The first of its kind in Africa, and scientifically-proven, KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal Sticks are a completely plastic-free, sustainable and recyclable water purification solution. The ultimate next generation of water filter – for home or for travel.

For greater volumes, simply add extra sticks.

Activated charcoal, or Binchotan attracts and draws out positively-charged toxins (chemicals, heavy metals, E. coli) from your water, while depositing beneficial minerals and balancing an acidic pH.

    Water is just water, right? No. It’s not about the taste but also how it feels in your mouth when drinking. It should feel “polished”. Even my coffee tastes better because of KURO-Bo.

  2. Tiphaine Alston

    I recently bought a couple of KURO-Bo charcoal sticks and I am really enjoying the delicious flavor of the water. They are easy to use and look good too. A great eco friendly product! Will definitely be buying more!

  3. Farren Greening

    Put in an open jug in the fridge and no onion fridge taste! Just pure clean water!

    This is the single best product I have bought anywhere in a very long time. Although I adore my stefani filter, it does not have the edge on this very simple, extremely innovative, effective and eco-friendly product. So easy to use, the water tastes magnificent (my son calls it loving water) and I love the fact that it is so versatile and can be used in water containers of my choice. Now all we need is for someone to design a filtered drinking bottle for water on the go! – a review from Faithful To Nature

    This is my new best friend – already ordered another one. Water tastes like it used to. Now to tell my friends…- review from Faithful To Nature 22/6/17

  6. Nicky

    Definite taste improvement which lasts – I have had my Kuro-Bo for more than a month and have done the 10 minute re-boil – the water still tastes great! Tested versus tap water and water from a jug filter and it’s really a huge improvement on the tap water, and better than the jug – removes chlorine taste, metallic taste and muddy taste. Great product! – review from Faithful To Nature

  7. Cheryl

    Good product and cost effective. I really like this product. It makes water taste cleaner and it’s cost effective. I’ve used one stick for the full 3 months. Filter cartridges only last 1 month and are, of course, plastic! – review from Faithful To Nature

  8. Amy Abrahams

    The water tastes amazing! I didn’t think it would taste any different to filtered water you buy at the store but it really is better. So impressed! (Facebook Review)

    Not sure how we lived without these, they make the water taste amazing, so easy to clean and use and really so cost effective. Absolute winner!

    Simple, effective filtering solution! Keep it in my fridge water cooler and it’s made life so much easier

  11. Barbs

    Definitely love how the water tastes after using the charcoal stick. It’s so easy to use too. Just boil it in water for 10 minutes, let it cool and pop it in to a jug of water or your water filter and after a few hours it’s ready to drink! I’m drinking more water because it tastes so good.

  12. Janneke

    Such an amazing product. You can really taste the difference!
