These biodegradable bamboo, charcoal water filters slowly filter out impurities such as chlorine and chloramines. The porous surface of the charcoal absorbs these chemicals from the water, and the alkaline qualities also soften and improve the taste.

The filters can also capture moisture and odours from the air, so at the end of their life (approx. 2 months), they can be placed in the fridge to keep produce fresh, or in a mouldy kitchen or bathroom corner to help remove moisture from damp areas. Alternatively, the charcoal can be broken up and put into plants or soil. This helps to control bacteria, improve drainage, and prevent the soil from being too acidic. Once the charcoal has been reused, and is at the end of its life it can be composted.

This reusable cotton bag contains 4 individual charcoal filters, suitable for 1 Litre jug of water.


Bamboo Charcoal

How to Use

Place the filters in jug or bottle filled with tap water and they will slowly filter out impurities such as chlorine and chloramines. After 2 months of use, the filters can then be used in useful ways around your home.

Use approx: 1 litre jug = 3 - 4 pieces; 2 litre jug = 6 - 8 pieces

1. Wash in running water to remove powder (do not use detergent).

2. Boil for 10 mins in a pan of water to sterilise & allow to cool and dry.

3. Place in a jug and fill with tap water (charcoal may float when new but it will tend to sink after a week or so of use).

4. Leave for 8 hours or more for best results. You can leave it in the fridge to chill if you like. It's then ready to drink.

5. Re-sterilise once a week by repeating step 2.

6. Replace with new charcoal after 2 months approx.
