Many of us think that tap water doesn’t taste great. We prefer water from a bottle – usually a plastic bottle. But tap can taste great. Wanda bamboo charcoal is a natural, sustainable product that filters tap water to remove the tastes and odours that make us reluctant to drink it. The result is great tasting, low cost, mineral rich water –without plastic. Great for you and great for the planet.


All around us we can see the impact of our addiction to plastic. Our seas and its wildlife are choking on discarded bottles, bags and packaging. The scenes are heartbreaking and there is a growing determination to do something about it.

One of the biggest sources of plastic waste is water bottles – a staggering one million plastic bottles a minute are bought around the world.

Bottled water can travel thousands of miles before reaching consumers. The global production, transportation and refrigeration of bottled water amounts to over 160 million avoidable barrels of oil every year. It has to stop and it can, because for most of us, cheap, plentiful water is close at hand – it comes out of the tap.


Wanda bamboo charcoal comes from Moso bamboo, grown in Fujian province in southeastern China. Moso bamboo is a major source of cash and livelihood for some of the world's poorest people.
Unlike hardwood trees, bamboo regrows after harvesting in the same way that grass grows after cutting. It can grow up to a metre a day and doesn't require pesticides, fertilisers or much watering. Bamboo forests also contribute to the regulation of the environment by absorbing carbon dioxide, producing oxygen and controlling soil erosion.


Wanda bamboo charcoal is extremely porous with a surface area of more than 126 tennis courts – ten times larger than wood charcoal. Its millions of tiny holes trap impurities, eliminating unwanted tastes and odours.
