Delicious drinking water but make it completely plastic-free! Generic water filter systems often involve large, clunky pitchers and an abundance of plastic filters that must be disposed of and refilled every few months. This means clean, fresh-tasting water comes at the cost of the planet, with unnecessary plastic waste. And that doesn't taste so great!

Tired of throwing away her own filters, Judith Bershof, founder of Kishu, decided to dig deeper to find a sustainable solution and that was when she came across the incredible potential of charcoal!

Activated charcoal is used in most filter systems today, but is often encased in plastic. Kishu brings the simple solution directly to the water: a small piece of charcoal that is made from oak branches that have been sustainably harvested...and fired by artisans in Japan. The branches are transformed through a heating process to become a hard, glass-like material that when put into water, reduces the presence of lead, mercury, copper, aluminum, uranium, and molybdenum -- heavy metals that one does not want in their drinking water! In addition to removing harmful toxins, charcoal also imparts essential minerals into the water including calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The best part is that after being used for four months, instead of being thrown away, it can be composted or enjoy a second life as a refrigerator deodorizer or as drainage for house plants.

With Kishu, clean drinking water is as easy as drop, drink, sip!
