Wanda charcoal uses Moso bamboo – the fastest growing plant in the world. Found primarily in China, it is ready to harvest in five years in contrast to oak, another source of activated charcoal, that takes as long as 80 years to harvest. Wanda’s Moso bamboo is organic, and hand cut on a family plantation in Fuzou province in China. Once harvested, it is carefully heated and cooled over 30 days to activate it. It is this process that creates its intensely porous structure and unique adsorption capability.
