Contemporary and functional, each Gō-Ecō Glass Water Bottle is individually hand-made and reinforced, ensuring a lightweight, durable and portable design.
And, when paired with KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal Kōins, every sip of water you take won’t just taste better, it will be healthier for you – and the planet, too – every single day, for three whole months!
KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal 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 eco-friendly packaging (*the box/sleeve are recycled and recyclable card, and the bag is compostable corn starch).
KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal is created by carefully harvesting high-quality hardwood, which is then baked by highly trained craftsmen in a special kiln – initially at low, and then later at extremely high temperatures of over 1000ºC. This process causes the wood to carbonise and activate, while also enlarging its pore structure to enable maximum toxin adsorption. After 7 – 14 days, the carbonised wood is removed from its kiln and covered with a mixture of earth, sand and ash, giving it a temporary whitish hue – as well as its other name of “white charcoal”. Once cooled, the activated charcoal is then carefully hand-cut in order to be used as a natural water filter, as well as in many other innovative ways.
