Why use chemical plastic filters to get micro-plastic and other gunk out of your water when there's a natural, plastic-free alternative – that works!
Using an age-old technique, these BintEau Kishu Binchotan sticks have been forged in the Wakayama Forest of Japan. They're exactly what they look like - charcoal - but unlike those found in your barbecue, they're ACTIVATED. That means they've been processed to become highly absorbent.
Industries use activated carbon to absorb pollutants from the air and water all the time, but for filtering drinking water, the Japanese-made Kishu Binchotan, is known to be one of the best – this is because of the high quality local oak the manufacturers use to make the charcoal*.
The Colorado State University has found Kishu Binchotan to be effective in reducing the presence of lead, mercury, copper, aluminium and molybdenum from the water, as well as adding Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium to it.
BintEau comes in boxes of two. Each stick will filter your water for 3 months.
Popping it into your drinking water bottle for 2-3 hours, or even better leaving it to filter your water overnight, will give you purer drinking water, the natural way.
BintEau is made from sustainable Japanese oak.
* Not all Binchotan sold on the market is made to the quality of Japanese Binchotan. If it doesn't say KISHU Binchotan, then it's probably not the real thing.
