|We make our bamboo charcoal out of one of the highest quality bamboos in the world- Moso Bamboo. Moso bamboo is a species of giant timber bamboo native to China that grows to 55 feet and up. Like most bamboo, Moso quickly grows into full maturity in just 5 years. We get ours from a farm in China’s Fujian Province.|
|The process of converting the bamboo into bamboo charcoal begins with cutting down the bamboo (it then grows back). The cut bamboo is dried for a few weeks, and then treated in a kiln at 750°C for two weeks to create the charcoal.|
|As it cooks, the charcoal develops millions of tiny, porous holes. It is through these holes that the charcoal absorbs impurities in the air such as chemicals and moisture.|
After the charcoal is exhausted as an air purifier, the bamboo charcoal makes a wonderful addition to your garden, where it promotes plant growth due to its mineral-rich nature and ability to retain moisture. Simply cut the Moso Bag open and sprinkle the bamboo charcaol into a potted plant or soil.
This completes the Moso Bag's life cycle as a product that comes from the earth and ultimately gives back to the earth.
