Kishu Binchotan charcoal water filter
Kishu Binchotan charcoal water filter is a stick of premium activated White Charcoal made from hard Japanese Holm oak. This precious variety of charcoal has been made by artisans in the Kishu province of Japan’s Wakayama region for centuries.
By adding this stick of White Charcoal in a bottle of tap water, you will create a natural filtering process similar to that of spring water travelling through layers of rock and soil from its underground source to the surface of the earth. The water will be naturally softened, ionized and freed of up to 75% chlorine, while being enriched with minerals, such as potassium and magnesium. Use it daily to turn ordinary tap water into your daily supply of filtered, fresh and tasty mineral water while minimising your overall impact on the environment: bye bye plastic bottles!
After 1-3 months of daily use, your Kishu Binchotan charcoal water filter will not be active any longer. Once you’ve finished using it, nature will gladly take it back. An excellent fertiliser, just crush it and mix with potting soil where it will add nourishment and regulate the PH balance – so your plants can thrive and flourish and do an even better job of absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere around this planet that we love so much.

Binchotan White Charcoal – An unparalleled quality and a unique production process makes this charcoal unique. For centuries, artisans in Japan’s Wakayama region have turned oak branches into Binchotan, a type of activated charcoal known for its purifying properties and its white hue, earning it the name “White Charcoal”.
White Charcoal is made using the same techniques and processes that have been used for centuries. In this ancient Japanese method pieces of wood are baked in hand-built clay kilns, slowly at first and then at extremely high temperatures with restricted oxygen. This allows carbon to be captured in the wood by a process called pyrolysis.
This technique transforms it into 95% pure carbon with a hard but very porous surface. 20g of charcoal has a surface of a tennis court. This huge surface has the power to attract impurities and toxins and to eliminate them by changing the chemical connections. As its made from wood, the natural minerals absorbed from the soil by the growing trees are trapped inside the White Charcoal when it is made and later released into drinking water, the air or skin.
