Bamboo Charcoal Natural Water Filter - Regular


Say goodbye to expensive store bought water bottles and chemical water filters and filter your water in a 100% natural way!

Bamboo Charcoal filters are the green plastic free alternative to water filters like Brita: Thanks to the carbon adsorption qualities, they remove impurities from your tap water caused by chlorine and other chemicals and release back minerals such as magnesium an calcium to ensure your water tastes, looks and smells absolutely amazing.

For a true zero waste solution, once it's time to dispose of your bamboo filter, you can used it as dehumidifier for your cupboards and then you can either throw it in your home compost to remove odours or smash it up and use it as fertiliser to add vital nutrients to the soil. 





100% bamboo charcoal, free from chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers.
Each pack will include 12 pieces (approx. 100gr) of bamboo charcoal.


Please note that bamboo charcoal does not adsorb pathogens, so we don't recommend using it to filter creek water.

Made in Japan

We recommend to use three pieces of bamboo charcoal per litre of water.

  1. Rinse the bamboo under cold water
  2. Boil it for 5 minutes and let it dry in the sun. This will ensure a full sterilisation.
  3. Place your bamboo charcoal in your water bottle and fill it with tap water.
  4. Let it sit for one hour and drink it up!

We recommend sterilizing the bamboo once a week by repeating point 2.

Your charcoal bamboo filter should last around 3-4 weeks depending on the quality of your tap water and your consumption's level.

You'll know it's time to replace it once you won't see any more bubbles on its surface.

Bamboo Charcoal Natural Rice Cooking Filter


Bamboo charcoal has a ten times higher adsorptive power than other wooden charcoals (such as binchotan made from oak trees) thanks to its surface area of 300 square meter per gram and because it contains many mineral components such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and silicic acid you will be making your own mineral water!

The high-quality domestic Moso bamboo used as a raw material for this bamboo charcoal filter does not use any chemicals, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and it's cut only when it reaches full maturity. 

Originally from China, Moso Bamboo has quickly spread in Japan thanks to its quick growth: it takes only three months for the Moso Bamboo to grow from bamboo shoots to its full height. Its tremendous growth speed makes Bamboo a sustainable natural resource that is unmatched by other types of woods.
