Can I use the charcoal water filter in all the bottles?
Yes you can use the Binchotan charcoal water filter in all our water bottles, although some of them, like the glass bottles, would require the steel coil as well to ensure your charcoal doesn’t move too much in the bottle.
What is Bintochan charcoal made from?
Binchotan is an active carbon made from tree branches and is renowned for its ability to soften water, add good minerals and absorb unwanted tastes and odours, such as chlorine.
Where does the charcoal come from?
Our charcoal is sustainably sourced from a renewable forest in Laos. It’s burned to up to 1000 degrees using an ancient method and then rapidly cooled in the earth, producing a very smooth, very dense material that naturally filters water.
What happens if the charcoal breaks?
It will still work the same in your bottle, but if you’re not sure there’s plenty of other great uses for it. It can be used as a deodoriser in shoes, broken up and spread over house plants adding nutrients to the soil. It even can absorb humidity in the air if placed in your wardrobe.
How long does the charcoal last?
If used in just over 1L of water daily, it will last for 3 months. You can then recharge it by boiling it for 10 minutes, and it will last an additional 3 months.
