Water filters that are so easy to use

Bamboo charcoal is a refreshingly simple and natural way of filtering tap water. Just leave it in a jug filled with tap water and it will slowly filter out impurities such as chlorine and chloramines make your water tastier and free from typical tap water odour. Instructions for use.


An added benefit of using bamboo charcoal as a water filter is that it “mineralises” the water during initial usage by slowly releasing minerals – potassium, magnesium, etc. - into the water.

How bamboo charcoal works

Bamboo charcoal’s incredible filtering ability comes from its super-porous structure – some may find it hard to believe but 1g of high quality bamboo charcoal has a surface area equivalent of up to 3 tennis courts. It works like a sponge and absorbs impurities into its pores.

Sustainable wood

Why bamboo?

Other woods can be used to make charcoal for filtering water but the larger number of porous cavities in bamboo charcoal is considered to give it better filtering abilities - 3 times greater per gramme than wood charcoal. As a fast-growing plant, supply is abundant and sustainable.
