If you’re searching for a water filtration system that’s uncomplicated, modern and eco-friendly, our exhibitor KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal is at the top of the list.

KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal is the only 100% natural water filter in South Africa to purify and mineralise water. It not only purifies ordinary tap water, but does so in a way that is totally eco-friendly.

In a world that produces millions of tonnes of plastic waste and carbon emissions every year, KURO-Bō is the only non-plastic water filter that is reusable, 100% recyclable and results in minimal Carbon Dioxide emissions – from the way in which it’s made to its completely biodegradable packaging.

KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal, or Binchotan, has been used for centuries in Japanese culture to filter and purify water. The hardwood used to craft KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal is sustainably harvested from forests in South East Asia. The trees are pruned for their wood, not cut down.

KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal

Camilla Morrisby, Director and co-founder of Kuro-Bo Activated Charcoal says “Kuro-Bo effectively adsorbs toxins and E. coli from tap water, while uniquely enriching it with beneficial minerals that most filtration systems remove. The flavour and odour is dramatically improved and there’s a difference in every taste.” She went on to say that “By opting out of the unrelenting consumption of plastic bottles and cartridges, we are also looking after our planet today, and for the generations to come.”

KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal comes in hand-cut, beautiful sticks that are quickly activated through 10-minute boiling before each one is added to a minimum of 2 litres of tap water daily. The water can be kept in the fridge or on the kitchen counter for three hours or more to enable KURO-Bō to do its purifying work. All toxins are bound to the charcoal stick, while calcium and magnesium enrich the water and improve the taste. A KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal stick lasts for three months, and after that, can be recycled in number of innovative and beneficial ways, including using it as a dehumidifiers, deodorisers or as garden fertiliser.
