For the Eco-Conscious Dad.
These glass bottles look a little intriguing? Good! This gift will be a conversation starter! They contain a stick of Japanese bincho-tan charcoal which works in two ways. It starts by absorbing impurities such as chlorine, lead, mercury and copper traces found in regular tap water. And then, minerals like potassium and magnesium are released from the charcoal, giving you cleaner tasting and purified water for up to 6 months. It’s an entirely natural solution to water contamination. No more buying bottled water in plastic bottles, that’s a gift that will keep on giving!
