Have your peers salivating with envy when they see you with their super cool filter water bottle. It looks amazing, but most importantly it makes your tap water taste great!

They’d like to take the credit for inventing this clever method of filtration, but they’ll own up and admit that the Japanese have been doing it for over 500 years). The black stick is actually active charcoal (the Japanese call it Binchotan) and the porous surface removes all the chemical nasties from your water. If you consider yourself a trend setting early adopter fashionista, then this is the water bottle for you.

  • Awesome for adults and cool for kids 
  • Perfect for taking to work, school or trekking
  • It makes your tap water taste delicious
  • Includes one (1) Binchotan active charcoal filter
  • Charcoal has a 6 month life, if used daily
  • BPA free, FDA approved materials 

Don't Bottle It They’re guessing you all know why bottled water is so bad for the planet… and your wallet. Consider the 22 billion plastic bottles that end up as land fill, or in the oceans each year. They've created a bottle which will stop you buying bottled water and inspire you to glug your local tap water instead. It may look like glass (especially when filled with water), but it's actually made from a durable lightweight BPA free plastic called Tritan (which is made in the USA).

As well as the moral string to its bow, they think you’ll agree that it also looks pretty damn cool as well. You’ll love the cork stopper, stainless steel ring and fabric finger hold, that give it a cool modern retro feel. The charcoal will last six months, if used daily… and has many secondary uses afterwards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the history of Binchotan charcoal? The origins are not completely clear, but it is believed that a form of Binchotan charcoal (sometimes referred to as 'white charcoal') was introduced to Japan by a Japanese monk and scholar called Kukai 1,200 years ago. It was during the Edo Period (17th century) that a man called Binchuya Chozaemon made it popular.

How is it made? Sustainably sourced wood is placed in a kiln and charred at a relatively low temperature for some time, then, near the end of the process, the kiln temperature is raised to about 1000 degree Celsius to make the wood red-hot. The charcoal is then removed and quickly covered with a special powder made from earth, sand and ash, and this gives the charcoal surface a whitish hue (explaining the name 'white charcoal'). The rapid rise in temperature, followed by a rapid cooling, incinerates the bark and leaves a smooth, hard surface. If you strike it, you'll hear a clear, metallic sound.

How does it work? Binchotan charcoal has an incredibly porous surface with tiny cavities oriented in many directions. Just 1 gram has a surface area in excess of 500 m2 (about one tenth the size of a football field). It is also known as active carbon as the ions of contaminants are attracted to the surface of the carbon, where they will be held. It is also able to release minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium back into the water which enhances its taste and health benefits.

How long will it last? If you are using your Binchotan with our 'eau good' bottle and fill it up once a day, then it should last three months. You are then able to recharge it by boiling it in water for ten minutes and then leaving to dry in sunlight. You should be able to keep recharging it for a further three months.

What other uses does the Binchotan have? When you have finished using your Binchotan as a water filter, it still has many secondary uses.  If you break it up and put it in your house plants, it will add nutrients to the soil that will help the plant to grow. Because of its porous surface, it can be used as a deodoriser to remove unwanted odors in your cat litter, laundry basket, nappy bin or shoes. Binchotan is also an effective moisture absorbent, and can help absorb humidity in the air if placed in a wardrobe.

Do you need to wash my charcoal? Your Binchotan charcoal is already washed and ready to use. Please do not wash with detergent or soap.

Can you use your Binchotan with flavored water (fruit infused or tea)? Please do not use with flavoured cordials, fruit infusions or tea.

Can you wash your bottle with soap and leave the charcoal in it? Please remove the Binchotan from the bottle before washing with soap.

Where can you order more charcoal from? Order from their website or on amazon.

Is it dangerous if you swallow a bit of charcoal? Occasionally you will notice tiny particles / fragments of the charcoal in the water, but do not be alarmed as it will do you no harm if you swallow them (active charcoal tablets are prescribed to treat diarrhoea, indigestion and flatulence).

How should you clean your bottle? They advise to wash this by hand with hot soapy water and a bottle brush. Although the bottle and metal clamp are dishwasher safe, the fabric tag will not withstand frequent dishwashes. The silicon seal on the cork can be removed and is dishwasher safe. The cork is not dishwasher safe.

How do you prevent mould from forming on the silicon covering the cork stopper? Make sure you do not leave water sitting in your bottle, when you are not using it (for more than one day). Remove the stopper and allow it dry out. When water is left in the bottle for long periods of time, mould spores can form. The Binchotan charcoal removes the chlorine from drinking water, so you might notice it forming even quicker than normal. This is nothing to worry about, as long as you are refilling regularly, cleaning the bottle regularly and not drinking stale water that has been sitting in the bottle for more than a day.

How do you clean mould from the silicone covering the cork stopper? They recommend using neat lemon juice, followed by boiling water, to kill and wash away mould that has formed on the silicone.

About Black+Blum

Curated Creativity They are passionate about creating beautiful, original designs which are underpinned with functionality. They have an eclectic taste and this shows through in the varying aesthetics of their different ranges. They design in house but also collaborate with the most talented designers worldwide, bringing the finest products to market.

Their Beginnings Dan Black and Martin Blum met while studying industrial design at Northumbria University. In 1998, not long after graduating, they formed black+blum. Although the company started as a consultancy, their passion lay in developing and selling their own designs and they launched their first range of lighting in 2000. The range quickly grew and they entered the homeware market in 2002, with the launch of their iconic James the doorman.

Continued Success Other award winning designs followed swiftly, with the propello fan, loop candelabra and box appetit lunch box. The designs were adventurous in diversity of category and aesthetic, but always consistently underpinned with function and fun. In 2014 Dan took over the reins of the organisation and steered black+blum into becoming the design house behind several homeware ranges, with each one having its own individual category and recognisable aesthetic.

Dan grew up discussing products and design with his family from an early age. His passion and skill for design was recognised in a first class honours degree from the respected Design for Industry course at the University of Northumbria (Newcastle). Dan gained further professional insight working at IDEO (London), Frog Design (California) and under Julian Brown at Studio Brown (Bath).

The Iconic Oxo Tower Their studio is in the Oxo Tower, which is situated in central London next to the Thames. London is the melting pot of design cultures, and being in the heart of the city allows them to take advantage of these influences.

A Design Community The Oxo Tower has two floors of creative studio space and is home to many different creative companies.
