I’ve been purchasing bulky, plastic water filters for as long as I can remember. My recurring order of a 4-pack of ZeroWater filters cost $44.99 on Amazon, and each filter lasts about a month... Give or take a few days. Yesterday, I discovered Japanese Binchotan Charcoal water filter sticks. They absorb the impurities from our tap water, resulting in pure, seriously great tasting water. One stick costs $12.95 on Amazon, and all you have to do is boil the stick and let it dry every two weeks to reactivate the charcoal filter. I’m so amazed and excited about this reusable, zero-plastic, eco and economically friendly water filter option... Binchotan Charcoal ftw!
