Want filtered water at the lowest rate without plumbing or recycling problems, then our Charcoal Water Filter stick is the answer.
Simply drop the charcoal into your water, we recommend one stick per litre, then leave for 1 hour and enjoy your filtered water. Each charcoal will last for 6 months as a water filter, and they are then recyclable for other uses around the home e.g. if you break it up and put it in your house plants, it will add nutrients to the soil that will help the plant to grow.
The Charcoal Stick 4-pack is exactly what it says on the box – a pack of four Binchotan charcoal sticks. Combined, the 4-pack gives you 2 years’ worth of filtration! Each filter is individually vacuum-packed in recyclable plastic for immediate use.
Kishu Charcoal left in a pitcher of water removes; lead, mercury and cadmium. The stick will also remove chlorine and other chemicals from water and release natural minerals back into the water. Because the sticks are natural product and each branch is different it is hard to give exact toxic adsorption percentages.
According to Natural News* Brita filters remove 14% of lead, 75% of mercury, 6% of cadmium, 33% of aluminum and 12% of arsenic.
There is no plastic to discard or recycle after your stick is toxin saturated in four to six months (the percentage of recycled plastic filters is very small). Simply throw your charcoal stick in the garden or use in the fridge as an odor eliminator after four months. Some boil the stick once a month for ten minutes and this, they say, keeps the stick active for 6 months.
