Kuro-Bo Natural Charcoal Water Filter


More and more South Africans are welcoming this special water filter into their health-conscious homes. Kuro-Bo Activated Charcoal is the first and only 100% plastic-free, natural and recyclable water filter in Africa. Activated charcoal, or Binchotan, has been used for centuries in Japanese culture to filter and purify water. The charcoal attracts positively-charged toxins and heavy metals, and draws them out of the water, while depositing beneficial minerals into the water.
