Miyabi Charcoal Water Sticks

By Miyabi

Let's talk tap water. If you have drinkable tap water it can keep THOUSANDS of water bottles out of the waste stream with a simple twist of the handle. Unfortunately, not all tap water is created equal and some tastes downright bad even if it IS safe to drink. Many rely on Brita type filters to improve the taste of tap water but at the end of life you are left with a pesky plastic filter to dispose of. These Charcoal sticks are the answer to your plastic free prayers. 2-3 large pieces in one pitcher of water (1 piece per litre) lasts up to 4-6 weeks, and 1-2 skinny pieces in a water bottle lasts the same. On top of absorbing unwanted flavors in your water, these charcoal sticks also keep your water bottle from getting stinky if you don't wash it every day...Which we all do, of course, but just in case you don’t...we've got you covered.  

Adding bamboo charcoal to your drinking water will help remove impurities and improve taste.

No more plastic bottles or filters.

No more waste. Throw your used charcoal into the compost, garden and potted plants to reduce trash and add vital nutrients to the soil.

Three simple steps:

  1. Rinse, boil for 5 minutes, and dry in the sun.
  2. Add to a one-liter of tap water. We recommend 3 pieces per liter of water. Add more pieces for larger containers.
  3. Let stand for 1 hour and drink! Your charcoal should last around 4 weeks depending on quality of your tap water.
