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.
