Hi @CurlyBee,

Thanks for your feedback on this! 

Dyson purifier filters aren’t washable because they capture the unwanted particulates and gases from the air, and we don’t want to let these escape. As a consumable part, our engineers strive to ensure they have the longest life possible. Glass HEPA media is used, which typically has a longer lifespan than other filter media, to make sure it needs to be replaced as infrequently as possible. In most regions, based on 12-hour usage per day, a purifier would need a new filter as little as every 12 months.

Additionally, recycled material is used in the Dyson Purifier Cool™ Formaldehyde machine, made from 21.5% recycled plastic by weight. And our latest purifier filters contain 85% recycled plastic in the filter frame, resulting in a reduction of virgin plastic.

Very disappointed that we have to buy expensive, non-washable filters for these things.  I loved it until I got a filter error and found out that I had to replace it with something that’s just going to sit in a landfill.  Do better, Dyson.

Won’t start from my iPhone? … otherwise has been a great asset
