Binchotan Charcoal Water Filter for Pitcher - Large

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 large size Binchotan charcoal for pitcher lasts up to six months, purifying up to 2 litres / 0.5 gallons of water per day.

Just let the stick sit in the water overnight for best results. Binchotan charcoal is a unique charcoal exclusive to the forests of Wakayama, a province in southern Japan. 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 and make it last longer. Additional Information: Please note that exact dimensions are not available for the binchotan charcoal filters because each one is hand cut and the diameters and lengths vary quite a bit in size.

We make a conscious effort to avoid toxic industrial cleaners (i.e. window cleaners, dishwashing soap, laundry detergent) and cleaning equipment that is detrimental to the environment and our health (i.e. synthetic sponges, disposable mopping pads).

Iets wat nog goed is doe je niet weg…
