What is a Canny?

A Canny is a premium smell proof bag made with activated carbon, bamboo charcoal, and waterproof polyester. Designed to hold and withstand any smelly item you put in it.

What makes Canny packs smell proof?

Canny smell proof bags are made with activated carbon and bamboo charcoal fabrics. Each fabric has a fine network of pores, therefore creating additional surface area creating adsorption affect. With this technology it absorbs any smell trying to escape from the Canny bag.

Are Canny bags waterproof?

Canny bags are water resistant. Meaning, they can withstand rain, spilled drinks, or any other liquid it may come in contact with. If the smell proof bag was submerged, it would not be waterproof.

What is activated carbon?

Activated carbon or also referred to as activated charcoal is a form of carbon created to have small, low volume pores creating a large surface area for adsorption process. Activated carbon is typically derived from charcoal. Canny smell proof fabric is designed with activated carbon derived from charcoal.

How does activated carbon work?

Activated carbon is woven into a fabric material a large surface area of granular activated carbons. Granular Activated Carbon (activated charcoal) is an adsorbent derived from carbonaceous raw material, in which thermal or chemical means have been used to remove most of the volatile non-carbon constituents and a portion of the original carbon content, yielding a structure with high surface area. This surface area is highly porous and attracts and holds organic chemicals inside it, creating a smell proof barrier.

Is there a warranty on my Canny?

What is bamboo charcoal and how does it work?

Bamboo charcoal is also known as activated carbon, but made from the bamboo plant. The bamboo is heated to extremely high temperatures and turned into charcoal. From here the charcoal is woven into a fabric. This fabric is also very porous and adsorbs and attracts organic chemicals inside it.

Why use bamboo charcoal fabric?

We decided to use bamboo charcoal fabric for many reasons. First, it created a double barrier to our Canny bags, it is a highly granular activated carbon with excellent adsorbing properties. This assists by trapping any smells that try to escape the smell proof pouch. Also, bamboo has antimicrobial properties making your Canny bag stay clean from any bacteria or fungus.

Is bamboo sustainable and should it be used?
