Good for the Environment

Diatomaceous earth is made of single-celled aquatic algae which is the naturally occurring fossilized remains of diatoms. Diatoms have a positive effect on our environment, both in our oxygen and food supplies. Diatoms use carbon dioxide and water in photosynthesis to convert carbon and hydrogen to carbohydrates with energy absorbed from the sun. Oxygen is produced as a by-product and is released into the atmosphere.

It’s estimated that as much as 60 percent of the oxygen in our atmosphere is derived from the oceans, in which the oxygen is largely due to the activity of diatoms.
