It's Easy Breathing Green

Let's clear the air. We understand that you don't like odors in your house, who does? But by filling the air with aerosol, or lighting a perfumed candle, aren't you just covering up the problem with something smellier? Here's what you should try: bamboo charcoal. Seriously! It's been used for centuries in Japan. It's all-natural, non-toxic, and it's full of tiny crevices that actually trap odor-causing particles out of the air. Smoke, pets, mildew - it even helps reduce airborne bacteria and allergens! The small pouch is enough to cover 90 square feet of space, and for more odor protection, pick the large style for up to 250 square feet of coverage. The purifying bags will last for two years. To care for it, you just leave it in direct sunlight for an hour, once a month. It just makes sense to fight odors without making a stink about it. Made in China.

Comments about NATURAL AIR PURIFYING BAG:

I've had a smell in my bedroom for several years; like sweaty socks and a car garage. Even though the carpet was professionally cleaned and I've burned incense a number of times, the smell stayed. It seemed the worst coming from the bedroom closet, so I hung the charcoal bag from a clothes hanger in there. It's been less than a month and the smell is almost 100% gone. I can't be more happy or surprised!

        I am using these in my living room and bedroom to alleviate the dog odor from my apartment. I have looked at similar products for several years but was leery of their effectiveness. They really work and it is much better than aerosol room fresheners or scented candles.

              After using the mini in my car (with great results). I placed the large one in my living room. No more chemical sprays to mask any odors when they can be eliminated. I really appreciate the cost savings in not having to purchase cover up sprays and especially the health benefit. The burlap looking bag design blends in well with our rustic decor. I liked it so we'll that I gave as gifts to three sisters.

                      I have a bird that lives in my room and I am always worried about her breathing in harmful "stuff." Their respiratory systems are extremely sensitive and they can be killed by everyday household products. When I found this I thought, why not? It has a convenient "grommet" at one corner so I was able to hang it near Lulu's cage and it has a nice packaging so I don't mind it being visible. I will be purchasing another larger one for my mom who hates "smells" and one for my brother who has a new baby. It's not exactly noticeable that its working, but it certainly couldn't hurt!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was very quick, arrived in great condition and I will be purchasing again!

                              This solar-activated pouch is just the kind of natural, non-toxic product we love here at UncommonGoods. Do you agree that this product is PURE genius?

                              We need to keep the air cleaner! Plus if it gets rid of allergens-well that's priceless. And it's not that pricey either. Does it have an odor to it? How many months does it last?

                              To answer the second part of your question, it lasts two years. Each "charge" lasts about a month, so just place it in direct sunlight for an hour or so once every 30 days and you're set for another run of natural freshness!

                              OOOH it looked good until I found out it was made in China. Sorry folks but I am sick of products made in PRC. I am trying very, very hard NOT to buy products made overseas altho it is tough.

                              I'm always looking to keep my home fresh without killing the ozone with air fresheners. This is awesome! The added benefit of fighting airborne allergens is a major bonus.

                              Normally I'm a bit isolationist when it comes to buying products from China, but this one is a different story. Bamboo charcoal is something they use themselves. My understanding is that it balances out the humidity on a room as well. Well worth the $10 on a hot, sticky day. (Although there are a gazillion uses for this product, I think this would be a terrific gift for new parents. They could drop it into the bottom of their babies' diaper pail:)

                              This product is genius. However...can you find one made in Japan near the same price point? If it is used there one should be available. If not there, in the U.S.?

                              My husband hates all the fake floral smells and scented candles. Maybe he would go for this. This product seems to be reasonably priced, too.

                              Would be great for our lower level that sometimes has that "basement smell".

                              Love this! Everyone has a time or place where the air needs to be cleared. Great price and I would feel good about using it.

                              Would be great as a sachet in linen closets or any room that can get musty and smell stale.

                              This seems to be the ideal thing for in a baby's room... or a gym locker perhaps? clothing closet for sure where the shoes are!

                              Nice concept. would consider if made in USA or Japan.

                              This is definitely something I would purchase several of. So much better than over-scented candles that give off smoke and leave behind sooty deposits.

                              This is a little expensive, but pretty neat.

                              I will definitely buy this product!

                              I'd buy several of these

                              You guys are really big on China! I'm really stuck on the USA. Get the message? It appears I'm not alone and it's a darn 'bout time!
