The Takesumi Bamboo Charcoal is an ecological and immensely economical solution for highly purifying water.
It is very porous and has the particularity of adsorbing and retaining 3 times more pollutants from the air and water than a classic activated carbon. Its adsorption surface area is 3000m2/gram. It is also an excellent odour and moisture absorber. It is naturally charged with negative ions and attracts toxic particles to itself. It mineralises water thanks to its content of silicic acid, calcium and potassium.
Zero Plastic, Zero Waste, Less Chlorine, Less pollutants, More minerals Takesumi still produced in a clay oven, according to ancestral know-how, the tiger bamboo wood is burnt for 3 days at 800° to 1000°.

Step 3. Place 1 stick of takesumi in a carafe, pour between 0.75 and 1 litre of running water.
Step 4. Leave to act for (5h to 12h to mineralise the water, adsorb chlorine and pollutants, etc.).
Step 5. Drink up!
Final Step. After 3 months, reactivate the coal by boiling it for 5 to 10 minutes.
The takesumi stick can be used for 6 months (2 times 3 months). You can recycle it as a plant fertilizer or natural deodorant in cupboards, fridge or shoes...
The takesumi is very light and floats for the first few days of use. After a few days, it will go down and no longer float. The floating does not alter its properties in any way.
