Created through an ancient Japanese technique, KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal (Binchotan) is a highly porous natural filter. When placed in water, it naturally adsorbs and reduces toxins, while removing E. Coli and enriching it with beneficial minerals – turning ordinary tap water into filtered water, with a delicious and more refreshing taste.
KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal…
- is easy to use
- removes toxins from tap water, such as lead, aluminium, copper, iron, chlorine, mercury and manganese
- enriches water with beneficial minerals, like magnesium and calcium
- neutralises pH and improves the taste within 15 minutes
- removes E. Coli in only 60 minutes (99 CFU/100ml)
- offers a more environmentally friendly and economical alternative to plastic water filters and bottles
- is reusable for up to three months
- is recyclable in a number of eco-friendly, versatile ways
All it takes is four simple steps to enjoy the many benefits that KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal has to offer:
Remove the KURO-Bō stick from its compostable corn starch bag and boil it in a shallow pan of tap water for 10 minutes. Then allow it to cool.
Once the KURO-Bō stick has cooled, fill your container with 2 to 3 litres of tap water. Insert the single KURO-Bō stick and wait for the natural purifying process to begin. There is no need to remove the stick at any stage, just top up your water as needed (for greater volumes of water, simply add additional KURO-Bō sticks.)
After one month of daily use, simply boil your KURO-Bō stick for 10 minutes, again allow it to cool, and reuse as before.
After two months of daily use*, reactivate your KURO-Bō stick again, allow it to cool and reuse as before. Once filtered, if your water still tastes clean and fresh, continue to reuse your KURO-Bō stick. If not, simply recycle your KURO-Bō stick in a number of innovative and environmentally friendly ways.
