Bamboo charcoal helps naturally remove impurities and improve taste to your tap water! Say goodbye to plastic water bottles and filters and switch to this eco-friendly alternative. Skinny-sized pieces are perfect for small mouth containers while the regular pieces fit into wide mouth bottles or carafes. Toss your used charcoal into the compost, garden and potted plants to reduce trash and add vital nutrients to the soil.
How to use: Rinse when you first receive them, boil for 5 minutes, and dry in sun. Add 3 pieces to one liter of tap water. Let sit for 1 hour and enjoy! Refill for 4 weeks.
Bamboo charcoal's porous surface area adsorbs tap water and airborne impurities. If carbonized at high heat, tests indicate that bamboo charcoal removes chlorine, chloride, phosphorus, ammonia, toluene (alcohol), nitrogen, chloramine, and even toxins like pesticides that can seep into tap water. Bamboo charcoal adsorbs solids and gases, but not pathogens, so we don't recommend relying on bamboo charcoal to filter creek water while hiking.
All bamboo pieces are cut by hand, so sizes may vary.
