This handwoven coffee filter is perfect for the eco-conscious coffee lovers
by Angelique Borja

It’s something Mother Nature will thank you for!

In the strive to lessen the production of too much waste from our everyday routine, another eco-friendly product was born to adhere to this cause and to help an Indigenous community.

The EcoPotato Shop, an online shop based in Davao City, is selling this ingenious reusable coffee and tea filters handwoven by Tagakolu weavers in Malita, Davao Occidental.

“This reusable coffee/tea filter is made from tunkayan, a variety of bamboo that grows wild along the riverside and headwaters (kolu) of Malita, Davao Occidental,” according to shop owner Dom Simon-King.

“A friend who works with the MALITA Tagakolu Mission (MATAMIS) introduced this handwoven coffee filter to me and we offered to help in marketing it. Our partner, the Tagakolu community, has been planning to sell this since last year so they can raise funds for their IP schools and provide sustainable livelihood to their basket weavers,” Dom added.

How to Reuse

To wash the reusable coffee filter, use a mild dishwashing liquid to clean it after every use and it needs to be air dried before storing. To maintain its good condition, soak it in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes at least once a week, and then air dry.

The MATAMIS coffee/tea filter is available at The EcoPotato Shop’s Facebook page priced at PHP499 each.
