Coffee is a part of many people's morning and probably afternoon routines. The smell of hot fresh coffee is something else in the morning, so why not make this part of your routine eco-friendly? Brewing coffee means you'll always have coffee filters in your trash, especially if you choose to grind the beans yourself. Protecting the environment is quite a challenge seeing as millions of tons of plastic end up in the oceans and landfills. You can take a little step to help the environment in your own simple way. If you love sustainability and coffee, there are various items you can switch from the plastic items you probably use to brew your coffee. Using either biodegradable or recyclable items ensures that we don't keep feeding trash into the environment.
At Peace With The Wild, you can find eco-friendly coffee accessories that you can either reuse for long or ones that biodegrade and don't end up piling in landfills. You can find compostable coffee filters made using sustainably sourced chlorine-free paper that is also unbleached and GMO-free. Even though good for the environment, these filters are made with integrity as they contain a "never break" patent wave seam that ensures the strength and integrity of the filters. The biggest concern with using bleached coffee filters is their potential to have harmful chemicals as a result of the harmful byproducts as a result of the bleaching that the coffee filter has undergone. The most harmful chemicals that result from paper bleaching are known as dioxins. Dioxins are highly toxic and harmful to the environment and human health. Dioxins aren't harmful in small amounts as the body is tolerant to these chemicals. However, when consumed in high amounts (for a long time), it harms the environment.
Instead of risking the consumption of such chemicals, you can use compostable coffee filters that aren't bleached and compost easily. You can alternatively use a reusable coffee filter made using 100% food-grade stainless steel that won't rust. This filter removes the use or need for plastic since it's plastic free and is ethically and sustainably sourced. You can use this coffee filter on your jars, cups of coffee teapots, mugs, and even glass bottles. With good care, this coffee filter can last you upto 20 years. You can even find sustainable coffee scoops that are wooden or stainless steel here. These, unlike plastic, won't leach any chemicals into your hot beverage and will last a lifetime, after which wooden scoops will decompose while the stainless steel scoop will be recycled and turned into something else.
