Bamboo Charcoal Water Filter Sticks
A plastic-free solution for better-tasting tap water. Made from a sustainable material - bamboo!- and never activated with chemicals, so you can toss it in your compost when finished.
Bamboo Charcoal absorbs impurities from your tap water. Lab tests also show that bamboo charcoal will absorb pesticides and other toxins.
Bamboo charcoal pieces are handcut to be added to tap water. Pieces should be rinsed and boiled prior to adding to tap water for effective use.
Because the bamboo charcoal is hand-cut, sizes of tiles will vary depending on weight.
Boxes come as an assortment of wider and skinny pieces to fit into both carafes and reusable water bottles.
Please note that it is normal for some breakage of the charcoal pieces to occur during transit and this will not be cause for return/ refund.
On average, the 100 gram is about a 3-month supply. 200 gram boxes are 6 month supply.
How to Use:
1.) Rinse sticks, boil for 5 minutes, and allow to dry.
