:: Binchotan Charcoal Water Filter - Extra Large
Binchotan Charcoal Water Filter - Extra Large
Plastic-free water purification - the way it should be. The Japanese have been using Binchotan charcoal for centuries to purify water. No need for the disposable plastic casing typically used to hold charcoal granules as the charcoal stick is a natural absorber of impurities.
One stick of the extra-large size Binchotan charcoal lasts up to four months and can filter 11 to 19 litres / 3 to 5 gallons of water per day. For maximum results, the stick should sit in the water overnight for about 12 hours.
Binchotan charcoal is a unique charcoal exclusive to the forests of Wakayama, a province in southern Japan. The branches of holm oak trees are sustainably harvested then slowly fired in traditional kiln ovens over many days. It naturally absorbs toxins such as chlorine, lead, mercury, cadmium and copper from tap water and imparts good stuff such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphates to water.
Care and use: It is recommended that the stick be boiled in a shallow pan of water for 10 minutes every month or so to keep the exterior pores open.
After four months, boil the charcoal stick again. If you donít see a profusion of bubbles circulating around the charcoal stick when it is returned to the pitcher and water is added, the stick has reached its capacity to absorb toxins. At that point it is ready to be composted in the garden or used as an odor absorber in the fridge.
Packaged in a compostable cellulose bag.
