I Like This + !

KISHU BINCHOTAN WATER PURIFIER: Japanese Kishu Binchotan is the best quality white charcoal for purifying water. White charcoal is naturally activated through a controlled burning process done by hand and based on traditional Japanese methods. Binchotan soaks up chlorine and other unpleasant tastes from drinking water while releasing natural minerals into it. Binchotan has an alkaline effect, softening the water and improving the overall taste. To use Binchotan, boil it for 5 minutes to 'activate', then place in your water pitcher. Re-use it up to 3 months and then recycle it by breaking it apart into your plant soil. They will benefit from its nutrients. You can boil Binchotan once a month in order to optimize freshness. If Binchotan breaks, thats ok, its still good!

> Has anyone used this???? I am so curious about this. Sounds very interesting!

LONDON LIFE UTENSIL SET: London Life is a 7-piece Acacia wood utensil set, complete with felt case, from Chabatree. These gorgeous hand-carved pieces will light up any place setting! Chabatree call their products 'peaceful' meaning they are environmentally conscious, using plantation farmed wood with no chemical finishes. Wash with warm soapy water, but never leave to soak. Not dishwasher safe.

> Great for travel and when you are on the go around town!

BALLOON SHAKERS: Masayuki Kurokawa (1937) is an award winning architect and product designer, whose work has won numerous honors worldwide. Traditionally, salt and pepper shakers have one hole for pepper and three holes for salt and the container is usually opaque so the contents inside can not be seen. Mr. Kurokawas concept behind the Balloon Shakers was so you can see what's inside the shaker as it can be used for not only salt and pepper, but all kinds of seasonings. Hand-blown by Shotoku Glass Co., who originally created lightbulbs in Japan, therefore creating a very thin (yet durable) glass balloon.

> I just think these little guys are so beautiful!
