Binchotan Charcoal Purifying Sticks
Enjoy pure and delicious water year-round with these all-natural Binchotan Charcoal sticks. Binchotan Charcoal is widely known to be one of the purest and most effective types of activated charcoal, and its powerful absorptive properties easily attract unwanted chemicals and flavors in tap water. These glass-like and attractive sticks are 100% Ubame Oak, and are made the time-honored way in Wakayama, Japan.
Simply add sticks to a carafe of cold water. Allow charcoal to purify water (about 4-8 hours) and enjoy, refilling the water as you use it. Unlike plastic filters, charcoal is entirely biodegradable and does wonders when disposed of in your garden.
Skilled artisans transform raw wood into charcoal sticks by burning oak branches at extremely high temperatures (2300°F) and then rapidly smothering the flame with dirt. This process of heating and cooling carbonizes the structure of the wood, leaving countless microscopic cavities that easily trap unwanted chemicals. One gram of Binchotan charcoal has as much surface area as a tennis court.
Each quarter pound bag includes a random assortment of charcoal pieces of various sizes. Preparation instructions and additional uses are included.
