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. Activated charcoal also balances the water’s pH. A single stick of Kuro-Bo charcoal can give you up to 3 months of cleaner, healthier, better-tasting water.

Excellent product. I live in a rural area and this works very well to purify my water. water tastes good too.

This is a lovely simple way to purify your water. I leave it in a beautiful glass decanter, so it adds a touch of romance too!
25/10/2018, By Nelly
So handy and necessary
17/10/2018, By Shan
Honestly, I didn't think it would work as well as it actually does. Pleasantly surprised.
16/10/2018, By Princess
I was honestly and pleasantly surprised at how well the charcoal filter worked. After tedious work of sourcing "quality" water, this charcoal filter has not only saved me time, energy and money but it has saved my taste buds and health. The water filtered by the charcoal tastes amazing, and also refreshing, so much so that I don't snack as much as I used to. I think it has to do with the minerals deposited by the charcoal. I can't get enough of this water:)
11/09/2018, By Dee
This is such a great product. Water just tastes so much different from any other water filter systems that I have used in the past. This is a natural water purifying system that works and I can highly recommend it.
10/09/2018, By Cheryl
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!





















20/08/2018, By Michelle Louise
I love this form of water filtering because it is 100% friendly to the environment.
17/07/2018, By Judith
I have been using these for over a year, and won't go back .. really makes a difference to the taste of the water. thanks for the tip about putting "used" ones in the fridge - will try that!
28/06/2018, By Bavisha
Love it and it's not a hassle to reactivate the charcoal. After three uses I dig a little hole in my garden and allow it to compost my soil.
19/06/2018, By Kirst
Was a little nervous at first but honestly loving the quality water filtered by KuroBo!
25/04/2018, By Jackie
Our whole family uses KURO-Bo and we couldn't imagine living without it.
11/04/2018, By Ankie
Wonderful product, makes the water tastes so much better!!
24/03/2018, By Jasmine
This is my second time purchasing the charcoal stick and it always makes the water taste clean and pure.
24/03/2018, By Jasmine
The water always tastes pure and clean and I actually enjoy drinking water now unlike before when I was drinking tap water.
18/03/2018, By Samantha
Have bought these time and again for myself as well as friends and family. Fantastic and the water definitely tastes better.
23/02/2018, By Aldo
Definitely better and more eco friendly than any other water filter
23/02/2018, By Robin
Been using this product for more than a year now and really happy with the quality and taste of the water. So easy to use and hundred time better than any cartridge filters.
Once my stick is over I use it to vanish all the smell from my fridge and it also works amazingly.
21/02/2018, By Lori
Been using Kuro-Bo sticks for over a year now. I have 3 products which I cannot do without and Kuro-Bo is at the top of my list. Even though they are a bit pricey, they are worth every cent !
18/02/2018, By Veez
I like the theory of the product but it will take some time before I am convinced of its benefits. We've been using it for less than a month and I must admit, the water feels softer. There isn't a noticeable change in taste as I expected though. It's also a little expensive for just one piece.
15/02/2018, By Kate
Awesome product and actually works out cheaper than most filters which need their very expensive cartridges changed once a month. Water tastes great and I like that the kuro-bo adds minerals back into the water.
06/02/2018, By Roz
I love that this is so easy to use and I can have my drinking water in a re-usable glass canister instead of going through plastic bottles or using a plastic filter jug. It is pretty pricey though...
28/01/2018, By Bronwen
I've used it now for two months and we all love it. The water tastes more neutral and softer. If I drink tap water after I drink my kurbo water, I can taste the difference.
22/01/2018, By Lindsay
I am not totally convinced as the taste of the water didn't change much. I will keep using it but I don't think I will purchase this product again.
21/01/2018, By Rebecca
Awesome product! Also reduceert waste cause you drink tap water now! Would be awesome if it came in multi packets and there was no plastic at all

Hey Rebecca!
Thanks for the great review, we love getting feedback like this & appreciate you taking time out of your day. The packaging around the stick is made of compostable corn starch, making this a completely sustainable product from its packaging through to re-using the stick once you've finished using it as a filter.
20/01/2018, By Fatima
I love this. I don't think I can drink normal tap water after tasting this
The water feels softer and you can taste it's cleaner
And it lasts 3 months so it's really worth it, especially if you normally buy bottled water
09/01/2018, By Natalie
What an awesome product! Works really well and leaves my water tasting much cleaner.
09/01/2018, By Sandi
I am so impressed, the water tastes cleaner and a can visibly see less impurities floating around in my water after filtration. I will be taking a large supply of these, when moving to Vietnam in the next few months!
15/12/2017, By Damien
Awesome find it works perfectly. I would have honestly never guessed it would have worked so well.
13/12/2017, By Leanda
Love the product, water tastes fantastic. Also easy to travel with.
Will never be without one.
11/12/2017, By Angie
This is such a great product -so easy and convenient to use!!
Can definitely taste the difference - Will never drink tap water again!
12/11/2017, By Anonymous
Excellent product - really improves the taste
06/10/2017, By Tracey
Easy to use and makes you feel like you have given your body a gift by drinking clean water
04/10/2017, By Nicole
My Mom bought this incredible gift for me for my birthday. I absolutely love it! Water definitely tastes much better and cleaner
27/09/2017, By CR
Excellent product! Effortless, great taste. We have used now since the beginning of April 2017. Wonderlike produk.
26/09/2017, By Kelly
we use rainwater with no filter so adding the Kuro-bo ensures it filters out any nasties that may have been absorbed.
23/09/2017, By ValerieK
A really nice alternative to chemical filters!
11/09/2017, By Heather
Really makes the water taste softer. Spring water was quite acidic, so I am interested to see if this adjusts the pH as claimed. I must still do the test for this after using the filter.
14/08/2017, By Kathleen
The easiest and most effective water filter I have ever used and I have tried several.
17/07/2017, By Judith
I've recently started boiling our drinking water and it tasted ok, but adding the Kuru-Bo stick to the water has made such a positive difference - it really tastes good! I did a blind taste test on my husband and child and they both preferred the water that had been filtered with the Kuru-bo stick. I have recommended it to many friends.
17/07/2017, By Susan
I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. Because, well basically you put a charcoal stick in the water and you think a miracle will happen. But it exactly does that. I normally get the heavy metal taste after drinking a lot of water during the day. After started using this you can't imagine the big difference it makes. It tastes like fresh water!
06/07/2017, By patricia
The water tastes very nice and my whole family loves it.
05/07/2017, By Sophia
Very user friendly product to be used at home and camping. My pets just love their water filtered with the charcoal. So important to drink pH balanced water with a bonus of naturally adding calcium and minerals through out the day without taking extra supplements. Removed bacteria (e.Coli) from your water that can cause a lot of health problems is important also. Water filtered with charcoal, tasted very nice and my pets also love it. Thank you faithful to Nature for the quality organic products available
03/07/2017, By SHARLAIN
VERY EFFICIENT PRODUCT
02/07/2017, By Mimi
Its too soon to give five stars but wow this stick actually works!!! It has transformed the taste of our 'chlorine treated' tap water tremendously.
22/06/2017, By Mary
This is my new best friend - already ordered another one. Water tastes like it used to. Now to tell my friends...
19/06/2017, By Ayanda
Surprisingly enough, it works.
07/06/2017, By J
Took this with on my last overseas trip, so no more worries about quality of tap water wherever I go.
05/06/2017, By Debbie
I was in desperate need to find an alternative to filtered bottled water after a rather nasty incident with water from a very reputable source. I boil filtered water for my son's milk bottles, tea and water bottles and have found that this is really the perfect alternative to bottled filtered water. I now only use this water for any consumption in my home, drinking, cooking, tea or coffee and the best thing is that I won't run out of bottled water. I trust and love this product.
02/06/2017, By Andrea
I just can't get over how fresh and clean my water tastes - no clunky filters to clean out and replace - just this wonderful product. It even makes the water carafe look quite classy ;p
01/06/2017, By Nicky
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!
30/05/2017, By Yu-ting
Easy, convenient and eco-friendly. Not sure if its just a placebo effect but I do feel like the tap water tastes a lot better
04/04/2017, By Fatima
Kuro-Bo is a very effective water filter. The quality of tap water is improved 100%. There is a huge difference in the taste and feel of the filtered water compared to water straight from the tap. Ive been using it for a couple of weeks. I heat the tap water before adding the charcoal and leave it for 10-12hrs and it works perfectly every time.
09/03/2017, By Nina
We tested Newlands Spring Water, ordinary tap water and kuro-bo filtered water and kuro-bo was without doubt the best, most refreshing tasting water! Our whole family loves it! Would highly recommend it - and I love the easy and natural way the charcoal can be disposed of when its done its job after 3 months.
24/02/2017, By lisa
Love the product, water tastes great.
14/02/2017, By Robyn
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!
