Replacement Filter Set (2 Filters)
The FoodCycler uses a patented ternary complex actor filter to eliminate any odors that would occur from the natural composting process. The filters are expected to last approximately 3 months depending on frequency of use and the types of organic materials that are being processed.

Does not win from a recycling and carbon footprint perspective
I love me food recycler. I do not live the fact that the replacement filters are made of plastic, wrapped in plastic, and then are not recyclable. I feel strongly this company has an opportunity to actually improve its market share by either changing the filters to be biodegradable or recyclable or by providing a return service for consumers to send their used filter back where the company can recharge it and actually save on plastics while decreasing the amount of new plastics being made. As a customer I would happily return them if this program existed. Perhaps with a small discount to those who do it to help balance the postage. You could include a postage paid envelope to return them and that would be sufficient. I personally would do it regardless. It is the main reason I delay in purchasing more filters and run the unit much longer before doing so. I would swap them out (and therefore you would have more revenue) if it was either recyclable or returnable. As a first step I would suggest you poll your users to see the level of interest. I do not think I would be the only one - I think most of us would be just as concerned. If you are actually interested in feedback that is. Feel free to contact me for further thoughts - I have given this a fair amount of consideration.
They are very effective at contrilling the odor from the composter. Love this composter and the filters..
Great products, fast shipping. Would like to see them be recycled or returned to refill. Just a thought.
Easy replacements, quick delivery.
Follow the simple instructions in the guide, easy peasy. I'm composting again within minutes. I would suggest ordering 2 sets at a time, that way you don't have to wait several days (between ordering online & delivery), to compost.
It was good. But when we use the cycles lately there is an odor. We just changed the filter less than a month ago.
