NATURAL WATER FILTER

Drinking clean water is essential for a healthy life. In central Europe, we are lucky to have a regular supply of drinkable water directly from the tap. However, its purity is not always to take for granted! The conventional tap water often contains elements that don’t belong there and thus not only deteriorate its taste but above all can have a negative long term effect on our health. Luckily, there exist ecological ways to further purify our tap water and even improve its taste.

So which solution did we find?

We have been searching for an easy and effective solution, how we can purify our own tap water in an ecological way. We tried several options and the best experience we had with Kishu Binchotan active coal, which is not only 100% natural but also easy to carry and use. It’s soaking up impurities from the water like a sponge and we can have a good feeling about drinking clean water everywhere we go. And it’s so easy!

We have decided that we would like to share this experience with you and so the idea of GoodFilter – an active coal stick that you can have with you everywhere, was born. We are excited to share it with you!

What is GoodFilter?

GoodFilter is special active coal, also known as Kishu Binchotan, which is handmade in the Wakayama region in Japan, where it has been used for its purifying properties and health benefits for centuries. It’s possibly one of the most ecological water filters for drinking water in the world. By adding GoodFilter to your bottle you create a naturally purifying process. GoodFilter binds unwanted chemicals and impurities, balances the pH of the water and softens it while supplying it with minerals and improving its taste.

GoodFilter is a natural product, which is produced in a sustainable way. Its lifetime is about 3 – 5 months. After its use, you can break it up and dig it down in your garden where it will go back to the circle of life being a natural fertilizer for your plants.

We believe that a key to a healthy life is to stay hydrated with fresh clean water! We are happy to offer you a natural eco-friendly “filter to go” that will provide the best possible care to the water you tap to your GoodGlass anywhere you go!

“The wise man is like water. Water benefits all things and does not compete with them. In the world, there is nothing more soft or weak than water, yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.”

HOW IT STARTED

“I never feel as alive as when I’m in nature and at sea, but it feels like wherever I go today I see plastic waste all around, from the most hidden beaches to the deep forests. It breaks my heart to see what we people are causing. So I decided to create a personal initiative and make it my mission in life to work for a sustainable planet. As a part of that came GoodGlass.” Johan, founder of GoodGlass

In Asia, they believe that green tea should always be enjoyed out of glass. Why? Because then you are able to see its beauty and fully enjoy its taste, and that’s half the pleasure of drinking it. What more, drinking out of glass is the purest way both for us and for our planet. This idea really resonated with us, and so the initial plan was born.

Which one is the right one?

The main idea behind GoodGlass is to do what we can to lower the world’s addiction to plastic bottles and other single-use products. We believe that if we offer high quality, reusable alternatives people will love, it will make it easier to live a life with less waste & lead to people passing this idea forward in a natural way.

To achieve this we needed a bottle that would fit every purpose and always be the answer to “Which bottle should I choose?” A bottle with simple, beautiful design, made of pure materials and great practical use. Something playful that would spark creativity! We also wanted it to be suitable for all drinks we love including tea, coffee, lemonades, fruit infusions and herbs.

& so GoodGlass was born!

We began a long thorough search for the right manufacturer that could meet our criterias. Finally, we found a place in the Zhejiang province in China, where they could achieve a high quality, care and fair production, which we can be proud of & where the materials for production come from local sources.

After long journey of experimenting with various designs on our friends, family and colleagues we finally found the best possible experience and GoodGlass was born! Since then, we have continually improved design and quality to ensure that GoodGlass meets all our requirements and it keeps getting better. The final product is so much more than we have ever hoped for and we are so happy to be able to share it with you!

And how did it continue?

Since GoodGlass first saw the light of the world in 2017, many things has happened including introducing GoodWood. It has been an exciting journey so far, it has not always been easy. There have been hard times & mistakes, but it has taught us a lot. The positive feedback from you is what keeps us going and makes it worth it! Everyday we get a little bit better and better at fulfilling our goals and offer you the best experience possible!
