KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal Water Filter
KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal Water Filter is made from Binchotan, which itself is created through an ancient Japanese technique where high quality hardwood is baked in a kiln, at temperatures of over 1000ºC, until it becomes carbonised. Through this process KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal becomes a highly porous natural filter and, when placed in tap water, naturally adsorbs and removes toxins, while enriching it with beneficial minerals, turning ordinary tap water into filtered water, with a delicious and more refreshing taste.
The sticks are affordable (just over R1 per litre of filtered water) and very simple to use, ideally in a glass, ceramic or stainless steel container.
Essentially nature’s own toxin magnet, KURO-Bō is a unique 100% natural, recyclable and plastic-free filter made of pure activated charcoal that is scientifically proven to:
- Purify * (removes heavy metals/chemicals)
- Mineralise * (adds minerals, e.g., Mg, Ca)
- Improve taste and odour (removes Chlorine)
- Remove bacteria * (E. coli)
- Balances an acidic pH *
The entire product, including its packaging is sustainable, biodegradable/compostable and recyclable.
KURO-Bō is committed to the philosophy of minimal environmental impact and plastic, and maximal community upliftment. Every facet of its production and packaging is earth-conscious, sustainable and 100% recyclable – with even the ‘plastic bag’ made from compostable corn starch. Minimal carbon dioxide emissions are guaranteed.
