Essentially a compact cube of clean air, the KURO CUBE will efficiently purify and freshen the air in any small space around the house – such as your fridge, closets, drawers, shoe cupboard and even your car.
Made from powdered and compressed White Charcoal, this powerful air freshener adsorbs gases, pollution and odours from the surrounding air, without the use of chemicals or perfume.
Placing the cube in your fridge will not only remove bad smells, but also keep your fruit and vegetables fresh and crisp for longer, as ethylene gases are adsorbed into the cube. This way, your investment will soon have paid for itself.
Your KURO CUBE will remain fully active for one year. Once you’ve finished using it, nature will gladly take it back. An excellent fertilizer, just crush it and mix with potting soil where it will add nourishment and regulate the PH balance – so your plants can thrive and flourish and do an even better job of absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere around this planet that we love so much.
Our White Charcoal is produced using the same methods and processes that have been used for centuries. In this ancient Japanese method, pieces of wood are baked in hand-built clay kilns, – low temperatures at first and then at extremely high temperatures with restricted oxygen. This allows carbon to be captured in the wood, a process called pyrolysis. Perfecting the difficult ritual of burning requires patience and dedication and the people who produce White Charcoal are artisans and often have a family history of being charcoal makers. Although many Asian countries produce Binchotan, Kishu Binchotan is superior due to the potent combination of the best quality Japanese Oak and the traditional unique craftsmanship.
