Glass Carafe with Charcoal Filter
+ $ shipping surcharge
This curvy glass carafe isn’t just a way to make your water look good—it also happens to turn any tap water into pure, clean-tasting water, thanks to a piece of binchotan charcoal that acts as a natural filter. The Japanese have used active charcoal as a natural water purifier for centuries; it reduces chlorine, mineralizes water, and balances the pH. The included binchotan active charcoal can be used for up to 3 months before it needs to be replaced (and can then be re-charged for another 3 months with a little boiling water). The carafe itself is made of hand-blown, sturdy soda glass and comes with cork stopper to top it all off.

Care & Notes -
Binchotan charcoal is washed and ready to go. Once opened, the charcoal stick has a 3-month life. Charcoal can be "recharged" by boiling in water for 10 minutes and then drying in sunlight. Once recharged, charcoal should last for an additional 3 months.
To clean the carafe, wash with hot soapy water and a bottle brush. Bottle is dishwasher safe, although cork top should not be placed in the dishwasher.
Do not leave water sitting in the bottle when not in use. When not in use, empty the bottle, remove the stopper, and allow it to dry out.
