It makes me smile on the inside that eco-friendly products, companies and living are becoming more prominent, and that people are responding to it. As demand for healthier living grows, it breeds innovation. My new sponsor, C60 Bamboo, has taken that spirit of innovation to a whole new level with their bamboo carbon products.

Bamboo charcoal, put simply, is charcoal made from bamboo. From the images above, you can see that it looks like traditional charcoal, just in bamboo form, but you can read more about how it is made. Bamboo charcoal for healthy living purposes is made by using a special high-temperature heating process that turns the bamboo into pure carbon. That process creates a product with the ability to absorb a wide range of odors, chemicals, radio-magnetic energy and other harmful substances found around your home.

According to C60, many Asian civilizations have used charcoal for medicinal and healthy living purposes for centuries. I know that it is also used throughout the world for water filtration, air purification and and more. I actually have a charcoal filter in my low-flow shower head.

Bamboo charcoal is a product that’s a bit hard to describe, so here are some of the benefits that eHomeRemedies claimed when they’re using it:

  • Deodorization: Bamboo charcoal can absorb odors from all over the house, including pet odors, and it can also help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Relaxation: Bamboo Charcoal releases negative ions to balance the positive ions emitted from modern electronics and appliances in our homes. Balancing out the ions in your living environment helps relieve tension, stress, and anxiety, and you feel relaxed and refreshed. Negative ions can also help your pets relax and feel better too.
  • Hair and skin care: By placing bamboo charcoal in an inner layer of pillows and bedding, it can help regulate the humidity in your bed and absorb sweat and other chemicals your body emits normally during rest. It can also help control pet allergens in and around your bedding and furniture.
  • Antibacterial and anti-poison: Charcoal has been used for medicinal purposes for many centuries. Records indicate that charcoal was used to adsorb toxic, harmful and poisonous substances. Bamboo Charcoal has significant antibacterial properties that will help improve the indoor air quality in your home.

So take some time and visit C60 Bamboo and learn more about their innovative products!

    It is amazing to read the benefits of Bamboo charcoal, and its on my list of things to get now. I really like the fact it absorbs not just odors but moisture, & electromagnetic radiation

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! My sink and disposal is pretty cheap (apartment living, ug) and every so often it starts to smell. I’ve tried all the remedies–ice and salt, baking soda, etc–but you can still smell the garbage disposal. I went ahead and bought some of this–even if it’s just under the sink next to the trash, it should help a lot. Thanks!

    @Laura You are very welcome! I would love to hear how it works once you get it 🙂

    Since you asked–
    Initially, I wasn’t all that impressed with it. Partly because of aesthetics–I’d seen the picture of the cool black bamboo and this is just a small, circular jar, like a heavy cardboard tub of face cream. But I stuck it under my sink and closed the doors. The trash under there is what I consider the ‘food’ trash–I even had to put egg yolks in it after making a low-cholesterol dessert–and I highly doubted that little thing would do any good.
    But I caught maybe a whiff of something not-right just once in the entire week I had it under my sink. And then some veggies went bad in the fridge, and the baking soda was NOT cutting it at all, so I stuck that little bamboo charcoal in the fridge. That’s when I was really impressed: it sucked the foul odor right out. Within an hour, the fridge smelled like a fridge again–it even pulled the smell out of the freezer, where it had been lingering, from it’s little spot on the middle shelf of the fridge.
    So yes–definitely worth the money. I’m not sure how to test out how long it will last, except to throw away some nasty stuff and see what happens. Also–I sort of expected it to make the air smell better, and it doesn’t. It just absorbs bad odors…it doesn’t freshen. So the under the sink trash still smells like trash, I just couldn’t smell the rotting eggs or the bad veggies anymore.

    Radio magnetic energy? I guess I missed that when I did physics. Oh wait, no I didn’t, there’s no such thing.

    Although if there was, I’d love to know how carbon could “absorb” it.
