BINCHOTAN CHARCOAL - Natural Water & Air Purifier

$8.99

Hydration is essential to health and beauty. Our little secret to great tasting water is Binchō-tan, an activated charcoal fired from Japanese oak. Oak branches are carefully selected and heated at high temperatures over days to form a dark, dense and highly-porous filter of water and air. The heating process leaves the charcoal with a look and feel reminiscent of glass that makes it pleasing to the eye even as it filters. This is a natural product; variations in size and shape may occur. 

ENJOY BETTER TASTING WATER

  • Binchotan imparts minerals and alkaline properties to water.
  • In 3+ hours in a pitcher or carafe, water is crisp and ready for drinking.
  • Each stick filters water for 4 to 6 months depending on volume of water purified.
  • Binchotan is an effective and low-carbon option to better tasting water for your family and pets without the negative effects of BPAs or added waste.

IMPROVE AIR QUALITY

  • Purifies air by absorbing negative ions, excess air moisture and off odors.
  • Suitable for use in fridge, closets, shoe storage areas, pet areas and any place where the control of smell and moisture need a boost.

Recommended Usage
4" Binchotan stick: 16 oz. container or smaller

6" Binchotan stick: 24 oz. container or smaller

Directions
Rinse stick, boil for 10 minutes, and allow to dry thoroughly before first use. Once dry, place in container of water. We recommend a vessel made of glass or ceramic. For best results, allow charcoal to purify water for at least 3 hours before drinking. 

Recharge + Replace
Boil for 10 minutes every 2 weeks to keep charcoal's water-purifying qualities active. Once the stick stops releasing air bubbles during the boiling/reactivating process, it's time to replace.  

Place in a sunny spot for a day to keep charcoal's air-purifying qualities active. We recommend replacing the charcoal after one year of dry use.

Disposal
Break up and sprinkle in the garden or in the soil of potted plants. The carbon-rich nature of Binchotan acts as compost and imparts fertilizing qualities to soil.
