Over 22 billion plastic bottles are discarded around the world each and every year. The aim of these superbly designed bottles is to reduce this waste of resources by making tap water taste so much better and encourage more people to stop buying bottled water and switch to sustainable, reusable bottles usng standard tap water to refill time and again. The “eau good” bottles are BPA free, have an 800ml capacity and contain a replaceable, binchotan charcoal stick which is a natural active carbon filter made from tree branches and is renowned for it’s ability to soften water, add good minerals, such as calcium, iron and magnesium and absorb unwanted tastes and odours, such as cadmium, chlorine, copper, lead and mercury. Binchotan active charcoal has been used in Japan as a water purifier since the 17th century. It reduces chlorine, mineralises the water and balances the PH level. The binchotan active charcoal filter stick can be used for up to 6 months in total. If you are using your binchotan charcoal filter stick with the 800ml ‘eau good’ bottle and fill it up once a day, then it should last three months. You should then recharge the filter stick by boiling it in water for ten minutes and then leaving it to dry in sunlight. You should be able to keep recharging it for a further three months. When the binchotan charcoal filter stick no longer produces good results, it should be replaced. When the depleted binchotan stick is no longer used for water filtration, it can still have many other uses, such as
The filters can be bought separaetly and used in any bottle of your choice, but we do highly recomend the eau good bottle. It has been excellently designed and is a pleasure to use, much nicer to drink from than a standard plastic bottle. The cork stopper comes in several different colours and is also replaceable if it gets lost or damaged. For use at the dinning table a 1 litre glass carafe is also available.
🙂 Our personal opinion: We absolutely love our eau good water bottles. They are very pleasing to look at and to use and of course give great tasting water. The tags on the bottle stoppers are really handy for looping over your finger when juggling an armful of other things or for attaching (with a carabiner or D ring) to your belt loops, your pushchair handles, or the outside of your bag for easy access, hands free carrying. These are one of our all time favourite purchases! 🙂
