More info

Binchotan active charcoal (stick) is used to filter water.

For over 500 years the Japanese have used Binchotan active charcoal to purify their tap water. The Binchotan active charcoal stick will absorb impurities such as chlorine.

This range was created to encourage people to stop buying expensive bottled water and adding to the continuing single-use plastic global environmental problem.

Why the Active Charcoal sticks?

  • Makes water taste great
  • Absorb impurities such as chlorine
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Recyclable to use around the house
  • Helps to stop buying bottled water
  • Adds Minerals
  • Natural Water Filter lasts for 6 months
  • Easy to use
  • Pre-washed and ready to use
  • Vacuum sealed
  • Packed individually
  • Can be used in water bottles and jugs

How to use: Simply drop the charcoal into your water, we recommend one stick per litre, then leave for 1 hour (8 is best) and enjoy your filtered water. 

How to recharge: Each charcoal will last for 6 months as a water filter, simply recharge after the first 3 months use, as its effectiveness decreases. All you must do is boil it for 10 minutes to rejuvenate.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

All Cood.

Charcoal stick works brilliantly to make our tap water taste great. Much more cost effective than buying filters for the jug that only last a short time. Will definitely purchase again.

Happy customer

Was delighted to find these charcoal sticks were available in New Zealand. I have used them in France.
No more chlorine taste in town water supply.


Easy solution

Our dog won't drink tapwater. Having a jug in the fridge with a charcoal stick solves the problem. Easy solution to make your water taste great with no nasties.
