Kishu Charcoal - Kishu Charcoal Filter for Pitchers

Kishu Charcoal Filter for PItchers is the perfect counter-top water filter solution. Ideally placed in any 1-2 quart pitcher, Kishu begins working immediately, bonding with toxins in tap water. Just add tap water in the evening for use the next day. Kishu Charcoal is made from 100% natural oak tree branches.

Kishu Charcoal is the plastic-free way to delicious tasting water. Simply place the appropriate size n a pitcher, water bottle, or large jug - add tap water - watch Kishu go to work filtering out impurities and enhancing the taste of your water.

Made by artisans, using traditional methods, Kishu Charcoal begins as branches of sustainably harvested oak trees are placed in a kiln until 1000 degrees and many days later, the dense, glass-like material (Kishu) emerges.

This is the process that makes Kishu Charcoal such a fantastic eco-water filter! One stick lasts four months and then can be reused as a deodorizer (refrigerator or garbage pail). Kishu is completely compostable - break it up and use it to enhance soil in the garden.

Frequently Asked QuestionsHow was Kishu Charcoal discoverd?Years ago, their founder Judith Bershof — a passionate water drinker and lifelong environmentalist — was tired of throwing away her water pitcher’s plastic filter every few months. Fed up, she resolved to never again buy a plastic filter. Instead, she would find a new, more earth-friendly way to filter her tap water. So she asked herself, “What’s inside the plastic casing that actually does the filtering?” After some research she learned the answer: activated charcoal, which the Japanese have used for thousands of years to purify their drinking water.Judith then contacted artisans in Japan who specialize in activated charcoal. These artisans follow a centuries-old method: oak branches are sustainably harvested and then fired in handmade outdoor ovens; after many days of continuous, closely monitored carbonization to over 1000 degrees, the branches transform into a hard, glass-like material — activated charcoal.The artisans began shipping it to her in Denver, Colorado, and with that Kishu Charcoal was born!How does Kishu Charcoal work? Activated charcoal naturally bonds with toxins. This is why it is used, in some form, in almost every water filtration system in the world. In municipal water systems, various additives (chlorine, for example) are also included in the treatment of water. And some municipal systems are not as rigorous as they could be. It is because of this that consumers are wary of their water source and want to filter their water.How do I use Kishu Charcoal? Is it complicated? Kishu could not be easier. Simply place your stick of Kishu in any vessel and add tap water. Kishu begins working immediately. It does not need to be removed.

How do I care for Kishu Charcoal? Kishu needs no special care, but boiling the stick once a month keeps its exterior pores open. Completely submerge your Kishu stick in a shallow pan of water and bring to a robust boil for 10 minutes. Empty the pan of water and allow it to dry for 30 minutes. After 4 months, it’s time to replace your Kishu stick with a new one.Can I clean Kishu Charcoal to remove the toxins?Kishu cannot be cleansed of toxins because they have bonded at the molecular level. Once this molecular bonding occurs, the toxins will remain attached. The toxins that have been removed will not leach back into the water.How long does Kishu Charcoal last?One stick lasts 4 months.How will I know when my Kishu Charcoal is no longer filtering effectively?After 4 months, you will notice that your water no longer has the distinct, bright, fresh taste you have come to love.So, do I have to throw it out then?No! Kishu has many uses in its second life as a deodorizer in the refrigerator or other places where odors are present. Because it is biodegradable, it can also be mixed with soil in the garden to create bio-char, or used in the bottom of potted plant for drainage.Does Kishu Charcoal ever break down or dissolve?Kishu never dissolves. A little flaking may occur, but this is NOT AT ALL harmful and will not affect the filtering process.Tell me about the packaging.They are so proud of their packaging. They took special care and research to create a completely biodegradable package: their label is made from paper that is FSC Certified, SFI Certified Sourcing, and Rainforest Alliance Certified and printed using the most environmentally friendly process available. The clear sleeve is made from wood pulp and is completely compostable.
