U.S. firm says it’s developed hemp water filter


A Florida, USA-based company says it has developed a hemp water filter that reduces rust, chlorine and E.Coli.  Foundation for Industrial Hemp Production & Research (FIHPR) said the filter, which combines hemp fiber and coconut shell carbon, purifies water at the tap without the need for chemicals or costly filtering systems. The company claims the device reduces natural gas, dyes and tannins while the hemp micro-fibers capture solids and kill 95% of bacteria and microbes without leaving toxic residue.

Each filter costs $9.99 and a refill pack of 4 sells for $19.99, FIHPR said.
