Specification:

1 binchotan active charcoal filters (6 months life)
Vacuum foil packed individually
Pre-washed and ready to use
Fits any* bottle (*minimum spout opening 30m)
Charcoal is made from natural wood sticks and dimensions vary (15 to 28mm diameter, maximum length 118mm)

It was during the Edo Period (17th century) that a man called Binchuya Chozaemon made it popular, but the origins are not completely clear. A form of Binchotan charcoal (sometimes referred to as 'white charcoal') is thought to have been introduced to Japan by a Japanese monk and scholar called Kukai 1,200 years ago. This ancient process for making Binchotan charcoal is very interesting, and also intense. The wood needs to be raised to very high temperatures in a kiln, and then rapidly cooled by being covered in a mixture of soil, sand and ash. This gives the charcoal it’s very hard and smooth appearance, and if you tap it, you’ll hear a clear, metallic sound.

Not only does Binchotan charcoal remove impurities from water, it can also release minerals back into your bottle, improving health and taste. The surface of the charcoal is full of tiny holes, which draw in contaminants like chlorine and bind them, away from the water you drink. There’s so many holes in Binchotan charcoal that the surface area of just 1 gram is 500mᒾ.

It will filter about 1.1L of water for 3 months if used every day. If you’ve got a larger container or jug you want to filter, just increase the number of charcoal sticks accordingly. Afterwards, you can just boil it for 10 minutes to ‘recharge’ the charcoal, and then use it for another 3 months.

One of the wonderful things about this special charcoal is that it has so many great secondary uses. It can remove the moisture from the air in your wardrobe, helping your clothes avoid becoming mouldy, it also absorbs bad smells, so it is great to use in a cat litter or nappy bin. It even adds nutrients to the soil of houseplants if you break it up and add to the pot.

If you want to use your Binchotan charcoal water filter, you CANNOT add anything else to the carafe or bottle.

It's not dangerous to swallow charcoal. Active charcoal actually has many medical uses such as being used to treat flatulence, high cholesterol and upset stomachs.

When washing your bottle, carafe or other vessel with soap, make sure you remove the charcoal stick first.
