"You change the world one sock at a time.
Didn't discard or soil the seas.
Kept the trees, fed the bees.
Making caffeine, not chlorine.
Brewing it rich, without a hitch.
You're a SockStar!
Why not paper filters?
2.25 Billion Cups Of Coffee Are Consumed Globally Every Day. Assuming That At Least 1/3 Of Those Cups Are Currently Made With Paper Filters In 8 Cup Batches, 750 Million Paper Filters Are Being Made And Discarded, Each And Every Day. 275 Billion Per Year. It Takes The Equivalent Of 1.5 Million Trees To Make That Many Filters Annually. In One Year The Volume Of Trash Created By The Filters Only (Not Accounting For The Grounds) Is Enough To Fill 128 Buildings The Size Of The Louvre To A Height Of 10 Feet. Each CoffeeSock® Filter Replaces 4- 12 Boxes Of Paper Filters Per Year, Plus Your Coffee Tastes Better.
All Of Our Filters Out-Perform Any Comparable Disposable And Reusable Filters.
Cotton Absorbs Some Of The Oils Released From Coffee Beans Yet Lets Acids Pass Through. The Resulting Cup Is Clear Crisp, Rich And Robust With All The Acid Of Paper Brewed Coffee, Without The Paper Taste, And All Of The Richness Of French Press Without The Heavy Oiliness.
CoffeeSock® Filters Are Made With Certified Organic Cotton.
Cotton Imparts No Flavor On The Finished Brew Unlike Paper.
Cotton Is 90% Cellulose, Which Is A Tasteless And Odorless Compound That Is Insoluable In Water. Wood Is 40-50% While Hemp Is Approximately 45% Cellulose.
Why organic cotton?

2.25 Billion Cups Of Coffee Are Consumed Per Day Globally.
That Could Equate To Over 140 Million Filters If Only Half Of Those Cups Came From 8 Cup Brews Using A Filter.
Each CS Filter Purchased Keeps At Least 365 Filters Per Year Out Of The Landfills. That Is 4-12 Cases Per Year.
If 1/3 Of The 2.25 Billion Cups Of Coffee Consumed Globally Per Day Were Made With Paper Filters In 8 Cup Batches
That Will Equate To 1.5 Million Trees Or 433,000 Cubic Yds Of Trash. 433,000 Cubic Yd Of Trash Is A 227 Ft Cube (Over A Cubic Acre) Or The Equivalent To A 257 Million Square Foot Building Filled With Trash, Or The Contents Of 128 Buildings The Size Of The Louvre.
