stated that if people trying to lower their blood cholesterol should not drink unfiltered European style coffee, such as that made in a French press.
So, if you would like to make great tasting, healthy, earth-friendly coffee, you should try an Eco Filter!
