Q: "What Are The Benefits Of A Breathe Green Charcoal Bag?"

Q: "Can I Rejuvenate The Charcoal Bag In The Oven?"

No, please, don’t do that.

Q: "Can The Bamboo Charcoal Be Recycled?"

Absolutely! Bamboo charcoal is an amazing product. After two years as an air purifier, the bamboo charcoal makes a wonderful addition to your garden, where it promotes plant growth and completes its lifecycle as a product that comes from the earth and ultimately gives back to the earth.

Q: "Can The Charcoal Bags Be Used In The Refrigerator, Freezer, or Cooler?"

Yes, you can use the charcoal bags to maintain a fresh, dry and odorless in your refrigerator, freezer or cooler.

Q: "Do I Need To Activate The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag When I Take It Out Of The Packaging?"

No, you don't! The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag is sealed inside the packaging, unable to absorb anything until it is opened. Just take the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag out of the package and place directly in your desired space.

Q: "How Do I Rejuvenate The Bag?"

To rejuvenate, we recommend placing your bag in the sun once a month for at least one hour. We recommend flipping over the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag occasionally while it is in the sun so all of the bamboo charcoal can rejuvenate. If you live somewhere that doesn’t have much sun, know that the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag will last for more than 30 days without sun, and in some cases as long as 90 days. However, you’ll get the best performance when you put it in the sun every 30 days.

Q: "How Long Does It Take For The Bag To Work?"

It begins working immediately after you open the bag. However, because it doesn’t give off a scent like an air freshener, it can be difficult to know if it’s working right away. But you’ll know soon. In just a few days, you will notice major improvements. Within a week, odors will be completely neutralized.

Q: "How Much Bamboo Is In Each Bag?"

Each bag contains just under a half-pound.

Q: "I Left My Breathe Green Charcoal Bag In The Rain; Is It Ruined?"

It may not have that fresh, out-of-the-package look but it is not permanently damaged. Simply place the bag in the sun to let it dry out. Once it’s dry, the charcoal will begin to work again.

Q: "I Really Don’t Get A Lot Of Sun Where I live; Do I Have To Put It Outside?"

The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag does not need heat to rejuvenate. The UV rays from the sun rejuvenate the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag and there are UV rays even on cold days. The sun may not be as strong through, so leave it outside for two hours instead of one. Placing it inside behind a sunny window, may not be effective because most windows block out essential UV rays for rejuvenation.

Q: "Is The Bamboo In Each Bag In Pellets Or Powder Form?"

No, they are not made of pellets but big chunks of charcoal pieces.

Q: "Is the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag Safe Around Pets And/Or Children?"

Yes! The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag contains one ingredient only – bamboo charcoal – which has no chemicals or toxins, making it completely safe to use around pets and children.

Q: "Is The Plastic Bag That Comes With The Product Biodegradable?"

No, the plastic bag is not biodegradable.

Q: "What Is The Weight/Dimension Of The Charcoal Bags?"

We have two types of charcoal bags, regular charcoal bags and shoe insert charcoal bags. The regular charcoal bags weight and dimensions are: 200g: (7 x 6.5 inches). The shoe bags weight and dimensions are: 50g: (7 x 2 inches).

Q: "What’s In The Bag?"

There is just one ingredient inside the Charcoal Bag- 100% Bamboo Charcoal.

Q: "Where Is The Best Placement For The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag?"

It depends on the bag’s size and purpose. It is best to put the bag in fairly open areas where air can pass through – it’s not good to tuck it away or place it underneath things (unless, of course, you’re using it for a gym bag or hamper – but when you’re placing it in a room or a car, you want to have air circulation around the bag). You do not have to hang the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag, unless you find it more convenient to store it that way. Placing it on a table is enough. The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag can be placed on absolutely any surface or material.

Q: "Why Does The Bag Only Last For Two Years?"

The Breathe Green Charcoal Bag works by absorbing pollutants from the air and temporarily storing them in its pores until rejuvenation. Once placed outside in the sun, the UV rays release and disintegrate the pollutants. Some of the more serious toxins, such as formaldehyde, can leave a very small amount of residue behind in the pores. This builds up over time, making the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag less effective at absorbing particles out of the air. Sometimes the bag lasts more than two years; you will have to be the judge of that.

Q: "Charcoal Bags: Why Is Bamboo Charcoal Better Than Regular Charcoal?"

Bamboo charcoal is simply a better all-around product. Regular charcoal is made from normal trees (not bamboo) so it takes decades for the trees to grow back once they are cut down. Breathe Green Bamboo is a grass and grows back to full maturity in 5 years. Regular charcoal production pollutes the air, whereas bamboo charcoal is a carbon neutral process. Bamboo charcoal is more porous (about 10 times), so you need a lot less of it to cover a much larger space.

Q: "Why should I use the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag?"

Many conventional air fresheners contain dangerous chemicals such as formaldehyde, petrochemicals, p-dichlorobenzene and aerosol pollutants. We created the Breathe Green Charcoal Bag as a safe and natural alternative. Plus, it lasts much longer, saving you a lot of money.

Q: "Will one large 500g Breathe Green Charcoal Bag cover several rooms that are connected?"

It is best to buy separate Breathe Green Charcoal Bags for each space of your home, for the best results. Even if, for example, your kitchen and living room are technically one room, it is best to place one Breathe Green Charcoal Bag in each area.
