In November last year we set out to find as many activate charcoal products as possible. One of our favourite and most used finds was the KURO-Bo Activated Charcoal water filter sticks. This black stick, which resembled a burnt bark is added to water and within 6 hours, filters tap water to remove chlorine, E.coli and heavy metals. It turns tap water into what I imagine water in the Swiss Alps tastes like and is one of the most cost effective and eco-friendly ways of drinking purified water.

 

The stick can be used for 3 months and when it is ‘finished’, you can add it to your compost bin, store in the fridge to remove bad odours or add it to your next braai.

 

The only thing I didn’t like about the original KURO-Bo activated Charcoal water filter sticks was their size. The thick diameter meant that they don’t fit inside water bottles, rather you need to use them in water jugs or if your fridge has a water dispenser you can pop it into the water container in the fridge for filtered water.

 

Most of the water I consume on a daily basis comes from a glass bottle that I lug around with me. I found that since I started doing that I drink a lot more then when I was having the occasional glass. When the KURO-Bo stick arrived, I envisioned using it in a water bottle; but instead used it in jugs as the sticks would not fit a water bottle.

 

These KURO-Bo Koins are the answer to Bottled Water [+Giveaway]

In the beginning of this year, KURO-Bo solved my problem by introducing KURO-Bo Koins. A “coin size” version of the original KURO-Bo Activated Charcoal water filter. The KURO-BO Koins come in boxes containing 5 Koins which work in the exact same way as the stick. You boil them for 10 minutes to activate them and remove any loose particles. Boiling them also removes the black ‘residue’ which you’ll find is left on your hands pre-boiling. You then allow them cool and then pop them into a bottle of water (up to a Litre) for 3 hours to filter it.

 

I’ve been using the Koins with the KURO-Bo limited edition Go-Eco Glass Water Bottle which is BPA and PVC free, leak proof, non toxic, has a reinforced glass base, good grip and stain resistant. It’s also pretty good looking. The design and shape is super sleek and simple making it easy to store and carry around – if you can grab one before they sell out.

 

If you can’t get one, I’ve also tried the Koins with these glass water bottles and they work just as well.
